    A Cloud Guru

    Warm up for DDD 2019 with DDD By Night in May. It's DDD but *lightning*. The evening will be hosted by the DDD Melbourne crew and consists of short & sharp presentations of ten minutes in length on a dev related subject. https://www.dddmelbourne.com/ TALKS Creating Website Status Updates for the Blind, the Bold and the Beautiful Ross Mullen @MrRossMullen If you were blind, do you think you could understand a websites status messages? Probably not, successfully saving an update, validation errors or timeouts would all be in an unreachable mess of DIV and SPAN elements invisible to screen readers. But it doesn't need to be this way, newly updated web accessibility standards have a specific technique for making status messages visible to screen readers. I'll show you how several small additions have a big impact and make your status messages standout for all. Yaser Adel Mehraban @yashints WebAssembly's post MVP future There are some misconceptions out there on WebAssembly. Most people think it is what landed in the browsers in 2017 which is not true. WebAssembly is designed to be backward compatible, therefore your old code will run just fine far into future. However, that doesn’t mean that WebAssembly is feature complete. In this talk we will see some features which are coming into WebAssembly which fundamentally alter what you can do with it. We go through an intro into what it is, what it is capable of and where not to use it. The last commit is only a beginning Nelli Lovchikova @nelli2k The real-life story of a piece of software that was delivered on time, but was a complete failure and how we took control over the situation and turn it into success by introducing real-time monitoring, improved logging, and other tweaks. Building an Augmented Reality experience in your web browser Timothy Dang @supatimbo Using current web technologies, we can quickly build a fun AR (Augmented Reality) experience right in your web browser in just a few lines of code. We can attempt to push the boundaries of your web browser and see what can be achieved using AR and web-based 3D renderings with WebGL - Machine Learning with the FastAI Library Image classification using deep learning. Akanksha Malik @akankshamalik96 The talk will be a start to end demonstration of how to create an image classification model using python using the FastAI library. Seeing Code as Art Leon Sutedja In day to day basis, as programmers, we write many lines of code. We constantly require to maintain the balance between cost, time, quality and flexibility. How do we stop just writing code, and start being an artist? what does it mean to be an artist in our profession, and start looking from a different perspective? Why is code can be considered an art? and what does it mean for us? These are the questions that we would like to try to answer in this small talk. Volunteering at Computer Science in Schools Michele Playfair @micheleplayfair In late January, I saw a post on LinkedIn calling out for a last-minute replacement volunteer for the "CS In Schools" program. Knowing pretty much nothing about it, I figured I would give it a crack and we volunteers have just completed the first ever term of this program! This talk will tell you what it's all about and how YOU can help. The Anthropology of Testing Michel Boudreau Let's travel through History and learn about the testing paradigms of the past to the current selection of tools and talk about what the future holds for testing. - SPONSORS FOOD SPONSOR https://ndcsydney.com/ DRINKS SPONSOR https://azure.microsoft.com/en-au/ VENUE SPONSOR https://acloud.guru/ - CODE OF CONDUCT All DDD events are subject to the DDD Code of Conduct available at https://www.dddmelbourne.com/code-of-conduct/

    Warm up for DDD 2019 with DDD By Night in February. It's DDD but *lightning*. The evening will be hosted by the DDD Melbourne crew and consists of short & sharp presentations of ten minutes in length on a dev related subject. The idea here is to share some cool things you know and love, and not to promote your employer. A mix of beginning and experienced speakers is part of what makes DDD By Night what it is so if you're passionate about something submit it to us even if it's not the latest thing. We love a good intro level talk just as much as an advanced topic so whatever level you aim for we'd love to have your talk submission. - TALKS - Are you addicted to your smartphone? - Stuart Dobson With the growth of mobile advertising, the tech giants have worked out how to keep you hooked on their platforms more than ever. Learn their tricks, so you can avoid them, or...mimic them in your own apps - Accidental Agility - Curtis Lusmore A reflection on agile development as it is commonly practised, by looking at how other industries get the benefits of agility without even realising it. - Getting started with Fable and Fable Elmish - Pavel Oborin A first steps in the wonderful world of F# for web development - NeurUL (NeurUL Universal Language) - Elmer Roderick Bool NeurUL (Neural Universal Language) is a free and open source project which aims to create and support a more simplified Ubiquitous Language for communications between humans, as well as humans and AI. It intends to become a platform for new software applications, as well as to enhance existing ones, in order to help developers and users solve prevalent yet fundamental challenges in IT. Unlike current languages which are domain-, tech-, and/or culture-specific, NeurUL is anthropomorphic, enabling its data to be as abstract or as concrete as necessary, yet remain immensely intelligible and flexible akin to its neurobiological inspiration. - W.W.F.U - Chris Drylie Nope, it's not another wrestling federation. It stands for What Works For Us. This talk is about ignoring the buzz words, lean, agile and waterfall and understanding that these are frameworks that we should not be cramming ourselves into. But using them in a way that suits you as a team/ business. To truly realise that our way of thinking needs to be flexible and adjust outside these methodologies so we can grow to work to our best potential. - I forgot how to build - James Formica My name is James Formica and I forgot how to build things. As developers we create things, that's what we do. For so long I've been building things for someone else's company that I forgot how to build for myself. Whether it was motivation or the simple question of "what's the point?", over time I forgot what it was like to create for no purpose other than the joy of making something. - Move over Alexa & Google, it's time for DIY Dave! - Scott Holden "Ok Dave, What's the weather?" In a world filled with virtual assistants, speech has become one of the primary communication mechanisms. But how do we go from yelling "Hey Dave" to delivering movie times in the form of synthesized speech? Let's take a look at the architectural design and technologies required to build our own "Dave" on top of Azure Cognitive Services. - SPONSORS Our friends from PageUp have kindly donated us some space to hold the event.
