Jurassic Park in 3 Minutes
In this section I will do a quick and funny recap of Jurassic Park so we can all be on the same page and so I can talk about dinosaurs.
Software Engineering in Jurassic Park
This section will include further discussion of the points in the story that intersect with software development. Points of discussion could include:
Unethical Behavior as a Form of Chaos
This section will examine the choices of Nedry and how his unethical behavior was a catalyst for failures. The topic of Engineering Ethics will be introduced and explored. Ethical behavior prevents certain types of failures (imagine a contractor is using the wrong grade of steel for a building to cut cost). Additionally testing your work by ‘breaking things on purpose’ and ‘expecting failure’ is actually a very good application of engineering ethics.
A Resilient Jurassic Park
The final section will speculate about what could have been if the jurassic park software was subjected to some manufactured chaos instead of some dinosaurian chaos and also if Nedry had been more moral fiber.
A Python conference north of the Golden Gate
North Bay Python is a single-track conference with a carefully curated set of talks representing the diverse Python community and their different areas of interest.
If a topic is less to your interest, or you've met some people you really want to sit down and chat with, we'll have plenty of areas away from the main theatre to catch up and chat.
Our goal is to keep prices as low as possible. That means we won't be catering lunch. Instead, you can look forward to extra-long lunch breaks you can use to explore all of the great food options around the venue.
