First Fridays for Startups - Lightning Talks - 3rd March 2017

Live Coding with Pivotal Labs

12.30 to 13.30 in the Events Room (The Vaults)

For developers and technical founders / product managers.

Real live coding by Pivotal Labs, using agile development and showing how to build a product quickly, yet avoiding buggy code. 

2 presentations, 25 minutes each followed by 5 minutes of Q&A.


Talk #1: REST API with Spring Boot

Let's say your manager asked you to build a REST API that persists user data to the database, and you have 20 mins to show him a working version from scratch. Can you do it? With Spring Boot, you can!

Talk #2: Introduction to Concourse CI (Continuous Integration)

CI and CD are core parts of Extreme Programming practice, and we use it heavily at Pivotal. The Pivotal Cloud Foundry team, not happy with the current state of CI solutions, developed one in-house, called ConcourseCI and we love it. In this Lightning Talk, I will show you how to use it, when to use it and some of the most popular integrations.
