Petar Maymounkov introduces Go Circuit, a system that reduces the human development and sustenance costs of complex massively-scaled systems nearly to the level of their single-process counterparts.
Matthew Graham introduces Qbrt, a bytecode assembly language with built-in primitives for concurrency and inline asynchronous I/O, enabling language designers to focus on the human interface by abstracting the implementation of complex runtime features behind a clean, simple bytecode interface.
Alvaro Videla presents the more advanced features of RabbitMQ: federated brokers, HA queues and support for many protocols and languages.
Molham Aref introduces LogicBox, a database that unites declarative programming (logic-based specifications) with cloud deployment over large datasets using the Datalog programming language.
Juergen Hoeller presents Spring as an annotation-oriented application framework, illustrating the rich set of features that Spring has to offer for modern component design.
Hosted by Erik Meijer, who runs the Cloud Programmability Team at Microsoft, the panelists answer questions on C/C++ and Java performance, contrasting the virtues of native vs. managed code.
Crista Lopes discusses if scale affects the internal structure of projects and whether the popularity of libraries is correlated with internal software metrics such as bug density based on analyzing the source code of 30,000 open source Java projects.
Jordan DeLong overviews the past, current and near future "good parts" of C++'s functional side through the colored lens of his biases.
Scott Vokes presents the algorithms at the heart of most compression tools, as well as how to design protocols and data formats to go with their flow.
Matthew Moloney discusses using F# and .NET inside Excel, demonstrating doing big data, cloud computing, using GPGPU and compiling F# Excel UDFs.
Jafar Husain, Matthew Podwysocki teach developers to think about events as collections, demonstrating some basic collection operations to express complex asynchronous programs as simple expressions.
