  • Digital Inclusion and Economic Empowerment with Microsoft's Caroline Williams Nov 22 2018 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Caroline Williams, Program Manager - National Empowerment Plan, Microsoft
    I'm always curious about the larger world and the structure and struggles of organizations and communities. My work is focused on digital inclusion and economic empowerment for all residents of the Netherlands. I believe in community sourced development instead of prescriptive guidance. What does this mean in practice? That the solutions that we are contributing to are relevant, effective and able to be enhanced by the communities we work with.

    Previously focused on DevOps and how to implement and benefit from improvement in processes and tools, combined with people development. I believe in providing clear and practical guidance to help teams iterate on meaningful and achievable goals in their journey towards Continuous Delivery. I share my knowledge and experiences with teams looking to transform their practices, whether that is on premise, in the cloud or a hybrid model.

  • Coding for All: Writing Smart Contracts Using Higher Natural Blockchain Language Oct 23 2018 11:00 am UTC 60 mins
    Arnoud Berghuis, Founder of the Blockchain Knowledge Foundation (BKS)
    In this talk, you will learn how managers or lawyers & accountants can write and read error free blockchain themselves using a higher natural programming language. Smart contracts are like real contracts, once referred to in the consideration of a real contract, there is a need to understand the smart contract.

    OLE Natural blockchain language enables managers to produce error free executable blockchain code faster. The compiler does the work, generates executable Solidity for Ethereum or Quorum blockchains. More important than speed is that OLE makes that lawyers or managers can understand (R/W/Validate) blockchains and that code is error free. Blockchain is write only, hence errors cannot be removed!

    OLE comes with a simple 2 STEP methodology to grantee ERROR FREE code: First, the OLE natural language input texts can be validated for correctness by domain experts. Second, compiler does the work and compiles to executable blockchain. The authors highlight further the need for a semantic blockchain.

  • How to Protect Cloud-Based APIs from Data Scrapers and Cloned Apps Recorded: Sep 26 2018 47 mins
    David Stewart - Co-Founder, CriticalBlue and Stephen Gorton -Technical Architect, Racing Post
    If you are deploying APIs, even private ones, you are leaving your revenue stream open to exploitation. APIs are a window into your business and if there is a way to make a gain from abusing that API, someone will do it. Worse, thousands of people or thousands of bots may do it.

    The art of keeping scripts and bots from abusing your APIs requires you to validate that the incoming traffic is coming from an authentic client. Merely authenticating users may not be appropriate or may not be enough. When the remote client is a mobile app and you know that mobile devices should not be trusted, achieving the authentication goal is easier said than done.

    This session will explain how Racing Post launched a feature-rich API and a new native mobile app and managed to protect their valuable data from API scrapers and their brand reputation from cloned apps. We will cover their experiences with bots, their approach to the problem and how they solved it.

    Whether you are a mobile or API developer, an enterprise system architect, or even a product owner with strong mobile revenue, you'll want to hear this story.

  • Scaling Collective Code Ownership & Code Reviews at LinkedIn - Nikolai Avteniev Recorded: Sep 21 2018 57 mins
    Nikolai Avteniev - Software Engineer, LinkedIn
    The contemporary code review practice has been adopted by many organizations and open source projects as a quality assurance measure. This process typically involves software tools such as Review Board and the time of one or more peer reviewers.

    However, there is a growing body of empirical research about this broadly‐adopted practice that can help us learn more about the effects of code reviews on software quality. Available research shows that in fact, peer code reviews are better suited for knowledge sharing and code improvements, rather than for eliminating code defects or reducing error rates. The effectiveness of the process seems to depend on the experience of the reviewer with the code, the size of the change set, and the rate at which the review is conducted.

    In this talk, Nikolai will share how the LinkedIn Flagship Product Engineering team leverages the code review process to spread organizational knowledge and uplevel individual contributors. I will also discuss the tools we’ve built to support this practice across a team which spans three offices, four development stacks, dozens of teams, and hundreds of individual contributors.
