# Part 1. The Centrifugal Governor and his grandchildren

What does AR drones, windmills, torpedoes and chainsaws have in common?

Helge Holm takes us through history from the whirly bally thingy on top of old steam engines, to its modern grandchildren that are remarkably useful for regulating systems even in code.

There will be a tiny bit of code, some math, and a pinch of steampunk.

# Part 2. PowerShell for Penguins

Is it possible to teach old penguins new tricks? Or do they just furrow their brow and snort something about "if it ain't broke"?

We test this hypothesis by looking at PowerShell Core in contrast to Bash and Posix, how to think with objects instead of text streams, how to do the same tasks we've been doing the past 20 years, and which advantages that can be enjoyed.
