    • Title: Morning Keynote: Ashe Dryden
    • Track: Culture
    • Room: Sanctuary
    • Time: 9:009:45am
    • Excerpt:

      It’s been scientifically proven that more diverse communities and workplaces create better products and the solutions to difficult problems are more complete and diverse themselves. Companies are struggling to find adequate talent. So why do we see so few women, people of color, and LGBTQ people at our events and on the about pages of our websites? Even more curiously, why do 60% of women leave the tech industry within 10 years? Why are fewer women choosing to pursue computer science and related degrees than ever before? Why have stories of active discouragement, dismissal, harassment, or worse become regular news?

    • Excerpt:

      As technical professionals we excel at understanding protocols, standards, file-formats, and APIs. Whenever there is a doubt as to the correct way to do things, one merely needs to read the fine manual or source code.

      Unfortunately the reference manual for humans was lost a long time ago, and the source code is poorly documented. We’ve been struggling with inter-human communication ever since.

      Paul Fenwick will present his findings at reverse-engineering the human communication protocol.

    • Excerpt:

      Open source software engineering and user interface design got off on the wrong foot. Sadly it’s holding our projects back from reaching their full potential. Let’s talk about how we can bring these seemingly incompatible disciplines together in perfect harmony by simply learning each other’s craft, and how to get started doing so. Whether you are an engineer or a designer you will learn where to get started and how to have fun doing it.

    • Track: Cooking
    • Room: B302/303
    • Time: 3:454:30pm
    • Excerpt:

      Search-first writing makes you think about the structure of your document and product as a series of topics, instead of a big book. The days of linear documentation are over, or at least numbered. Users are much more likely to come to documentation through searches.

      As an open source creator, you may not have a writer to help you out with this, so how can you maximize their return on your minimal investment?

    • Title: Quick Cure for the Shame of Untested Software
    • Track: Cooking
    • Room: B301
    • Time: 4:455:30pm
    • Excerpt:

      As the founder of a company focused on software testing, I speak often to developers who admit in private: “Yes, testing is important… but we don’t test.” Reasons vary, but the basic problem is that testing is seen as too difficult and time-consuming with no apparent value for the effort. In this talk I hope to convince you that this problem is a false dilemma and show you how to get started testing software quickly and easily.

    • Speakers: Daniel Nichter
    • Title: The Care and Feeding of Volunteers: Lessons from Non-Profits and OSS

    • Time: 4:455:30pm
    • Excerpt:

      Volunteers are the lifeblood of OSS projects. From behemoths like the Linux Foundation to every little project on SourceForge, volunteers keep things moving forward. Retaining happy and motivated volunteers is a crucial step in creating a healthy organization. In this talk, I will discuss the whys and wherefors of encouraging and directing your volunteers in the context of both traditional non-profits and OSS projects.

    • Title: Where "Small is Beautiful" meets "Big Data"- Empowering Local Communities with Open Hardware
    • Track: Culture
    • Room: B304
    • Time: 4:455:30pm
    • Excerpt: “The future is already here — it’s just not very evenly distributed”

      - Author William Gibson

      Whether rightly or wrongly so, it has been argued that the "information revolution’ has resulted in a wider gap between those with skills and access to digital resources and those who do not. The same can apply to entire communities where language, geography and cultural barriers have created a new world of “Have Nots”. The growing civic hacker movement is making long strides towards eliminating the “silicon ceiling” effect, but thanks to the emerging practice of “open hardware” the “civic hacker” is joined by a new class known as the “maker”… The civic hacker is capable of great things, and already has enough of a track record to be proud of. But the hacker ultimately is, and should remain, part of a vanguard elite who like the Bletchley Park codebreakers of WWII possess skills of such value that the work of a single individual can have a direct impact on the outcome of a war (or election…) The “Maker” on the other hand represents a fundamental break from a passive society of consumers into something more closely resembling the small-scale producers and artisans on which the U.S was based on.
