Speakers So Far
KENNY BASTINI, Author of Cloud Native Java: Designing Resilient Systems with Spring boot, Spring cloud & Cloud foundryKenny Bastani has over 15 years of experience building software and has spent much of the last decade as an open source contributor, author, and international conference speaker. In 2013, Kenny began pioneering work in the graph processing space, integrating the first graph database, Neo4j, with the first distributed graph processing engine, Apache Spark GraphX, via an open source project he launched in 2014 named Neo4j Mazerunner. In 2015, Kenny presented Big Graph Analytics on Neo4j with Apache Spark at O’Reilly’s annual OSCON open source convention. His advocacy for graph processing and graph analytics acted as the inspiration for the Neo4j Graph Algorithms Library that was later launched in 2017. In 2015, Kenny joined Pivotal as a Spring Developer Advocate, and later as the Application Architecture CTO. While at Pivotal, Kenny did pioneering work as an advocate of microservices and cloud native architectures implemented in Spring Boot and Spring Cloud. Since then, Kenny has written several open source projects and blog posts that provide realistic implementation examples that show how to adopt microservices at different stages of software development. From 2015 to 2019, Spring Boot has become one of the most popular open source projects for implementing microservices on the JVM, with tens of millions of monthly downloads. Kenny is the co-author of O’Reilly’s "Cloud Native Java: Designing Resilient Systems with Spring Boot, Spring Cloud, and Cloud Foundry".

We will ROCK IT!
You & your team are a massive part of the IT World now: by putting your experience and diverse skills, together you are creating a hit-record during these uncertain times!
This fall we are eager to show you that the Software world is like a Rock concert: you have a stage where you put all your knowledge, tune your electric guitar, bass, a drum kit, and finally, you check your sound and perform!
Sometimes the lights, as the bugs in your code, blinds you, but this is a small kick between you and your main goal — to rock it!
Build Stuff is a Software Development Conference created for back-end & full-stack developers, academics, team leads, software architects, product owners, technical project managers.
The goal of the conference is to boost the developer community by providing tomorrow’s knowledge and train the skills required to keep up with continuous change. Build Stuff invites to listen to sessions, discuss trends, try new things, and, most importantly, share personal experiences with a wide range of technologies with other developers.
