  • Bytecode for discriminating developers

    by Anton Arhipov

    If you never goofed around with assembler or machine code Java bytecode can seem an obscure piece of low-level magic. But sometimes things go really wrong and understanding that bit may be what stands between you and solving the problem at hand. Looking to deepen you Java programming skills? Understanding bytecodes is necessary to solve performance issues, some classloading issues and to generate code at runtime. And some things you can do are just plain freakin' cool. This talk will introduce you the JVM and bytecode basics using live coding examples. It's my hope that you'll walk out armed for the next battle with low-level issues. From the basics, to more advanced gotchas: * How to obtain the bytecode listings * How to read the bytecode * How the language constructs are mirrored by the compiler: local variables, method calls, optimizations, autoboxing, exception handling, etc * insight to some bytecode manipulation libraries (ASM, Javassist)

  • Hva alle utviklere må vite om tegnsettenkoding

    by Stein Magnus Jodal

    Tegnsettenkoding er noe du finner i alle lag av enhver applikasjon. Har du strenger, så har du enkoding. Hvis du ikke har kontroll på enkoding vil du ofte ende opp med rare tegn på websiden, databasen vil ikke sortere norske tegn rett, og du ender av og til opp med filer med en god blanding av enkodinger som føles umulig å nøste opp i uten å fikse alle de rare tegnene manuelt.

    Etter denne lyntalen skal du ha en god forståelse av tegnsettenkoding, slik at du ikke må strø "charset=utf-8" tilsynelatende tilfeldig utover kodebasen din i håp om å få rett sluttresultat.

    At 12:00pm to 12:15pm, Thursday 8th September

  • CoffeeScript: JavaScript without the Fail

    by Bodil Stokke

    JavaScript. Love it or hate it, in the web development world it's impossible to avoid it. It was designed in one week by one man at Netscape, just to keep the browser from standardising on something even worse -- and it shows. Oh, it's not all bad, but the Good Parts -- which actually make up a pretty neat language -- are well hidden in among all the Bad Parts, which are there to make you, the JavaScript developer, suffer.

    CoffeeScript is a language designed to take the Good Parts out of JavaScript and make a new, concise and beautiful language out of them. It runs anywhere JavaScript does -- in fact, it compiles to fairly readable JavaScript -- so you can already use it in your web applications and wherever else you've been stuck with JavaScript. In this talk, you'll learn what CoffeeScript looks like, how it relates to the JavaScript you know, and what new features it has to offer. In fact, if you already know JavaScript well, you'll probably be perfectly fluent in CoffeeScript after this -- it's that easy. And trust me, your life will be so much better for it.

    At 1:00pm to 2:00pm, Thursday 8th September

  • Hvis du ikke leverer kontinuerlig, så er du ikke smidig!

    by Stein Inge Morisbak

    Manifestet for smidig programvareutvikling sitt første prinsipp sier at; det å levere programvare av verdi kontinuerlig, er vår høyeste prioritet. Dette er ofte lettere sagt enn gjort, fordi det forutsetter masse hard jobbing med å komme frem til en infrastruktur og en prosess som støtter en rask flyt fra idé til produksjon.

    Jeg vil gi et innblikk i hvordan teamet som utvikler Digipost gradvis har utviklet evnen til å kontinuerlig levere programvare av høy kvalitet til produksjon når vi vil, og ekstremt raskt. Du vil også få vite hvilke fordeler dette gir, utover rask ledetid fra idé til produksjon, og hvorfor det er smidigere. Det er ganske sikkert flere grunner enn du tror.

    At 1:40pm to 1:55pm, Thursday 8th September
