Martin Odersky, "Working Hard to Keep It Simple" - OSCON Java 2011
Today's world of parallel and distributed computing poses hard new challenges for software development. A rapidly increasing number of developers now have to deal with races, deadlocks, non-determinism, and we are ill-equipped to do so. How can we keep things simple, in spite of the complexity of the underlying runtimes? In my keynote I present some of the core technology that was developed in Scala to deal with the parallelism challenge: Parallel collections, actors, and parallel domain-specific languages. They have in common that each involves a sophisticated implementation, yet provides a simple, intuitive toolkit to the developer. About Martin Odersky (Typesafe): Martin Odersky is the inventor of the Scala language, a professor at EPFL in Lausanne, Switzerland, and Chairman and Chief Architect of Typesafe. His work concentrates on the fusion of functional and object-oriented programming. He believes the two paradigms are two sides of the same coin, to be unified as much as possible. To prove this, he has worked on a number of language designs, from Pizza to GJ to Functional Nets. He has also influenced the development of Java as a co-designer of Java generics and as the original author of the current javac reference compiler. Don't miss an upload!

OSCON 2011:  Paul Fenwick, "All Your Brains Suck - Known Bugs And Exploits In Wetware"
Humans. As a species, we suck. The only real evolutionary advantage we have is our brains, and by using them we've become the dominant species on the planet. Our brains are superbly adapted for our survival and success in the environment in which they evolved... the African savanna 200,000 years ago. Our brains are not-at-all suited for modern life, and are plagued by a raft of bugs and unwanted features that we've been unable to remove. Join us in a tour of some of the most amusing bugs and exploits wetware has to offer. Paul Fenwick Perl Training Australia Paul Fenwick is the managing director of Perl Training Australia, and has been teaching computer science for over a decade. He is an internationally acclaimed presenter at conferences and user-groups worldwide, where he is well-known for his humour and off-beat topics. In his spare time, Paul's interests include security, mycology, cycling, coffee, scuba diving, and lexically scoped user pragmata.

Where 2.0 2011, Genevieve Bell, "Context is Everything"
Answering the question, "where are you," seems perfectly straightforward. It on the surface a question about location. However, location is not a straightforward as: I am here. Many of us own digital devices, services and applications that tell us where we are and where we should be going, or tell others where we say we are, or at least where might wish we were. In a world of GPS, 4-square, facebook places, checking in and google maps, how do we think about where we are? In this talk, Genevieve uses a series of ethnographic moments to challenge our notions of location, direction, and place to suggest some other ways of making sense of where we might be. Genevieve Bell Intel Corporation Dr. Genevieve Bell is an Australian-born anthropologist and researcher. As director of User Interaction and Experience in Intel Labs, Bell leads a research team of social scientists, interaction designers, human factors engineers and computer scientists. This team shapes and helps create new Intel technologies and products that are increasingly designed around people's needs and desires. In this team and her prior roles, Bell has fundamentally altered the way Intel envisions and plans its future products so that they are centered on people's needs rather than simply silicon capabilities. In addition to leading this increasingly important area of research at Intel, Bell is an accomplished industry pundit on the intersection of culture and technology. She is a regular public speaker and panelist at technology conferences worldwide, sharing myriad insights gained from her extensive international field work and research. Her first book, 'Divining the Digital Future: Mess and Mythology in Ubiquitous Computing,' was co-written with Prof. Paul Dourish of the University of California at Irvine and released in April 2011. In 2010, Bell was named one of Fast Company's inaugural '100 Most Creative People in Business.' She also is the recipient of several patents for consumer electronics innovations. Moving to the United States for her undergraduate studies, she graduated from Bryn Mawr in 1990 with a bachelor's degree in anthropology. She then attended Stanford University, earning her master's degree (1993) and a doctorate (1998) in cultural anthropology, as well as acting as a lecturer in the Department of Anthropology from 1996-1998. With a father who was an engineer and a mother who was an anthropologist, perhaps Bell was fated to ultimately work for a technology company, joining Intel in 1998.

Where 2.0 2011, Jack Dangermond, "Living Maps -- Making Collective Geographic Information a Reality"
With the pervasiveness of mobile technology and greater opportunities for crowd sourcing, it has become possible to integrate everything that moves on the planet into a geospatial framework. Using the web infrastructure, we can pull real-time observational information into our maps and distribute them with other data and services which can be openly discovered and made available to anyone for application development. These distributed maps become living maps that can be accessed anywhere, from any device. You can sketch on top of your living map, share it back to a server, and make it available to anyone so that they, in turn, can sketch on top of it. This allows us to move to the idea of collective geographic information. Jack Dangermond Esri Jack Dangermond is the founder and president of Esri. Founded in 1969 and headquartered in Redlands, California, Esri is widely recognized as the technical and market leader in geographic information system (GIS) software, pioneering innovative solutions for working with spatial data on the desktop, across the enterprise, in the field, and on the Web. Esri has the largest GIS software install base in the world with more than one million users in more than 300,000 organizations worldwide. Dangermond fostered the growth of Esri from a small research group to an organization of over 2,900 employees, known internationally for GIS software development, training, and services. Dangermond holds ten honorary doctorates from California Polytechnic University-Pomona, State University of New York at Buffalo, Technical University for Civil Engineering of Bucharest -- Romania, University of West Hungary, City University in London, University of Redlands in California, Ferris State University in Michigan, Loma Linda University, University of Arizona, and University of Minnesota.

There's Only One Test
Can I use a t-test if my data are non-normal? What if the sample size is small? What's an exact test? And how many tests are there, anyway? People working with real data are often confused about hypothesis testing and paralyzed by the number of tests and their requirements. But for many common problems, you don't need specialized tests at all. In this talk, I present a framework for using simple simulations to estimate p-values. This framework works well for a wide range of problems, which is why I say that there's only one test. You don't need prior knowledge of statistics (and you might be better off without it). I show programming examples in Python, but the talk is accessible to anyone with basic programming skills. About Allen B. Downey: Allen B. Downey, author of Think Stats.
