Silicon Valley approach to building powerful PaaS

Presentation abstract:

Learn an innovative approach to back-end service development via an internal PaaS, which is both delightful for customers and pleasant to work with for engineers.

Geared towards Senior Java developers,  the talk has a strong emphasis on architecture. It will cover highly modular, meta-data driven development, used to address some of the most challenging problems of building distributed systems. The audience will explore ways of leveraging OSGi, Fluent Java APIs, with a model driven approach to gain developer and operational efficiency.
