 David Beazley - Lambda Calculus from the Ground Up - PyCon 2019

These days, programming style guides are all the rage. However, what if your style guide was so restrictive that it only gave you single-argument functions and nothing else? No modules, no classes, no control flow, no data structures, and not even any primitives like integers or regular expressions. Just functions. Could you actually program anything at all? Surprisingly, the answer is yes. In this tutorial, you'll learn how as you work through a ground-up derivation of the lambda calculus in Python. You will learn nothing practically useful in this tutorial. No packaging. No tools. No libraries. No deployment. No magic Python programming techniques. And certainly learn nothing you would ever want to apply to a real project. You will, on the other hand, have a lot of fun, be completely amazed, and learn some foundational computer science that is a jumping off point for further explorations of functional programming, type theory, programming languages, and more.

 PyCon Ireland 2019 - Unit & Integration Testing

Testing is an important part of the software development life cycle, however we don't always stress the importance of it. There are dozens of different types of testing and each one has its own purpose. In order to clarify/revisit two of the more common testing types used by developers, here are some concept definitions and best practices around them.

 Hacking Society

Bruce Schneier, Security Technologist, Researcher and Lecturer, Harvard Kennedy School A computer security mindset is essential to understanding the security of complex technological systems. As we move into a world where all social, economic and political systems are to some extent technological, we need to extend this way of thinking. Come learn how to hack—and then defend—society’s core systems: elections, the market economy, lawmaking, tax policy, journalism and more.

 Kent Beck - 3X Explore/Expand/Extract

Before you can evaluate a method, you have to understand its goals. Before you can evaluate a style of software engineering, you have to understand its goals. Quick execution of experiments? Rapid scaling in the face of unexpected bottlenecks? Sustained, profitable growth? Each goals requires a different style and yet we talk about software engineering as if it should be one thing. This talk introduces 3X and the ways software development, quality assurance, design, management, financing, planning, and staffing change depending on the goal of development. Consistently challenges software engineering dogma, promoting ideas like patterns, test-driven development, and Extreme Programming. Currently affiliated with Three Rivers Institute and Agitar Software, he is the author of many Addison-Wesley titles.

 YOW! Perth 2019 - Gregor Hohpe - Architects live in the first derivative

No organization ever complained that their IT department was delivering too fast. However, as technologies evolve ever more quickly and product cycle times keep shorting, it’s difficult for any development team or IT organization to be fast enough. As these organizations try many things to move faster, from adopting Lean and Devops approaches, moving to the cloud, to working weekends or paying bigger bonuses. Slowly many of them realize that increasing velocity is about more than just moving a bit faster. It takes a fundamentally different mindset – one that looks at the first derivative. This talk takes a fresh look why moving faster isn’t just about speeding things up and dissects both systems and organizational architectures that are built for economies of speed. Gregor is a recognized thought leader on asynchronous messaging and service-oriented architectures. He is widely known as co-author of the seminal book “Enterprise Integration Patterns” and as frequent speaker at conferences around the world. He is an active member of the IEEE Software editorial advisory board. He has documented his experience as an architect driving IT transformation in the eBook "37 Things One Architect Knows".

 The Josephus Problem - Numberphile

In computer science and mathematics, the Josephus problem is a theoretical problem related to a certain counting-out game. People are standing in a circle waiting to be executed. Counting begins at a specified point in the circle and proceeds around the circle in a specified direction.
