Talks:My Minecraft-Smart-Home: Prototyping the Internet of Uncanny Things
by Sascha Wolter.
Software solutions and everyday objects are becoming increasingly "smarter", take over more "responsibility" and know more and more about us and our intentions. But what does that mean for developers, and what impact does this have on the user? How do we convey the understanding and competence for this Internet of Things? Sascha Wolter covers typical IoT challenges and inspires with crazy and sometimes creepy examples. He also introduces a prototypic approach for hardware and software ideation based on visual programming languages, games like Minecraft, and several IDEs. Of course, it is shown that this pragmatic approach is also suitable for professional projects using IoT platforms and smart home solutions such as Google Weave, Eddystone Beacons, Eclipse SmartHome, or openHAB.

by Maxime Coste
As programmers, we spend most of our time in front of a code editor, such a basic part of our workflow matters a lot, and is worth
discussing. Through a live demonstration, well explore selection
oriented modal text editing and what makes Kakoune the best code
editor out there.
Maxime Coste is a video game technology programmer by day, Linux
enthusiast by night, and has been investing far too much free time
into writing the tool he spends most of his time working with: Kakoune.
The rest if the agenda to be completed.
