If I had to mention a single technical blog that I always find informative and I have followed for many years, I would say without doubts the Database Performance Blog from Percona. That is why I am so keen to attend this year the Percona Live Open Source Database Conference in Dublin and present a lighting talk “Do Not Press That Button” on September 26th. You can find more about my short session on RDS here. Looking forward to Dublin!
As the BBC recently reported, Matthew Nimetz has spent the last 23 years trying to find a name for the republic of Macedonia that can be accepted both in Skopje and Athens. But a solution for the Macedonia naming dispute has not been agreed yet.
What name should a developer use today when working on location-based services? The user friendly Macedonia or the formal but longer The Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia ? How can you make your users in Skopje and Athens both happy?
This is one of the examples I might use at the next Codemotion in Berlin. I do not expect to discuss in half an hour all the geopolitical challenges targeting an international audience and their workarounds, but I am very excited to present the talk “The (accidental) political developer” .
See you on October 12 & 13 at Kulturbrauerei!
Funambol is proudly hosting the very first Italian Amazon Web Services Hackathon. The event is taking place in Pavia on April 5th and the topic will be IoT. It will be a one day hackathon starting with a keynote and presentation of AWS IoT services by Amazon followed by projects using Rasberry devices. You can register here and you can ask me more information.
This is a subset of the slides presented at WeDev as part of today’s Development and testing of mobile applications on AWS event. The video of the full presentation (in Italian) is available here.
