This Week at Skills Matter: 22 – 25 April

Here’s what’s coming up at Skills Matter this week!


The London Java Community return to Skills Matter HQ for a presentation by Arun Gupta, director of RedHat. Arun will discuss RedHat’s open source Java EE 7 compliant application server, Wildfly 8. Come along to learn about its features and how it contains robust implementations like WebSocket and all Java EE 7 technologies.

Also on Tuesday, James Nocentini and Matt Gaunt join this month’s London PhoneGap Meetup, where they will show you how to make a real offline mobileapp and how to optimize and debug your mobile application withDevtools, as well as covering other interesting topics like how PouchDB helped to avoid creating a backend.


Deep Learning London will be joined by Dr. Boumediene Hamzi who will take a closer look at machine learning, learning theory and Artificial Neural Networks. He will be characterizing the frameworks and use Artificial Networks to illustrate the thought process.


Mark Harwood will be joing us for an In The Brain talk, demonstrating scenarios with real-data and examples based around the forth-coming feature of the open source search and analytics platform – ElasticSearch. This demonstration will cover how anomaly detection algorithms can spot credit card fraud and some other rather useful uses. Mark is a software engineer at ElasticSearch and a long-time contributor to Lucene. Prior to joining Elasticsearch Mark was Chief Scientist at BAE Systems Detica, designing search and visualization systems on multi-billion document solutions for analysts in commercial and government clients.

And wrapping up the week, the Limited WIP Society will be concentrating closely on Theory of Constraints and ‘evaporating clouds. Using real-life examples, they will visualise both sides of the conflict and will try to find a better overall solution than just compromise.
