Contratemporal Virtual Nanomachine Programming in Topologically Connected Quantum-Relativistic Parallel Spacetimes... Made Easy!

A session at GOTO Aarhus 2012

  • Damian Conway

Monday 1st October, 2012

5:00pm to 5:50pm (CET)

Watch in horror as Damian writes a Perl program to extract square roots using nothing but quantum mechanics, general relativity, and the very fabric of the space-time continuum.

Along the way we'll also investigate: Wittgenstein's dark secret; the diminishing returns of physical computation; Roman philosophy; when Super Science Adventures go wrong; the greatest Lego kit of all time; the secret identity of Sith; carbon logic vs silicon logic; the giants of 1930's physics; elementary spin-half quanta under relativistic motion; CAT scans; Will Smith; bongos; drunken bets involving penguins; algorithmic consistency; God's dice and the problem of free will; intrinsic self-inconsistency; the many worlds outside Copenhagen; and the inventor of stage diving.

Keywords: Perl, Languages, Web2.0, OpenSource

Target Audience: Developers of all levels of experience, ability, and sanity
