Description Free and open source software has come a long way since their start decades ago. Today it's the default choice for just about every software development project and tech giants like Amazon, Apple, Google, and even Microsoft are using, contributing to, and releasing free and open source software. With its popularity for infrastructure and bootstrapping development, it's tempting to say that free and open source software has won, but it's premature to make that call. While it may have...

Talk Description : As we look at the next horizon for FOSS, we must consider who will take us there. While we have these founders in our midst, we must take the time to do succession planning for free and open source leadership. While sharing of and collaborating on software has been around as long as there's been code, the open source concept and movement only came into being in the late 1990s. There are many who remember a time before open source. Of those, most helped to shape the...

Description Projects fail in droves. Systems hiccup and hours of downtime follows. Screws fall out all the time; the world is an imperfect place. We talk a lot about building resilient systems, but all systems are (at least for now) built by humans. Humans who have been making the same types of mistakes for thousands of years. Just because failure happens doesn’t mean we can’t do our best to prevent it or—at the very least—to minimize the damage when it does. As a matter of fact,...

Description: You know the code and the project. You’re doing lots of cool stuff. You have plenty of slides. So why is everyone in the audience reading their email?  It doesn’t have to be that way. Great presenters are made, not born. The way to become a better speaker is through training, science, and practice. VM Brasseur teaches you the 10 (or so) steps to great tech talks. If you’ve never attended a speaker training before, you’ll see how much better your talks could be. If you...

The lens through which we view--and know--what it means to love, to be ourselves, and to connect with others is now backed by microchips and millions of lines of code. As our lives continue to become increasingly managed by our devices, we need to ask ourselves what we're gaining--and what we're giving up--by allowing technology into the spaces that make our hearts ache and that keep us up at night. This talk will weave together two narratives essential to many people: health and love. It will...

You could just throw the code up on a forge like GitHub or GitLab, but it’s unlikely to receive attention or provide much benefit to the company. Open sourcing an internal project requires a lot of thought and work. Releasing a project as open source requires changes to the development, build, and release workflow.

This includes 6502 assembly games (Tom Bombem, Talbot Fantasy 7) and graphic/Mockingboard demos (VMW Chiptune Player, 8k Mode7 Demo). He also does unlikely things with Applesoft BASIC, such as Uthernet webservers and "ports" of modern games (Portal, Kerbal Space Program).

In 1995 everything changed with the creation of the World Wide Web. Anything that could be digitized was digitized and entire industries changed. And with the digitization came tools to help everyone become a producer of digital content. From music to video, books to journalism, we pulled all the friction out of the content pipeline and democratized entire industries. But the industry we never talk about is the one that was already digital – software. Software was democratized as well....

Un transistor es uno de los dispositivos electrónicos más importantes dado que se encarga de potenciar una señal eléctrica débil, amplificándola. Esto surge de la necesidad de sustituir las válvulas de vacío que tenían problemas de calentamiento. Los transistores además son más pequeños y usan mucha menos energía para funcionar, y dado que tampoco necesitan un disipador muy grande, hace que sean más versátiles y resistentes a fallos.
