Dependencies Gone Wild: Tales from automating 10k+ project's dependency updates

We are pleased to welcome Rhys Arkins as a speaker in our meetup: # Title: Dependencies Gone Wild: Tales from automating 10,000+ project's dependency updates # Short abstract Renovate Bot is a tool used to automate dependency updates across dozens of package managers, in use by 10's of thousands of active projects. This presentation will focus on lessons learned working with dependencies in the wild: vulnerabilities, different approaches across languages, and the use and misuse of semver and other versioning approaches. # Short bio Rhys Arkins is the author of Renovate Bot, which exists as both an open source CLI tool as well as a popular hosted dependency service.

CASTOR Software Days at KTH October 14-16

NOTE: The registration page of the event is https://castor-software-days-2019.github.io, where you could choose to attend different parts. We are delighted to announce the first edition of the CASTOR Software Days to be held at KTH, Stockholm, from Monday the 14th to Wednesday the 16th of October. Software researchers, engineers and students will meet to exchanges about cutting-edge software technology in three areas: DevOps - Automation from continuous integration to runtime operations, Safety and Security - Hardening the software stack, Large-Scale Distributed Systems - Operations and data analysis at scale. The days will mix keynotes, academic and industry talks, demos, lightning talks and student events. These Software Days are organized by the CASTOR software research center. Exciting co-located events will also take place, in particular our Continuous Integration Art Hackathon, during which real-time online software activities will be embodied by organ music, lights and visuals, 25 meters underground, in the former Swedish research nuclear reactor R1! Save the date in your calendars, and secure your seat right away!

Hackathon on Continuous Integration Art - October 14

Needs a location

Date: October 14 from 17:00 to 00:00 Place: Former Nuclear Reactor R1 (https://www.r1.kth.se/) For more information and registration: https://castor-software-days-2019.github.io/ci_art_hackathon For the first time, the new research centre CASTOR (http://www.castor.kth.se/) is hosting a hackathon on continuous integration and software art. It will take place in the context of the CASTOR Software Days at the old underground structure of the very first research nuclear reactor of Sweden, called R1. We are looking for passionate and creative software students, software developers, artists, designers or simply curious citizens to create beautiful visualization and sonification of continuous integration (of compilations, tests, analysis, packaging, deployment). These representations can be purely visual with beautiful images (still), videos (i.e., moving, à la Gource https://gource.io/) or soundtracks (the sound of the continuous factory of open source software, à la Howler https://github.com/goldfire/howler.js) It doesn’t matter which level of expertise you have within the area of computer science, design or digital art but you should have some basic knowledge in programming (Java, Python, Javascript). The only limit is your imagination!
