It all started in 2014, organising the first Devoxx4Kids Ticino with 60 kids.

It was so much fun that we decided to repeat the experience for professional developers. From our passion to speak about development, and our goal to create an independent and community driven event, we created Voxxed Days Ticino in 2015. In 2016, we had another Voxxed Days Ticino and a new event, Voxxed Days Zürich.

Our community deserve so much, and in 2017 we had 3 events in Switzerland. Thanks to our friends at CERN, we were invited to expand Voxxed Days Zürich to a 2-day conference: Thursday in Zürich, and on Saturday we had a great second day inside the inspiring CERN facilities.

In 2018 we will be back with the 3rd edition of Voxxed Days Zürich, and of course Ticino too! We hope to see you very soon!

Ionic All In One Workshop

Got to workshop details

The aim of this workshop is to teach attendees how to take advantage of the Ionic Framework and the Ionic Cloud tools to developer multiple Ionic applications.

Over the course of this workshop, the attendees will gain a great understanding of Ionic and its capabilities. There will also be a section that focuses on the Ionic Pro (Formerly Ionic Cloud) tools.

The latest flavour of Ionic, version 3x is the version that will be the basis of this workshop. Briefing on version 4.0 is also part of this course as it will make you aware of what to expect and ensure you are prepared for future-proof changes.

vavr.io – Functional Java 8+

Go to workshop details

Functional Programming is much more than writing Lambda Expressions – it’s a completely new way of thinking.
In this workshop, we’ll learn how to supercharge our everyday Java programming experience by utilizing Functional Programming idioms. We’ll discover Lambda Expressions and various practices that will help making our code more readable, predictable and less error-prone.
We’ll start by discovering Java’s native Functional Programming support and then gradually work our way up towards essential Functional Programming concepts and advanced solutions found in the Vavr library – making a gentle paradigm shift.

Hibernate Performance Tuning

Go to workshop details

Persisting data with JPA and Hibernate as its most popular implementation is so easy that you can learn it within a few hours. But the troubles begin, as soon as the application needs to support a huge amount of data or you have to guarantee very short response times.

You can fulfill these requirements with advanced JPA features and on top of that, Hibernate offers several proprietary features to support further optimizations.

Some examples are selecting the right fetch strategy, using different caches and performing bulk operations. But using them efficiently requires far more knowledge.
