PraxisLIVE is an open-source hybrid-visual IDE for live programming, built on top of the NetBeans platform. While the IDE is primarily aimed at creative coders, its underlying forest-of-actors runtime supports real-time coding Java in general.
PraxisCORE brings aspects of Erlang, Smalltalk and Extempore into the Java world, providing a powerful platform for media processing, data visualisation, sensors, robotics, IoT, and lots more!
In his talk Neil will explore some of the trials and tribulations of designing a just-in-time programming system in Java, including actors, classloaders and reactive dataflows, with the aid of some hypnotic visuals and bleepy sounds.
Neil C Smith is an Artist & Technologist from Oxford, UK. An artist working with code, he builds interactive spaces & projections, and improvised & live-coded performances. A technologist with a creative edge, he is lead developer of PraxisLIVE, maintains various Java media libraries including the bindings for GStreamer, and is an Apache NetBeans committer.

20:30 - Gherkin Refactoring Patterns
Good Gherkin is easy to read but hard to write. And while there are many tips and tricks for writing good Gherkin, often teams still struggle to keep their scenarios clean, informative and readable.
In this talk, we will take a practical look at some real-world Gherkin scenarios, and see why they stink. More importantly, we present a set of simple refactoring patterns which can help you improve your own scenarios.
John is a prominent international figure in the domain of behaviour driven development, automated testing, developer best practices, continuous integration and delivery, and software life cycle development optimisation in general. He is the founder of the open source Thucydides Automated Acceptance Test Library project, and has authored great O'Reilly and Manning manuals such as BDD in Action, Java Power Tools, and Jenkins: The Definitive Guide.
John currently resides in London and through his consultancy company Wakaleo Consulting helps UK and Irish organisations optimize their software development processes by utilising agile development practices such as Behavioral-Driven Development, Continuous Integration, Test-Driven Development, Acceptance-Test Driven Development, Build Automation, Code Quality Practices and Automated Web Testing.
