Topics

Everything is one, except for zero

This talk is a bit of an inspirational and meta talk about hackers, history and art.

I was lucky to spend more than 15 years among some of the most talented hackers and I have the feeling there are quite a lot of misunderstandings and misconceptions, especially in the younger generations or the newcomers.

I want to talk about what hackers are, what they do and their mindset. I want to show the different forms of hacking and how they relate to every day life, politics and art.

The goal is to clear up misconceptions, demystify and inspire by talking about the history, the culture and some amazing projects.

Unicode, a 💌

Unicode is the main way to represent text as data nowadays. Nothing can be easier then text, am I right? Or not?

Unicode is one of the things that can make you laugh and cry at the same time: it tries to put a (rather) unified system on top of one of the oldest cultural techniques we have: writing. I'd like to discuss Unicode in it's context: why it came to be, how it works and what it's advantages and flaws are.

(Hopefully) Beginner friendly for everyone that doesn't shy away from very simple discussion of data layout.

An introduction to neural networks with Ruby

This talk introduces you to artificial neural networks in an accessible way.
