How do you know you've written a good program? There are a couple standards
most people use: "works for me" and "all tests pass". If you can get to that
point, you're code is in pretty good shape!
This talk will go beyond "it works" to explore a programming technique
where problems are systematically made obvious and code
naturally becomes correct, clear, and maintainable!
Location: Portland 255
Audience level: Intermediate
It's widely accepted that learning any new programming language will improve your programming skills in general, but we don't often talk about how. This talk will cover some of the my takeaways after learning Go that have improved my Python and Java skills, as well as cover some bits about why Go is a great choice for those itching to learn a new language.
Server-side browser push technologies have been around for a while in one way or another, ranging from from crude browser polling to Flash enabled frameworks. In this session you'll get a code-driven walk-through on the evolution and mechanics of server-push technologies.
Internationally acclaimed public speaker Paul Fenwick talks
about depression: What it is, why it sucks, and his own personal
experiences in battling it. Drawing from a diverse range of fields,
Paul provides insights into the bugs that may exist in your brain, and
how some aspects of digital society may even make them worse.
Location: Expo Hall (Table 2)
There has been a strong connection between the terms "web" and "online" for years. The rise of HTML5 and the support of offline mode in most modern browsers changed the play of the game. This session will introduce different ways of storing data on the client as well as highlighting the limitations.
Opening remarks by the OSCON program chairs, Sarah Novotny, Matthew McCullough and Edd Dumbill.
Looking back on 30 years of programming: there's nothing new since 1983. Examples and implications.
“Distinction" is the noun for the adjective “Distinguished". The ACM Distinguished Member Recognition Program recognizes those who have "achieved a significant impact on the computing field.” Curiously, the ideals and practices of Open Source software are heavily under-represented. Why is that? And how do we change that?
Piers Cawley, Senior Programmer, Headforwards.
Writing documentation is already hard enough. Why do we make it even more difficult by burying the content in XML or struggling with finicky WSYWIG editors? Drop the angled brackets and discover the zen of writing documentation in AsciiDoc. While the format is plain text, it can still output beautiful HTML 5, DocBook and PDF documents--or even a slide deck like the one used in this presentation!
Using both SQL and NoSQL databases in the same application enables you to get the benefits of both kind of database: the scalability and performance of NoSQL and ACID transactions of SQL databases. In this talk, you will learn how to design applications that use this approach.
The time people spend sitting in chairs has increased substantially over the past 30 years, and related health issues such as obesity and musculoskeletal disorders are also on the rise. This is an area of concern for all who sit in chairs a lot, especially those in the computer industry. In this session, we'll look at recent research, and tools for mitigating the effects of sitting too much.

In this session we'll explore how to give, and receive, useful critiques of our work. We'll talk about the different kinds of critiques that are necessary as an idea develops. The emphasis will be on reviewing subjective work, not the easy stuff like white space at the end of a line.
