Back to School Back to school has never been so exciting!

BRUSSELS – As most students in Europe are about to start a new academic year, the European Students’ Union (ESU) is planning to kick-start its own schedule with a networking event on 2 September 2014. Around 60 participants have registered for the event, including members of the European Parliament and representatives of the European Commission and member states of the European Union.

This event will be held on the ground floor of a fully renovated office building that ESU moved into in July, at Rue l’Industrie 10, as part of the so-called Mundo-J project. ESU was very happy to join this project, hoping to increase its collaboration and cooperation with EU institutions and higher education and youth organisations, some that are neighbouring ESU such as the Organisational Bureau of European School Student Unions (OBESSU), the European Civil Society Platform on Lifelong Learning (EUCIS-LLL), the International Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer Youth and Student Organisation (IGLYO) and the European Association for the Education of Adults (EAEA).

Elisabeth Gehrke, ESU’s Chairperson, will formally welcome guests to the event after which they will be briefly introduced to ESU’s plan of work and the new team that started its political mandate on 1 July. The guests will then be invited to informal discussions on various subjects in higher education where ESU’s previous work in the field will also be presented. This is the first time ESU organises this networking event that has been called Back to School.

ESU is very happy to see how many people have showed interest in the event and looks the meeting at the start of this academic year. Several important issues are on its list of tasks for the upcoming months, such as preparations for the ministerial conference of the European Higher Education Area in the spring, continuing discussions on higher education and the UN development agenda post-2015 as well as ongoing policy processes at the European level such as the ET2020 and EU2020 agendas.

Please see more information about the event on the Facebook page created for this occasion. All who are interested to contributing to the discussions for the event are also encouraged to use the hashtag #ESUback2school on social media.

03:03 on 26 Oct 15 In short, the microservice architectural style is an approach to developing a single application as a suite of small services, each running in its own process and communicating with lightweight mechanisms, often an resource API. These services are built around business capabilities and independently deployable by fully automated deployment machinery. There is a bare minimum of centralized management of these services, which may be written in different programming languages and use different data storage technologies. To start explaining the microservice style it's useful to compare it to the monolithic style: a monolithic application built as a single unit. Enterprise Applications are often built in three main parts: a client-side user interface (consisting of HTML pages and javascript running in a browser on the user's machine) a database (consisting of many tables inserted into a common, and usually relational, database management system), and a server-side application. The server-side application will handle HTTP requests, execute domain logic, retrieve and update data from the database, and select and populate HTML views to be sent to the browser. This server-side application is a monolith - a single logical executable[2]. Any changes to the system involve building and deploying a new version of the server-side application. Such a monolithic server is a natural way to approach building such a system. All your logic for handling a request runs in a single process, allowing you to use the basic features of your language to divide up the application into classes, functions, and namespaces. With some care, you can run and test the application on a developer's laptop, and use a deployment pipeline to ensure that changes are properly tested and deployed into production. You can horizontally scale the monolith by running many instances behind a load-balancer. Monolithic applications can be successful, but increasingly people are feeling frustrations with them - especially as more applications are being deployed to the cloud . Change cycles are tied together - a change made to a small part of the application, requires the entire monolith to be rebuilt and deployed. Over time it's often hard to keep a good modular structure, making it harder to keep changes that ought to only affect one module within that module. Scaling requires scaling of the entire application rather than parts of it that require greater resource.
