TNG gave an interview on the topic Digital Transformation
TNG gave talks at several conferences: "JGiven: Pragmatic BDD for Java" at the JavaOne in San Francisco, "Avatar - Telepresence robotics with Nao and Kinect" at the Nao World Congress in Lowell, Massachusetts, "See like a terminator – Augmented Reality with Oculus Rift" at the IoT Conference in Berlin and "Large-Scale Anonymization at Telefonica Germany powered by Apache Flink" at the Berlin Flink Forward 2016.
We also organized the first Software Architecture Munich Meetup event.
Sponsoring and Talks
As in previous years TNG sponsored the Java Forum Stuttgart again in 2016, attended with a large number of people and gave a talk on "Spark vs. Flink". Furthermore, we sponsored the SoCraTes in Soltau and supported the organization of the event.
At the Flink Meetup Munich two of our employees gave a talk on "Flink in Production: Lessons Learned."
Modern Customer Portal for eCommerce provider
Relaunch and migration of an eCommerce shop
We fully integrated an acquired eCommerce store into an existing Hybris shop system, migrating the complete customer account data, including addresses and vouchers. The goal: to allow expansion of the international customer base. The migration was performed without any need for downtime in the target shop, with the fully automated Hybris import running on multiple servers. By migrating the password-encoding algorithm, the migration was also transparent for customers. CMS content and individual icon sprites allow the new integrated shop to be individually branded.
Big Techday and Talks
Our annual conference on science and IT, the Big Techday 9, took place on 3 June 2016 in the Westin Grand with over 30 lectures.
TNG employees were present at the TechTalents Meetup with the talk "See like a Terminator – Augmented Reality with Oculus Rift". One of our partners gave a talk "Agile Documentation – interactive and useful" at the Munich group of the German Informatics Society.
Our hardware hacking team took the talk "See like a Terminator - Augmented Reality with the Oculus Rift" to the JavaLand conference and JavaLand Nighthacking at Phantasialand in Brühl, the CeBIT Developer World in Hannover (including an interview with Sascha Pallenberg in the CeBIT Techlounge), Virtual Reality With the Best, Munich's Nerd Nite and the IoT Tech Day 2016 in Utrecht.
One of our employees held a lecture on the topic "Asynchronous Programming with RxJava" at the Munich Java User Group. Another colleague gave a talk "i3 - Efficient Workflow on the UNIX Desktop with a Tiling Window Manager" at the Augsburg Linux User Group. Two employees contributed to the Munich Hadoop & Spark User Group with their lecture "Spark v. Flink".
B2B online shop relaunch
We completely rebuilt the online shop for a restaurant supplies wholesaler on the basis of the Hybris Commerce Accelerator, migrating existing data from the old system. This both eradicated technical debt and laid the foundations for a significant increase in non-food products. We supported this extension by adapting the various backend systems to the requirements of a very heterogeneous product range. The new online shop features completely reworked user experience with responsive design and navigation optimized for the product range, as well as improved maintenance of editorial content.
SW360 and FOSSology
SW360 is a software component catalogue application developed by TNG. Recently, we updated SW360 to Java8 and newer versions of Tomcat, Liferay, Thrift and others. We made code and deployment ready for publication on github and developed new features.
Also the open source license scanner FOSSology has been further improved. For parts of it, we cooperated with the Linux Foundation.
Modern Routing for Legacy PHP Application
We replaced the existing static routing in a PHP customer portal for a telecommunications company. The new implementation uses a URL-based routing layer based on the Symfony framework. This enables our customer to define meaningful URLs, simplifying end customers' experience and further optimizing pages for search engines.
