Find yourself overwhelmed with hundreds of to-dos? Is your hard-drive littered with dozens of killer ideas that you started with enthusiasm and then just fizzled away? Do you feel like you are moving as fast as can but only getting to the wrong place quicker? Well perhaps this session will help.
There are various techniques and strategies available to us today that aim to help with exactly this conundrum - from Getting Things Done (TM) to Personal Kanban. Unfortunately it is often easy to be extremely productive using these systems, but not very effective. After all, it's not about getting things done, but getting the RIGHT things done. In this talk we will discuss not only how to get things done, but also attempt to figure out what it is you actually need to be doing.
In this session, I will attempt to show you how you can leverage various strategies to be more effective, knock to-dos out and have fun while doing it. If time permits we will close with an overview of the tools that are available to you, and how you can use these to become a to-do list ninja :)
The enterprise today consists of tens, if not hundreds of applications, all designed to meet the needs of the business. These applications rarely live in a silo, and often there is a need to establish a communication protocol between these applications.
There are various approaches to integration, and in this talk we will discuss the pros and cons of each. We will then focus on one particular approach, and solution - Spring Integration brought to us by the folks at Spring Source. We will talk about both inter and intra application integration, and look at some of the ways we can leverage Spring Integration within the enterprise
In this session we will look to see how we can refactor our learning - what tools, and methodologies can we use to help us learn quicker and better - how we can create a store that gives us quick access to information when we really need it.
We all work in an industry in which not only do the tools that we use change ever few years, but one in which we have to shift the very paradigms these tools are built on! Even the most trivial of projects entails tens of different toolkits, frameworks, and languages coming together, and somehow we need to know how to leverage each one. How does one keep up? Despite all our years in schools, and our in-born nature to learn, we often are never taught how to learn. How can we learn faster, and retain even more?
In this session we will take a look at various tools and techniques available to us and see how we can make our learning effective.
