    • Excerpt:

      So often we’re solely focused on the performance of our production systems.

    • Track: Cooking
    • Room: B301
    • 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.

      If you can’t reproduce your work reliably then you can’t maintain it. You may get by for a while with ad-hoc build/release/deployment processes, but sooner or later they’ll bite you. We’ll present a new practical approach to assembling both software products and installed systems, drawing inspiration from sources including the functional programming community, commercial software projects, large IT deployments, and Linux distributions like Debian.

    • Track: Cooking
    • Room: B302/03
    • Time: 1:302:15pm
    • Excerpt:

      Technical debt is something that most project teams or independent developers have to deal with – we take shortcuts to push out releases, deadlines need to be met, quick fixes slowly become the standard. In this talk, we will discuss what technical debt is, when it is acceptable and when it isn’t, and strategies for effectively managing it, both on an independent and team level.

    • Title: Put THAT in Your Pipe and Deploy It!
    • Track: Cooking
    • Room: B304
    • Time: 1:302:15pm
    • Excerpt:

      A deployment pipeline combines several development best practices, fully automated and taken to their logical extreme. The result is almost magical: changesets go in one end, and fully-tested software packages come out the other. We’ll take a tour of the components of a deployment pipeline, with concrete examples showing how to use Hudson, Rake, and Puppet to deploy PHP projects.

    • Track: BOF
    • Room: B201
    • Time: 8:3010:00pm
    • Excerpt:

      CASSIS is universal JavaScript (JS) that works on the client and the server for scalable application logic. Developed as an immediate to near-term solution until typical web hosting companies make it easy to run JS on the server (e.g. Node.js), CASSIS is a fast functional open source JS-subset and framework you can use today to implement application logic once and have it run both dynamically in browsers with JS, and on the server for when JS is not supported (search engines), is disabled (security), or slow (mobile).
