The world of web standards can be a daunting place, especially to the uninitiated. This talk explains the web standardization process. Starting with her own history with web standards, Divya Manian, Advanced Web and Interactivity Designer at Adobe, goes from the reasoning behind standards, to how a standard is developed, and ultimately how you can contribute to the process. This talk is a great place to start if you’re at all interested in web standards, and how they can make your life (and everyone else’s) a little easier.
Explore emerging design patterns for building web applications that take advantage of large-scale, structured data. We’ll look at open datasets like Wikipedia and Freebase as well as structured markup like Schema.org and RDFa to see what new types of applications these technologies open up for developers.
As developers, we spend more time communicating with humans than we do with computers. How can we do that more effectively? How can we be more accurate and concise in our communication? How can we best find analogies which illustrate the desired point? When working with difficult to describe concepts, how can we more easily define them and improve our communication of them? What short and long term benefits can we reap from learning to more effectively communicate?

For years the most prominent way of building reliable distributed systems was using distributed
transactions. Distributed transactions cause some major problems in the fields of performance,
administration and politics to name a few. Instead of getting used to live with these problems, we can avoid the at all by using a different approach to architecture.
What most people (80/20) seem to “know” about CMMI and the SCAMPI appraisal method comes from what people learned and how they used CMM and CMMI in the early adoption phase. However, instead of innovating and using engineering to create appropriate processes, they just reused old and often poorly-fitting processes and approaches.
Pursuing an unquestioning belief in economy of scale, managers of service organizations have industrialized their operations. Front- and back-offices, glued together by IT systems are now the norm. But being normal is not the same as being right. Building on the work of W. Edwards Deming (â€˜we invented management, we can re-invent itâ€™) John Seddon has pioneered the development of a â€˜systemsâ€™ approach to service organization design. The systems approach exposes the wrong-headed nature of conventional management, it explains why so many IT projects fail and it helps us understand …
While we assert that software development is not manufacturing, we often slip into manufacturing metaphors and analogies and then fail to extricate our explorations of how software development unfolds from manufacturing. Some of these analogies are so deeplyâ€“rooted into our customs that we readily contradict our own assertions. This presentation looks at just how handicapped your software development becomes at the hand of these engrained manufacturing perspectives. It looks at product development theory as a better analogy to software development and a more practicable body of knowledge for software development. …
