Set your code on fire with FlameGraphs
Currently there are several tools to analyze the behavior and performance of an application, but traditionally the way of displaying results is that of tabular, either flat or tree. In this talk we will take a peek at some alternative tool that "enlightens" the darkest corners of the behavior of our applications and the JVM, showing them in a completely new and more visual way: the FlameGraphs. During the intervention a "peek under the hood" will be given to some JVM mechanisms to understand the reasons behind the failures of most well known profilers.

Kubernetes on ARM64: Raspberry PI 4 cloud for a few Euros!!!
Building a Kubernetes cloud using Raspberry PI 4.
The RPI4/4G offers enough memory and cpu to build an educative Kubernetes cluster.
The presentation will show how to put the pieces togother to get an Apache Tomcat
operator to deploy a small web application in the build RPI4 Kubernetes cloud.

We will show:
- how to build a kernel for RPI4, use it to make a bootable SD card for a RPI4.
- how to configure it to use the WIFI board
- how to prepare Docker images for ARM64
- how to join the Kubernetes master
- how to use weave plugin to get the Kernetes internal network
- how to build and install the operator for Apache Tomcat.

Quarkus: Supersonic Subatomic Java
Java based software development has been a winning proposition for the past 20+ years, however, cloud native application development in the form of microservices and serverless apps are challenging the Java deployment model in terms of memory requirements and start up speed. Quarkus is a Kubernetes native Java stack that can tailor your application for Hotspot & GraalVM providing amazingly fast boot times and incredibly low RSS memory usage, making Java great again in this new Cloud Native Era.

Come to this talk to learn about Quarkus, what it brings to the table and how you can get start started with it.

Post Quantum Cryptography - RSA Is Dead! Long Live BB84!
Quantum computers are real and are starting to be used for some interesting applications. As well as many applications in finance, organic chemistry and complex dynamical systems there is an ugly elephant in the room. That elephant is Shor's algorithm.

Given a sufficiently powerful quantum computer, Shor's algorithm can factorise numbers in polynomial time. I have implemented it on a quantum simulator and it has been used on real quantum computers. When quantum computers are powerful enough nearly all the encryption techniques that we currently rely on will be useless.

The time is still far off when RSA will be useless but I will share some compelling reasons why we need to be taking action right now to avoid potential catastrophe in the not too distant future.
