Small intro to Big Data
Talk by Michał Matłoka in Mont-Royal (45 minutes)

Big Data is everywhere and new tools for it are released almost at the speed of new JavaScript frameworks. During this entry level presentation I will walk though the challenges which Big Data presents, reflect how big is big and introduce currently most fancy and popular (mostly open source) tools. I'll try to spark off interest in Big Data by showing application areas and by throwing ideas where you can later dive into.

How I learned to stop worrying and love Regular Expressions
Talk by Jordi Boggiano in Fontaine C (45 minutes)

This session will cover Regular Expressions from the basics to the darkest corners of this arcane art. Regular Expressions at the core come in handy to achieve validation and text manipulation tasks. In the day to day life of a developer, becoming comfortable with them opens up many more use cases. As one of the tortured souls that actually enjoys regexes, Jordi will share his passion so that you too can see there is no reason to worry.

Extracting data from the Internet with Scrapy
Talk by Israël Hallé in Fontaine E (45 minutes)

While exposing data to developers through API is getting more typical, most of the data found on the internet is only available through raw HTML, often mixed in seemingly chaotic tags. This talk aims to be a quick introduction for the data scientist to politely extract data from a website and store it in a structured database with the help of the Python library Scrapy, and how one might extend it to fits their specific needs.

Database schema migrations with zero downtime

Then you probably know these database migrations can lead to downtime and can be an obstacle to implementing continuous delivery. In this talk we’ll discuss non-destructive changes, rollbacks, large data sets, useful tools and a few strategies to migrate our data safely, with minimum disruption to production.

There's more to performance than meets the eye
Talk by Léonie Watson in Mont-Royal (45 minutes)

What does performant look like when you can't see the screen? The browser does more with the DOM than render content. It presents an accessibility tree that's queried using platform accessibility APIs. Different browser processing models mean Assistive Technologies are changing the way they obtain accessibility information, but is that having an impact on performance, and what happens when we introduce a JavaScript accessibility API into the mix?

Gentle introduction to SSL/TLS, certificates, and TLS 1.3
Talk by Christian Heimes in Fontaine C (45 minutes)

TLS is the most important and widely-used protocol for secure and encrypted communication, e.g. HTTPS. It offers more than just encryption. TLS also ensures data integrity and strong authentication with X.509 certificates. Did you ever wonder how TLS and CAs actually work? I'll give you the rundown of the basic cryptographic building blocks, protocol handshake, inner structure of certificates, PKI, and what's new in TLS 1.3.

Designing a DSL with Kotlin
Talk by Nicolas Fränkel in Fontaine E (45 minutes)

Kotlin is one of those “new” JVM languages that are currently rocking the boat. Although it’s made a great impact on Android, it’s equally good on the server side. As Domain-Specific Languages are constrained by the language they run on, Kotlin frees developers from Java fluent builders to propose something better. Using the Vaadin web framework as an example, I’ll demo how one could design its own DSL with Kotlin.

The B-Tree, the biggest problem of Ai?
Talk by Jonathan Duquette in Fontaine E (45 minutes)

For more than 45 years, everyone thought the problem was the processing power. For us, it was clear the problem was the B-Tree because the cost of processing a find operation grows as the logarithm of the file size. This ideology is the opposite of intelligence because while we are growing up, we generate more and more data, but with time, we are not getting slower, in fact, we just become more intelligent!

You're only supposed to blow the bloody doors off!
Talk by Léonie Watson in Fontaine D (45 minutes)

It's often said that JavaScript makes things inaccessible with a screen reader. This is not true. It is possible to do good and bad things with JavaScript (as with any other language, or even dynamite) - but it helps if you understand accessibility mechanics in the browser if you want to avoid blowing things up. Throw a little ARIA into the mix and you can really start to make things explode unintentionally!

The Myth of Culture
Keynote by Ken Coar in Hampstead (25 minutes)

In today's increasingly connected world, the word "culture" appears in communities a lot. Unfortunately, it's not a single-value term. In many cases the founders of a culture are unaware of how their ideals have morphed, and acquired altered or additional definitions. In this talk I intend to describe some of the factors that contribute to this sort of 'fuzzing' of consensual understanding of the term.

We need to be aware of how much power we've been given and start taking responsibility for what we build.

Exploring .NET’s memory management – a trip down memory lane
Talk by Maarten Balliauw in Fontaine F (45 minutes)

The .NET Garbage Collector (GC) is really cool. It helps providing our applications with virtually unlimited memory, so we can focus on writing code instead of manually freeing up memory. But how does .NET manage that memory? What are hidden allocations? Are strings evil? In this talk, we’ll go over the base concepts of .NET memory management and explore how .NET helps us and how we can help .NET – making our apps better.
