    • Track: Chemistry
    • Room: B202/203
    • Time: 10:0011:45am
    • Excerpt:

      At one point it was popular to refer to the eyes as windows to the soul, and common wisdom accepted that you could learn a great deal about a person’s inner thoughts by looking at their eyes. Then that notion fell out of fashion, except perhaps in love songs. But once we learned how to track people’s eye motions, record them, and analyse the data, we realized that there may have been something to it.

    • Title: Understand "Inform 7" as Teh Awesome.
    • Track: Chemistry
    • Room: B204
    • Time: 10:0011:45am
    • Excerpt:

      Y’know those “Interactive Fiction” (IF) text-adventure thingies? Inform 7 is a language for writing IF in the style of English prose. It’s also a neat idea for general modeling. Let’s build a simple world together while learning some of what Inform 7 is about.

    • Title: Toward an Open Source Process for Security Vulnerabilities
    • Track: Business
    • Room: B301
    • Time: 10:0011:45am
    • Excerpt:

      Security vulnerabilities can be a source of anxiety and lost sleep, or they can be a carefully managed opportunity to bring communities together, practice safe operational practices, and prevent problems. Join me to discuss how we can all manage our security issues sanely and cooperatively, and lose less sleep!

    • Title: Let's Make an IRC Bot
    • Track: Chemistry
    • Room: B302/303
    • Time: 10:0011:45am
    • Excerpt:

      Let’s make an IRC bot together. A room of people will either come together, or break up into teams to create an IRC bot within the context of a session. What the bot will do, is up to the people in the room. The outcome is different every time, but it will surely teach us something about technology, and human nature.

    • Track: Cooking
    • Room: B201
    • Time: 4:455:30pm
    • Excerpt:

      Get ready for a whirlwind tour of the current Clojure ecosystem of web app technologies. This talk will demonstrate how fast, responsive apps can be built on this up-and-coming functional language, which is based on Lisp and runs on the JVM.

    • Speakers: Scott Becker
    • Title: Easy Beats Open: The Challenge of Growing Open Source
    • Track: Culture
    • Room: B204
    • Time: 4:455:30pm
    • Excerpt:

      “Open Source, in its majestic equality, guarantees both programmers and non-programmers alike the right to alter and recompile their software.”

      The battle for Open Source Legitimacy is largely over: in many sectors, it’s actually the preferred alternative. In the task-focused world that most casual computer users inhabit, however, “open-ness” is a meaningless abstraction and the walled gardens of closed source competitors offer compelling advantages.

      In this session, I’ll explore the reasons that people make their choices, point out why “moral arguments” about open source are unlikely to change those choices, and discuss ways that our communities can further the ideals of Open Source without demonizing Grandpa’s iPad.

    • Speakers: Jeff Eaton
    • Title: Web Actions: A New Building Block for the Web
    • Track: Chemistry
    • Room: B302/303
    • Time: 4:455:30pm
    • Excerpt:

      A web action is the user experience, code, and service for taking a specific discrete action, across the web, from one site to another site or application. You’ve all seen the buttons: Share, Read later, Follow, Like, Favorite, etc.

      More than any one social site or service, web actions are the emergence of a whole new hypermedia building block.

      This talk will give an overview of the anatomy of a web action, discuss web action user flow, and highlight best practices for both publishers and service providers.
