8am Monday morning, the first thing we saw after getting through registration was plenty of food to keep you fuelled between sessions… one of the many reasons Devoxx is the best Developer conference in Europe.
Slightly disappointed however – I couldn’t find any croissants…
First, we dropped by a session on using Tensorflow to create neural networks. One of the examples given involved teaching a neural network how to play (and win) Pong.
Afterwards, a BOF session on blockchain. Arrived 20 minutes early to find all the seats already taken and the room packed…
..so I decided to go join Ovi for a session on Design Driven Development.
The whole ‘big screen’ experience is amazing – the talks really do feel like movies sometimes.
Next on the schedule, one of the talks I was looking forward to seeing: “Java9 and REPL. Forget debugging, welcome joy and productivity”.
I was meant to have a picture here, but I was so engrossed in Jakub’s talk I completely forgot… JShell is definitely one of the best new features in Java 9.
Kotlin has a noticeably big presence this year, so I decided to drop by a session on design patterns in Kotlin.
…and most importantly, Monday’s loot:
Are you currently at Devoxx? Or maybe you’re watching the livestreams?
