  1. “The Economics of Programming Languages” by Evan Czaplicki (Strange Loop 2023)

    In the mythology of open source, programming languages are created by people who seemingly have no direct economic function. They are just really good at compilers (somehow) and have a house to live in (somehow) and have a lifetime to devote to creating a useful programming language (somehow!)

    We will examine specific organizations that create programming languages. Where do the salaries for compiler engineers come from? How does Go end up with 5 engineers and Dart end up with 30? Who signs off on these expenses and why? Does this put any boundaries on language design or development practices? And how do the economics work for people outside of the major tech corporations?

    My goal is to give the talk I needed to hear 10 years ago when I was just starting on Elm. By clearly delineating the many variations of corporate funding and independent funding, I hope users will come away with a better foundation for evaluating and comparing programming languages.

    Evan Czaplicki Creator of Elm @evancz

    Evan is the creator and developer of the Elm programming language. He lives in Denmark, working alongside his wife at to keep Elm independent and interesting.

    —— Recorded Sept 22, 2023 at Strange Loop 2023 in St. Louis, MO.

  3. The Art of Software Development • Sander Mak • GOTO 2023

    This presentation was recorded at GOTO Amsterdam 2023. #GOTOcon #GOTOams

    Sander Mak - Java Champion & Author of O'Reilly's "Java 9 Modularity"


    ABSTRACT Are you a software engineer? You may want to think twice before answering… Looking closely, our collective software development practices may not be so rigidly engineered as we'd like to think. And you know what? That's ok! Let's embrace the art of software development and see where this takes us.

    In this talk, we'll look at software development as a craft combining art and engineering. What does this mean for coding, testing, architecture and design, and other important aspects of our work? And more importantly: what does this tell us about learning and growing as software developers? Our obsession with tools may cloud what software development is really about. Join this talk to unlock your inner artist! […]

  6. How Work Works • James Lewis • GOTO 2023

    This presentation was recorded at GOTO Aarhus 2023. #GOTOcon #GOTOaar

    James Lewis - Principal Consultant & Technical Director at Thoughtworks @thoughtworks


    ABSTRACT Have you ever thought about why what we see as the sensible defaults for software engineering in 2023 work? We adopt the key metrics from Accelerate, team structures from Team Topologies and Microservices in an effort to improve the flow of value to our users (or to a customer saying Thank You, paraphrasing Daniel Terhorst-North).

    But what is Value? What is Flow? James will use ideas from Information Theory and Complexity Science to peek into the domain model of our everyday experiences turning ideas into running software. Come along and explore the weird world of how work works. Warning, may cause you to reduce batch sizes, because maths. […]

  7. Is Software Engineering Real Engineering? • Hillel Wayne • YOW! 2023

    This presentation was recorded at YOW! Perth 2023. #GOTOcon #YOW

    Hillel Wayne - Chief Everything Office at Windy Coast Consulting @hillelwayne2899


    ABSTRACT What makes software engineering different from “traditional” engineering? To find out, I interviewed 17 “crossovers”: people who have worked professionally as both a software and a traditional engineer. In aggregate, we learn three things: we are in fact engineers, we’re not actually that different as a field, and there’s a lot we can both teach and learn. […]

    TIMECODES 00:00 Intro 00:50 Is software development a branch of engineering? 04:40 Let's tlak to engineers 05:13 3 questions 06:04 First Q: Are we really engineers? 17:54 Second Q: How similar are we to traditional engineering? 32:26 Third Q: What can we learn from each other? 34:28 What can we teach? 36:45 Version control 37:50 Conclusion 39:07 Outro
