Breaking The Monotony Breaking The Monotony Presentation Transcript

  • Breaking The Monotony @sai_venkat & @harikrishnan83
  • Or
  • Theme The Agility we seek is from the code we write and systems we build and not just from processes and practices we follow.
  • Why this talk? ● As Craftsmen we are on look out for right tool for the job and sharing our experiences with you. ● This talk is based on the experiences we have on our day to day projects – The choice we make when we build the application can bring us agility. ● We have chosen to concentrate on these areas because in any decent sized (Enterprise :P) project these problems are common.
  • Introspection
  • Modeling time ● Aim – To build the world's largest resume builder. ● We choose you as the architect (or funky name – Master Craftsman) to create a model of a profile builder. ● Tell us what you need (tools, frameworks) and your model. ● Catch – We don't want to restrict the resumes coming in from public in any way. We want the users to give as much information about them as possible

  • Same Data Modeled as Documents { { Name: “Closseau”, Name: “Mr Magoo”, title: “Inspector turned developer”, title: “Funny developer”, Skills: [“Ruby”, “Haskell”, “C#”], Skills: [“Ruby”, “Self”, “Clojure”], Telephone_Numbers: [9611805466], Email-id: “magoo@looneytoons.com”, Experience: 5 Experience: 4 } } Querying the Data: Map function: function(doc) { if (contains(doc.skills, [“java”, “clojure”])) { emit(null, doc); } }
  • A Case for Non Relational Databases ● Schema less Data helps us to evolve the model over the course of application development and maintenance (Ex. FriendFeed, github, Sourceforge) ● Scaling out is easy in nosql databases. Throw in more commodity machine. ● You may not always need atomic consistency (Dirty interface of mnesia) ● Most nosql Databases are simpler than conventional RDBMS, hence more robust and lightweight ● SQL Engines are only a convenience If they are not helping don't have to use them (Waffle on Mysql Datastore)
  • Polyglot & PolyParadigm Programming ● Today's Applications Need to ● Must scale ● Must be resilient and secure ● Must evolve for future ● Work with large volumes of data and users.
  • Hope you don't have someone like this in your team - I work only with Java.....
  • Polyglot & PolyParadigm Programming ● Are there any advantages to writing an entire application in one language or one stack (Microsoft shop or Java shop anyone)? ● Is one language best for all domains? ● Are we harnessing the power we have in our hardware? ● Languages have their boundaries – Imperative vs Functional, Static vs Dynamic, Procedural vs Object Oriented ● Advantages are mostly relative and context sensitive. ● Examples: Flightcaster, Facebook Chat, github - BERT, Runa – Swarmiji, Twitter ● No Language Wars please :)
  • In Erlang In Java -module (fact). -export ([fact/1]). public int fact(int value) { fact(0) -> 1; if (value == 0) fact(N) -> N * fact(N -1). { return 0; } else Tail Recursion Optimized { return value * fact(value - 1); -module (fact). } -export ([fact/1]). } fact(N) -> fact(N, 1). fact(0, A) -> A; fact(N, A) -> fact(N -1, N * A).
  • Polyglotism in Testing We would use Java or C# to write functional tests as our application code is in that language require “watir” package org.openqa.selenium.example; browser = Watir::Browser.new(:firefox) import org.openqa.selenium.By; browser.goto “http://www.google.com” import org.openqa.selenium.WebDriver; browser.text_field(:name, “q”).set “Cheese” import org.openqa.selenium.WebElement; browser.button(:name, “btnG”).click import org.openqa.selenium.htmlunit.HtmlUnitDriver; puts “Page title is #{browser.title}” public class Example  {     public static void main(String[] args) {         WebDriver driver = new HtmlUnitDriver();         driver.get("http://www.google.com");         WebElement element = driver.findElement(By.name("q"));         element.sendKeys("Cheese!");         element.submit();         System.out.println("Page title is: " + driver.getTitle());     } }
  • Polyglotism in Testing Using Cucumber + Jruby or Groovy for acceptance testing of services and API interfaces in Java. Feature: Proposal notification In order to reduce time spent on emailing Administrators should be able to mail all proposals owners depending on status Scenario: Email accepted proposal Given hari@gmail.com proposed 'Breaking the Monotony' And the 'Breaking the Monotony' proposal is approved When I send mass proposal email Then hari@gmail.com should get email """ Hi hari@gmail.com Congratulations, 'Breaking the Monotony' was accepted. See you at 'Agile India 2010'! """

  • Build and Deployment ● Build script or Build code? ● 9000 lines of XML Code and still no test? ● We really need a first class language for flexibility ● Programming in XML doesn't make sense ● Pure declarative model solves some problems but reduces flexibility ● Testing is much simpler with a real language ● Use Ruby or Groovy for build (Example: FubuMVC in Rake) and Capistrano for deployment. ● Continuous Deployment. ● Cloud for deployment.
