Dependency Management Using Git

It is difficult to manage multiple git projects in an open-source organization. Mostly the projects end up being fragmented and redundant at times, which makes it difficult to maintain. This talk will focus on achieving dependency management for your project using git subtrees and/or git submodules. This talk will be accompanied by a demo of POC achieving the aforementioned for Kogito and how this can aid in multiple applications such as single-sourcing.
Major highlights include:
1. Need for dependency management
2. Leveraging git subtrees and submodules to minimize fragmentation and redundancy
3. Subtrees vs submodules(accompanied by demo of POC)
4. Applications and caveats

Get Started with ActivityPub, Decentralized Social Networking Protocol

Mastodon recently became popular in India due to censorship concerns with Twitter. Mastodon uses a W3C standard protocol called ActivityPub under the hood. In this talk, I will talk about how powerful ActivityPub is and how it can be used as a distributed pub/sub system for the entire Web (what Twitter was supposed to become). I recently made one of my webapps to act like both a source and sink for ActivityPub events. I will walk you through this process so that you can do the same.

Enabling speed and confidence with “testing”

Talk is about achieving the goal of speed with quality. Though test automation is an answer however the way it is done doesn't lead to success. The talk will include:
Current challenges teams face - management, technical, strategy/planning, and cultural.
Some antipatterns.
Some suggestions (based on his experience) - mindset, planning, prioritisation, technical, and management. The aim is to help give guidance to teams so that they can adopt a culture of speed with quality.

ARPAN BANERJEE

/masterclass

Can data science lead us to the grand unified theory of brain function?

Long before the growth of neuroscience as a prominent field of science, human curiosity has been excited by the operational principles of the brain. In the first half of this talk, Arpan will discuss some aspects of the evolution of such theories.
In the second half, Arpan will discuss how the modern techniques have allowed to us to peek into the dynamics of brain computation and the exciting new developments which thrown at us a deluge of empirical data that can potentially resolve several unanswered debates in human cognition with specific exemplars from our work in multisensory perception.

ERIC NORMAND

/masterclass

A Theory of Functional Programming

What is functional programming? Sure, there are academic answers, but is there a good definition that encompasses all that we do in day-to-day software engineering? In Eric Normand's book, Grokking Simplicity, he gathers functional programming practices from the industry, distills them down, and teaches them to beginners. In this talk, he presents functional programming as a set of skills, not a dogma about programming style. The FP skills are applicable to your software, regardless of the language or paradigm you use.
