With computing permeating our society a little more with each passing day, the programs we write now have the potential to affect people's lives in greater and greater ways, for better or for worse. This talk aims to look at some of the consequences these advancements in our field have on people's lives and explores the importance of ethics in our daily work. It ends with concrete suggestions on how you, a regular programmer with no formal education or schooling in ethics, can help improve our field" * 20:00 - 20:10 Short break * 20:15 - 20:45 Talk 2: Noam Tenne - We need a better testing framework "Python has a super rich and active ecosystem, and py.test is great, but I believe we deserve a better testing framework. This is why I've started developing a new framework named "Nimoy". Using Nimoy, I set out to make Python testing beautiful, expressive, pragmatic and fun" The framework is named "Nimoy" and you can find it in github at: https://github.com/browncoat-ninjas/nimoy * 20:45 - 21:15 Talk 3: TBA * 21:15 - 22:00 Drinks Make sure your RSVP is right.
