Coderbunker is a software focussed hackerspace in Shanghai providing a community
for programmers to foster their software development skills, interact, share and
together raise the bar for software engineering excellence in China.
Coderbunker is hosting regular meetups which include their techtalk series, which will feature Nexedi on
Saturday, August 20th, 11:00am (meetup).
Jean-Paul Smets, the CEO of Nexedi will introduce the company and how it's possible
to run a prospering business developing free software. He will show many of the
companies free software solutions being used on a day-to-day basis at Nexedi and
walk through the setup of an Application Delivery Network via Nexedi's
The talk will concentrate around the great engineering challenges at Nexedi, their
design choices, their technology stack, development philosophy, tools they use and
development methodology with a particular focus on today's and medium term
The purpose of the talk is to let the co-learner gain insights in a real
development environment. This will hopefully guide building their profile with
skillsets useful to successful engineering teams in China.
The talk from the speaker will be for software developers and aspiring developers.
We've specifically asked the speaker to not have a slidedeck and answer questions
about his engineering team using actual code examples and infrastructure details.
Audience is warned that they might expect to see some warts and imperfections
as we look behind the curtain of a real engineering team.
The techtalk will be structured similar to the journey across a typical working
day of Nexedian engineer covering the tools used on a day-to-day basis.
The second part of the techtalk will focus on doing some hands-on work with
The idea is to install a resilient IPv6 connection to a GNU/Linux server and access
it through an IPv4 reverse proxy.
