Finding the way

At the entrance gate, it should be open, and they should walk directly straight to the main courtyard where you will see a sign about the event.

Food & Drinks

Options will all be vegetarian or vegan and it'll be quite varied! Such as, whole wheat sandwiches with avocado creme and grilled mushrooms, and/or other vegetables, mini vegan burgers alongside skewers with fried halloumi or falafel with tomatoes.

Health & Safety

Be considerate of other people and their space and preferences. There is no mask mandate, but feel free to wear one.

Topics

Laziness-driven development

"The quality that makes you go to great effort to reduce overall energy expenditure. It makes you write labor-saving programs that other people will find useful, and then document what you wrote so you don’t have to answer so many questions about it. Hence, the first great virtue of a programmer."
Source: Perl Glossary

Laziness-driven development is a set of rules that might help anyone to harness great power of laziness to create better software. Some of these rules are obvious, some might be controversial, but they all are based on personal experience and serve me well for many years already.

Refactoring a large open source app: Take promotions out of Solidus

Applying promotions in Solidus, a rather large open-source e-commerce framework, is a bit buggy. The bugs are hard to fix, because backwards-compatibility is a big concern in the community and deprecation cycles can last years. This talk documents the process of fixing the promotion system within Solidus by first re-writing it as a gem, then finding the seams, then extracting the original promotion system into another gem, then making the two gems interchangeable. I hope it's fun to watch.
