Mon, 02 Mar 09:00 AM - 05:00 PM Workshop
Workshop: Introduction to Golang
#Hackages Lab
The aim of this workshop is to train attendees to be comfortable with the Golang language (keywords and concept). Then we’ll build together different applications, beginning with a small cli application. After that we’ll build a microservice plugged to a database with different iterations and to serve different HTTP routes. In parallel we’ll explore all the tooling around Golang to let you test, debug and benchmark your code. With these tools we’ll be able to find how to improve your performance with Golang. At the end of this workshop you’ll have a docker image containing a binary of your microservice ready to go in production
Mon, 02 Mar 09:00 AM - 05:00 PM Workshop
Workshop Advanced React
#Hackages Lab
A general overview of what’s going to be included in the workshop:Advanced Patterns We’ll explore all the advanced techniques for making flexible and maintainable React components. We’ll see how using popular patterns like Compound Components, Controlled Components, Render Props, Function As A Child etc. can help us in simplifying things, making our components more reusable and our apps more declarative.React 16 & Beyond React 16 comes with some major changes and an update to the core algorithm. In this module, we’ll explore some practical use-cases for Portals, Fragments etc. React.lazy and Suspense will help us to easily code split and lazy load components in our app in order to reduce the final size of the bundle. We’ll see how the new Context API can simplify state-management and various component reusability patterns.Hooks Classes are so 2018, so we’ll start by learning everything about the biggest change that happened to React: Hooks. Combined with Context, they are changing the entire state-management game. We’ll cover useState, useEffect, useContext, etc. Although useful on their own, they’re even more powerful when combined and abstracted away in custom hooks.

Workshop Advanced RxJS in Angular
#Hackages Lab

This one-day training takes only 8 hours and transforms you into a reactive programming master.

When used correctly, RxJS is a technology that has the following advantages:

  • Less code
  • Readable code
  • Less bugs, because the reactive programming mindset takes care of 90% of the corner cases for us
  • It becomes way easier to write asynchronous code
  • Results in better overall code quality

This training contains theory, exercises and a bunch of question-rounds. We don’t want to spoil it too much, but we will create a reactive giphy application, a reactive calendar and more!

This course requires some foreknowledge. The attendee should know the following technologies:

  • Git
  • Javascript
  • Typescript
  • Angular basics (knowing how to create a component)

Tue, 03 Mar 09:00 AM - 05:00 PM Workshop
Workshop Implementing Secure Azure Networks
#Hackages Lab

Security is always number 1 or 2 in any survey on the fears of cloud computing. Networking in The Cloud is very different to traditional physical networking … but in some ways it is quite similar. The goals of this workshop are:

  • To teach you the fundamentals, the theory, of how Azure networking functions so you can understand the practical design and application
  • Do hands-on deployments of secure networks

As a result, this workshop takes you all the way back to the basics of Azure networking so you really understand the “wiring” of a secure network in the cloud. Only with that understanding do you understand that small is big. The topics covered in this class will secure small/mid businesses, platform deployments that require regulatory compliance, and large enterprises:

  • The Microsoft global network
  • Availability & SLA
  • Virtual network basics
  • Virtual network adapters
  • Peering
  • Service endpoints
  • Public IP Addresses
  • VNet gateways: VPN & ExpressRoute
  • Network Security Groups
  • Application Firewall
  • Route Tables
  • Third Party Firewalls
  • Azure Firewall
  • Architectures

Attendees will require an Azure subscription capable of deploying multiple 4 x single-core virtual machines, 1 x Azure Firewall, 1 x Web Application Gateway, and 1 x per GB Log Analytics Workspace for 1 day.

Tue, 03 Mar 09:00 AM - 05:00 PM Workshop
Workshop Continuous Delivery and Continuous Integration
#Hackages Lab

From git commit to production, the delivery process is the set of steps that take place to deliver your service to your customers. Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery – CI/CD – are practices based on the Agile Values which aim to automate this process as much as possible.

We will review these practices and see how to apply them with a specialised tool: CDS. This tool is built in-house at OVH and tries to facilitate the adoption of CI/CD good practices while also being designed to be easily maintainable for platform administrators. It is open source: https://ovh.github.io/cds and is the end-result of 12 years of experience in the field of CI/CD.

We will take a deep dive into workflows, these high-level processes which define the global sequence of pipelines/stages/jobs/steps to get from a git commit to a production deployment, and which are a key concept in the CDS tool.

During the day, we will use as case study a problem many organisations have: configuring CI/CD for a legacy application. At the end of the day, you will master the key concepts of CI/CD, and be able to master the CDS tool to apply them to your projects.

Tue, 03 Mar 09:00 AM - 05:00 PM Workshop

Wed, 04 Mar 09:00 AM - 05:00 PM Workshop
Workshop on Quarkus
#Hackages Lab

Cloud native applications in Java are great, but… despite a fantastic ecosystem around Java, it falls short in containers, in comparison to Go or Node.js. The initial memory consumption, the startup time, and the optimisations for long-running processes are killer criteria in the cloud. Quarkus is a Kubernetes native Java stack tailored for GraalVM and OpenJDK. With Quarkus, you can compile your application into a native executable, reduce the startup time to a few milliseconds, reduce the memory consumption to a few MB, and make applications ideally suited to run in containers.

This workshop explores why it matters and how you can leverage Quarkus and GraalVM to build supersonic, subatomic, cloud-native applications.

In this workshop, you will learn how to:

  • Build Web applications with Quarkus
  • Use Hibernate and Hibernate with Panache
  • Build event-driven microservices with Apache Kafka
  • Monitor your applications

Wed, 04 Mar 09:00 AM - 05:00 PM

Workshop: Mobile UX – building usable and delightful mobile apps
#Hackages Lab

The goal of this workshop is to help you build usable user centric mobile apps following the path through:

  • The strategy
  • Requirements gathering
  • Prototyping
  • User testing

You will learn about generic “mobile user behaviour” and how to gather your specific user needs with some guerilla user research techniques at the beginning of a project.
We will then apply this to plan user flows and to take content and architecture decisions for your app. You will learn the bases of mobile usability like designing for touch, navigation, content strategy, and we will take a close look at Apple and Android design guidelines.

We will apply all that knowledge to build and test quick prototypes for your mobile app. At the end of the workshop, you will be able to take some usability decisions and understand the basics of mobile user experience in order to build mobile apps prototypes and to test your concept before handing them to a UI designer.
