VSR at Developer Week 2024

VSR at Developer Week 2024

Our team member Tobias Münch participated in the industry event Developer Week 2024 (DWX) in Nürnberg. He presented the pros and cons of asynchronous communication patterns when creating web applications such as long polling, Server-Sent Events, and Web Sockets. He aimed to empower the audience to choose the correct pattern in each situation. Therefore, he transferred some of his practical and academic work about the web to industry, which took place as a knowledge transfer from science to industry. The speakers and attendees discussed various aspects of creating valuable software in productive environments at the conference. Some topics covered were .net MAUI, the usage of generative AI, various web frameworks such as React and Angular, team dynamics, and entrepreneurship. The keynote from Prof. Dr. Alexander Pretschnet from TU Munich addresses how generative AI will influence the work of software engineers. It was insightful and raised several new questions about the work of web engineers. read more
