Edsger W. Dijkstra on “Discipline in Thought” :
Edsger Wybe Dijkstra (May 11, 1930 – August 6, 2002; pronounced [ˈɛtsxər ˈwibə ˈdɛɪkstra]) was a Dutch computer scientist. He received the 1972 A. M. Turing Award for fundamental contributions in the area of programming languages, and was the Schlumberger Centennial Chair of Computer Sciences at The University of Texas at Austin from 1984 until 2000.
Shortly before his death in 2002, he received the ACM PODC Influential Paper Award in distributed computing for his work in the subarea of self-stabilization. This annual award was renamed the Dijkstra Prize the following year, in his honour. [...]
Discipline in thought is a Dutch biographical movie about Prof. Edsger Dijkstra which focuses not so much on his contributions to computer programming fundamentals, but rather, on his way of thinking. A fantastic video for anyone interested in computer science.
Philip R. Zimmermann is the creator of Pretty Good Privacy, an email encryption software package. Originally designed as a human rights tool, PGP was published for free on the Internet in 1991. This made Zimmermann the target of a three-year criminal investigation, because the government held that US export restrictions for cryptographic software were violated when PGP spread worldwide. Despite the lack of funding, the lack of any paid staff, the lack of a company to stand behind it, and despite government persecution, PGP nonetheless became the most widely used email encryption software in the world. After the government dropped its case in early 1996, Zimmermann founded PGP Inc.
This episode is about OSGi, the dynamic module system for Java. Our guests are Peter Kriens (OSGI’s Technical Director) and BJ Hargrave (OSGI’s CTO). We’ll discuss what OSGi is all about and why and in which contexts it is useful. Additionally we are having a look at the different layers of OSGI and where and how they are used. Other questions discussed are: What means dynamicity in an OSGI environment? Where is OSGI used? What’s the future of OSGI? How does OSGI interact with existing middleware solutions? How can I run several versions of the same JAR at the same time? Where are OSGI’s problems?
The Spring-OSGi project makes it easy to build Spring applications that run in an OSGi framework. A Spring application written in this way provides better separation of modules, the ability to dynamically add, remove, and update modules in a running system, the ability to deploy multiple versions of a module simultaneously (and have clients automatically bind to the appropriate one), and a dynamic service model.
Agile Estimating and Planning” author, and Agile Alliance co-founder, Mike Cohn, provides detailed, proven techniques for estimating and planning any Agile project.
David Heinemeier Hansson, the creator of the Ruby on Rails web development framework demonstrates how to create a blog engine in 15 minutes.
Filmed at O’Reilly FOO Camp 2008, security researcher Dan Kaminsky explains his discovery of a major protocol-level flaw in DNS and how he got major vendors to do something about it. For more information on the bug visit doxpara.com and news.oreilly.com.
is a security researcher and Director of Penetration Testing for IOActive who used to work for Cisco and Avaya. He is known among computer security experts for his work on DNS cache snooping, including showing that the Sony Rootkit had infected at least 568,200 computers and for his talks at the Black Hat Briefings.
