    • Title: (CANCELLED) Getting Started with FPGAs and HDLs
    • Track: Cooking
    • Room: Burnside
    • Time: 1:302:15pm
    • Excerpt:

      Lots of attention has been given to GPUs for speeding up certain types of computations. While GPUs are very well suited for vector operations, there are other things they are not so well suited for. FPGAs (Field Programmable Gate Arrays) are not used as widely yet, but they offer a much more flexible computing fabric than GPUs. You can implement a GPU in an FPGA, for example, or you could implement your own custom processor optimized for very specialized tasks. The barrier to entry can be high for FPGAs: how does a person with a software development background get started using them? And what about HDLs (Hardware Description Langauges) used to program FPGAs? What’s the difference between simulation and synthesis? What kinds of tools are freely available? These are some of the questions that will be addressed in this session.

    • Speakers: <a href="/users/521">Phil Tomson</a>
    • Title: HyperCard 2010: Why Johnny Can't Code (and What We Can Do About It)
    • Track: Culture
    • Room: Fremont
    • Time: 1:302:15pm
    • Excerpt:

      Thomas Jefferson envisioned a nation of self-sufficient citizen farmers; programmers like Alan Kay and Bill Atkinson tried to help us code as easily as we might hang a poster on the wall. What happened to the HyperCard ideal? Have we settled for consumption over creation? I will explore the question through a case study, surveying the state of citizen programming in 2010 — from CouchApps to Shoes to plain-jane HTML5+JS to HyperCard 2.4 — and try to convince all comers that realizing the dream of the citizen coder is vital to continuing the ideals of open source.

    • Time: 1:302:15pm
    • Excerpt:

      It may seem obvious to some, but the socialist imagery that Mozilla uses isn’t accidental. Nor is the grounding of Activity Streams in socialist theory. What do these things have to do with open source an its future? A lot, and I’ll paint a picture to tell you how it should play out.

    • Title: Fixing SSL security: Supplementing the certificate authority model
    • Track: Hacks
    • Room: Steel
    • Time: 1:302:15pm
    • Excerpt:

      The most common way of using SSL/TLS encryption relies on a public-key infrastructure that puts near-absolute trust in a large number of entities around the world, any one of which could accidentally or deliberately empower anyone to impersonate any site or service and spy on all of our communications. We’ve seen that these certificate authorities can make mistakes. We need new mechanisms to meaningfully double-check that they’re doing the right thing.

      Industry efforts to architect next generation databases that can scale massively by pairing open source databases and content management technologies with cloud-computing are underway. The door is also “opening” to a whole new world of user benefits which will be made possible by access to data — cross-cloud — in non-proprietary databases and content management systems.

    • Title: HipHop for PHP
    • Track: Chemistry
    • Room: Burnside
    • Time: 2:303:15pm
    • Excerpt:

      HipHop transforms PHP source code into highly optimised C++ and then compiles it using g++. It allows developers to continue writing complex logical directly with PHP but leverages the speed benefits of using C++. Currently, HipHop powers the majority of Facebook servers, making this more than just a theoretical exercise.

      This session will cover how HipHop works, how to setup HipHop and the small changes that may be required to applications to allow it to work with both PHP and HipHop.
