Martin Odersky, "Working Hard to Keep It Simple" - OSCON Java 2011
 
16:32
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 Java 2011:  Josh Bloch, "Java: The Good, Bad, and Ugly Parts"
 
14:34
In my technical presentation ("The Evolution of Java: Past, Present, and Future"), I'll be discussing all of the changes to the Java programming language since its inception. In this this keynote, I'll focus my attention on the starting point: I'll present my candidates for the best and worst features in the platform as it was originally released (JDK 1.0), and explain the reasoning behind my choices. Some of my choices may be obvious, but others will likely surprise you. A splendid time is guaranteed for all. Josh Bloch Google Joshua Bloch is a software architect in the Open Source Program Office at Google, author of the bestselling, Jolt Award-winning "Effective Java" (Addison-Wesley, 2001; Second Edition, 2008), and coauthor of "Java Puzzlers: Traps, Pitfalls, and Corner Cases" (Addison-Wesley, 2005) and "Java Conurrency in Practice" (Addison-Wesley, 2006).

Where 2.0 2011, Genevieve Bell, "Context is Everything"
 
16:05
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.

"Twitter: From Ruby on Rails to the JVM" Raffi Krikorian Twitter At Twitter, @raffi leads the Applications Services group, the custodians of Twitter's core logic -- his teams manage, amongst other things, the business logic, scalable delivery, APIs, and authentication of Twitter's application. Previously, he was the lead of the public APIs as well as being the one of those behind Twitter's Geospatial APIs. Before Twitter he used to create technologies to help people frame their personal energy consumption against global energy production (Wattzon -- Business Week's "Best Idea" 2008), and also ran a consulting company building off-the-wall projects. At one point, he used to teach at NYU's ITP (created the class "Every Bit You Make") and spent way too much time as a student at MIT and the MIT Media Lab (Internet 0 -- Scientific American September 2004).

OSCON 2011:  Paul Fenwick, "All Your Brains Suck - Known Bugs And Exploits In Wetware"
 
27:38
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.

Strata Summit 2011:  Sean Gourley, "The New Corporate Intelligence"
 
11:07
Disruptive technology shapes the world, defining political, military, financial, and commercial opportunities and threats. Whether originating in academic research, in National Labs, or in privately held or public companies, these technologies can emerge with explosive impact, creating and destroying value. Yet there are few tools to track these innovations—at a global scale and at a pace that keeps up with the rate of change. What if corporate strategists could literally draw a map to find growth opportunities? A technique called semantic clustering analysis makes this possible. When applied to technology entities worldwide, this analysis can reveal not only which innovation areas are thick with competition, but also where in the market there are opportunities, or "white spaces," ripe for innovation. The result is a data-driven visual tool that can be used to drive corporate innovation strategy. Sean Gourley Quid Sean Gourley, Quid co-founder and CTO, did research into the mathematics of war for his PhD thesis at Balliol College, Oxford. His findings appeared as the featured article in "Nature" (December 2009) and were the subject of a popular TED talk (2009). His work on statistical analysis, probability, and algorithm development applied to complex systems and large datasets inspired the creation of Quid. Sean is a Rhodes Scholar PhD in Physics (Complexity) from the University of Oxford; his is undergraduate degree in Physics is from the University of Canterbury, Christchurch, New Zealand.
