Another day, another talk: Think before you develop!

Another workshop we have just approved for Codebits 2009 belongs to Kai Seidler.

Kai graduated from Technical University of Berlin with a Diplom-Informatiker degree (equivalent to a Master in Computer Science). In the 90's he created and managed Germany's biggest IRCnet server irc.fu-berlin.de, and co-managed one of the world's largest FTP server ftp.cs.tu-berlin.de. He is truly an early bird to the Internet having professionally set up his first public web server in 1993. 

Since then, he has worked on numerous projects for a variety of international companies like Lufthansa, Audi, Toyota, Deutsche Telekom, Gruner+Jahr, or SuSE. In 2002 Kai co-founded Apache Friends and created the multi-platform Apache web server bundle XAMPP. His third book, Das XAMPPP-Handbuch, was published by Addison Wesley in 2006.

Currently Kai works as Senior Engineer/Technology Evangelist for Web Tier products at Sun Microsystems.

Talk title: Think before you develop!

Abstract: "This talk explores web server architectures, web services in general and discusses the pros and cons of different programing languages (like PHP, Java, Python, Ruby, Perl, JavaScript, ASP.NET) and database technologies in the field of web application development, deployment and hosting. In order to save time and keep development costs at a reasonable level, it's very important to identify system flaws and architectural weaknesses in an early stage of the development process. The talk shows pitfalls and common mistakes developers make when building web-based applications and also provides useful hints how to avoid them in an early stage. The talk ends with a quick introduction of horizontal and vertical scaling."

The targeted audience for this talk are software developers and all topics are presented from a developers point of view.

Pretty soon we'll be putting online a list with all the workshops.
