If you are like most developers, you are embracing applications built using microservices and a NoSQL database. Creating applications is hard because microservices are often written in different languages, database drivers have a maintenance burden, or familiar HTTP APIs lack the performance needed. Data APIs can simplify application development, but which one is best for your use case? In this session you will learn about industry standard APIs (REST, schemaless JSON, GraphQL, and gRPC) that can be used to interact with a database. Identify what the benefits of these APIs and why gRPC has become the API of choice for connecting microservices.

Is it possible for a computer program to write its own programs? While this kind of idea could seem far-fetched, it may actually be closer than we think. This presentation introduces “AI Programmer”, a machine learning system, which can automatically generate full software programs requiring only minimal human guidance. The system uses genetic algorithms coupled with a tightly constrained programming language. We’ll cover an overview of the system design and see examples of its software-generation capabilities.
