Time to meet our next speaker for Maritime DevCon 2017, Cezar GrzelakCezar has been a part of the New Brunswick high tech community since 2001 and in the tech industry since 1998. He has been involved in several NB startups including iMagicTV, Kinek and Q1Labs to finally make Cvent Canada his current abode. He graduated from Edinburgh University with an Honours Bachelor degree in Electronics and Electrical Engineering and with a Masters in Software Engineering from Abertay. When he’s not working on solving Cvent’s backend challenges or tinkering with TensorFlow he is likely to be found honing his cueing skills.

Cezar, if you were a programming language or technology, which one would you be and why?

Steampunk because like me it’s good looking and retro 😉

What do you like best about Maritime DevCon?

The fact that it exists :). I mean that in the best possible way. The fact that we have an event of this kind in our little tech community is phenomenal.

Why do you feel your session, Integration Patterns in the World of Microservices, would bring value to Maritime DevCon attendees?

I think a lot of medium and large companies are faced with the challenge of bringing together data from very disparate systems that evolved over time or were thrown into the mix via mergers and acquisitions. Many commercial offerings don’t really solve the interesting problems while the issues they do address aren’t terribly interesting.

What is the key take away attendees will get from your session Integration Patterns in the World of Microservices?

Enterprise Integration is NOT yet a solved problem. Ad-hoc and homemade solutions dominate the space while the commercial offerings fall well short of their promises.

Thanks for joining us to present Cezar!
