Decentralized content registry: expanding IPFS functionality with cosmos based blockchain

We are building a general digital content registry called International Standard Content Number (ISCN) which is using the Cosmos-based blockchain to validate and store the registry itself. However, it is not intuitive and easy to use for users to query the registry directly from the blockchain, and now we are riding on the powerful distributed file system InterPlanetary File System (IPFS) to make some plugins to help to distribute the registries globally decentrally and distributed.

MySQL High Availability Deployment Practice

Data is critical to system. Building a reliability system requires a reliable Database Platform. MySQL High Availability with Replication, InnoDB Cluster / NDB Cluster provides the choice of deployment architectures to achieve different Service level (SLA) expectations. The talk will cover the innovation of Today with MySQL replication capabilities including Network communication, Flow control and Data Consistency. The latest ReplicaSet and InnoDB Cluster will be explored.

Rust and WebAssembly powered Microservices

The Rust programming language is Stackoverflow’s most beloved programming language for the past 4 years. As it's adoption reaches beyond alpha developers writing system software, there is a strong demand for using Rust to write web services and applications.

Originally created by Mozilla, Google, Microsoft, and Apple as the next generation code execution engine web browsers, WebAssembly is the ideal execution engine for running Rust applications on the server side. 

Julia -- Looks like Python, feels like Lisp, runs like C/Fortran

Julia is a fast, dynamic, open source, easy to use programming language, designed to solve the two-language problem. It provides ease in both syntax and speed, and adopts multiple dispatch as its paradigm. In this talk, we will give an overview of the strengths and applications of Julia, as well as cover its basic syntax. Through a short live coding demonstration and text game AI with the Flux.jl package, we will demonstrate Julia's ease of use and comprehensive support for Machine Learning and Scientific Computing.
