  2. Life of an Airline Flight: What Systems Get You From Here to There via the Air — Adam Fletcher

    Talk by Adam Fletcher.

    Flying from BOS to SFO? You are interacting with a sophisticated set of systems, from flight search to booking to reservations to departure control, all of which have sit atop software written in the late 1950s. In this talk we’ll follow a flight from booking to landing to demonstrate how each of these systems work and interact with each other and with you. We’ll see how airline systems were early innovators in reliable distributed transactions, async messaging, store-and-forward networking, and predictable computing cost. We’ll show just how complex flight search is (spoiler: incredibly) and why sometimes it is cheaper to fly from BOS to SFO via JNU.

    Adam Fletcher built airline reservations system for ITA Software, an airline software company acquired by Google in 2011.

  4. Stanford Lecture: 2014 Kailath Lecture: Stanford Professor Donald Knuth

    "Let’s Not Dumb Down the History of Computer Science" -Professor Emeritus Donald Knuth, Stanford University

    For many years the history of computer science was presented in a way that was useful to computer scientists. But nowadays almost all technical content is excised; historians are concentrating rather on issues like how computer scientists have been able to get funding for their projects, and/or how much their work has influenced Wall Street. We no longer are told what ideas were actually discovered, nor how they were discovered, nor why they are great ideas. We get only a scorecard.

    In this talk, Professor Donald Knuth explains why he is grateful for the continued excellence of papers on mathematical history, and he makes a plea for historians of computer science to get back on track.

  6. Keynote: Securing Internet Applications from Routing Attacks

    Attacks on Internet routing are typically viewed through the lens of availability and confidentiality, assuming an adversary that either discards traffic or performs eavesdropping. Yet, a strategic adversary can use routing attacks to compromise the security of critical Internet applications likeTor, certificate authorities, and the bitcoin network. In this paper, we survey such application-specific routing attacks and argue that both application-layer and network-layer defenses are essential and urgently needed. While application-layer defenses are easier to deploy in the short term, we hope that our work serves to provide much needed momentum for the deployment of network-layer defenses.

  7. A Thorough Comparison of Delta Lake, Iceberg and Hudi

    Recently, a set of modern table formats such as Delta Lake, Hudi, Iceberg spring out. Along with Hive Metastore these table formats are trying to solve problems that stand in traditional data lake for a long time with their declared features like ACID, schema evolution, upsert, time travel, incremental consumption etc. This talk will share the research that we did for the comparison about the key features and design these table format holds, the maturity of features, such as APIs expose to end user, how to work with compute engines and finally a comprehensive benchmark about transaction, upsert and mass partitions will be shared as references to audiences.

  8. Technical leadership and glue work - Tanya Reilly | #LeadDevNewYork

    Video sponsor: United States Digital Service (https://usds.gov)

    Full talk title: Being glue

    Your job title says "software engineer", but you seem to spend most of your time in meetings. You’d like to have time to code, but nobody else is onboarding the junior engineers, updating the roadmap, talking to the users, noticing the things that got dropped, asking questions on design documents, and making sure that everyone’s going roughly in the same direction. If you stop doing those things, the team won’t be as successful. But now someone’s suggesting that you might be happier in a less technical role. If this describes you, congratulations: you’re the glue. If it’s not, have you thought about who is filling this role on your team?

    Every senior person in an organisation should be aware of the less glamorous - and often less-promotable - work that needs to happen to make a team successful. Managed deliberately, glue work demonstrates and builds strong technical leadership skills. Left unconscious, it can be extremely career limiting. It pushes people into less technical roles and even out of the industry.

    Let’s talk about how to allocate glue work deliberately, frame it usefully and make sure that everyone is choosing a career path they actually want to be on.

  9. 2021 State of Independent SaaS Report Live Stream

    Comprehensive data about the state for bootstrapped (or mostly) founders and how to use the report to make meaningful change in 2021.

    To access the full report, head over to https://stateofindiesaas.com after the live stream.

    For nearly a decade MicroConf has helped startup founders grow faster through access to world-class experts, and the world’s most trusted community of ambitious, bootstrapped and mostly bootstrapped founders. MicroConf has become the mothership for founders like yourself looking to learn and share strategies, tactics, advice, and inspiration.

    The beauty of creating this 2nd report is our ability to draw comparisons from one year to the next. While the overall structure is very similar to last year, you’ll notice we’ve drawn comparisons wherever the data deviated to a point that it became interesting.

    In addition, we’ve mixed up the visuals in many areas from simple bar and pie charts to now include word clouds and micro-infographics. The idea is to optimize the presentation of this information to help you understand it at a deeper level.

    This all lines up with our mission to help you be successful, faster.
