Keynote: The Career-Spotter's Field Guide - Nat Torkington

Abstract: There's life beyond the ivy-covered walls of academia. Learn from veteran observer Nat Torkington about startups and BigCos, of IT and ops and dev, of VCs and IPOs, and why open source fails to suck. Many illustrations, hard case, cloth bound, slight foxing. 1st edition.

Tech Talk 1 - Software development in the real world - Microsoft Silverlight Ticketing Kiosk - Chris Klug, Intergen

Abstract: My life as a developer is full of interesting projects. A lot of them are start off with "can you build this awesome application that integrates with that not so awsome other application, make it look good and have it done by the end of the week". Software development doesn't always happen according to the way that it is being taught in school. In my world it is actually more common to have to build something amazing in a very short timeframe, with very little resources and a lot of constraints. Intergen recently gave me an awesome project like this, and I'd like to share some of my experiences with this project to show what my life as a software developer is like and why I love it.


Tech Talk 2 - Scale: Solving the Biggest Problems in Computer Science - Daniel Nadasi, Google

Abstract: The one thing I notice every day at work is the sheer size of it all. Thousands of computers, millions of users, distributed across the whole world. In this talk I'll be giving my perspective as a Software Engineer at Google into these huge problems. Using examples drawn from Google's most ambitious projects, I'll highlight some of the common (and less common) challenges and strategies for dealing with them, as well as the balance between Engineering and Computer Science at this scale.
