Becoming Fully Buzzword Compliant

How do you keep your skills up to date in this fast-moving and turbulant industry?

Abstract

It’s all about Containers, Serverless and Reactive Programming right now! ProgSCon London will explore these trends with leading industry experts. Several talks will also feature Blockchain, Microservices and Big Data.”

You’re here at ProgSCon to hear all about the latest trends in technology, to learn about them and decide which ones to apply and figure out how.

During this talk, Trisha will give an irreverent overview of the current technical landscape and present a survival guide for those who want to stay ahead in this turbulent industry.

I’ve already listed resources for my research in this area in Real World Java 9, but these are particularly used in this presentation:
