This talk will introduce the world of 3D animation to novices and beginner users. Using Blender, users will learn how to perform many tasks, including modelling (mesh editing, subsurfing, etc), texturing (procedural and image-based), material design, animation, and lighting. Intermediate users will also learn a lot from this tutorial, as the new version of Blender, 2.6, has significantly changed.

Sharding is a hot topic. Every big web site is using some sharding technique with home made solutions. The quest for the silver bullet goes on without apparent good results. This session will present two MySQL storage engines (Spider and Vertical partitioning) that implement transparent sharding techniques.
Aside from learning Clojure's syntax and approach to functional programming and concurrency, there's also the more mundane issues: What editor do I use? How to I build large projects?
