42 IntelliJ IDEA Tips and Tricks in 45 Minutes
Thursday, April 17th, 14:30 – 15:20, Seine B

There are so many features in IntelliJ IDEA, but we’re going to concentrate on just 42, and we’re going to try and show them in 45 minutes. That’s around 1 tip per minute because we need to leave 3 minutes for Hello, Welcome and Thank you. If a single one goes badly, we have less than a minute per tip. But here’s hoping it won’t.

Embracing HTTP in the Era of API’s
Friday, April 18th, 11:45 – 12:35, M. Davis

It’s all about REST in today’s world. Every service you look at, people are providing a REST API for it. Surprisingly, very few of these APIs are even REST, if we’re talking about REST as in a system that abides by a series of constraints making it RESTful. But the positive note is that it has brought to light the power of HTTP as an application protocol, something very often undervalued and misunderstood, even today. This talk is going to focus on the core values of HTTP for what it is. It will cover all aspects including: headers, error management, verbs, content negotiation, caching, security, messages, request and responses.

We look forward to meeting you in Paris!
