  1. Beyond Functional Programming: The Verse Programming Language (Simon Peyton Jones)

    Since joining Epic Games in late 2021, I have been involved in the design and development of Verse, a new, declarative programming language that Epic plans to use as the language of the metaverse.

    Verse is a functional logic language, with a bunch of innovative ideas. Like Haskell Verse is declarative (a variable in Verse stands for just one, immutable value), and higher order (lambdas are first class). But Verse goes well beyond Haskell, with existential variables, unification, expressions that yield multiple values, and more besides. In this talk I'll give you a sense of what functional logic programming is about, what it looks like to program in Verse, and how we can give meaning to Verse programs using rewrite rules.

  2. SREcon Conversations Europe/Middle East/Africa with Avery Pennarun, Tailscale

    The Curse of Unreasonably Sized Networks

    Avery Pennarun, Tailscale

    What does IPv6 have in common with String Theory? How big can an internet get before parasites use it to destroy democracy? When you're building infrastructure, should scale–invariance be the ultimate goal? Can you give people a useful, verifiable identity without building a panopticon? Did you ever notice that Dunbar's Number fits comfortably in a /24? And what does NAT have to do with anything? We'll answer some of these questions!

    Avery is co-founder and CEO of Tailscale, which is the opposite of Internet scale, and it shows. His open source projects include wvdial, netselect, git-subtree, bup, sshuttle, and redo. Once, on vacation, he wrote a visual simulation of wifi beamforming radiation patterns. Nobody knows why.

  3. “Sniffing the Metaverse” by Benjamin Cabé (Strange Loop 2022)

    Over the last decade, AI has been infused into everyday applications, helping us find the relevant information, tell the difference between a dog and a muffin but smelling things for us is not one of them. An electronic nose can detect lung cancer, help in explosive material detection, industrial level food and resource monitoring and more. How can you train your data to solve your specific problems? How do you make sense of large-scale real-time sensor data? How does Metaverse connect to the physical world through sensors?

    In this talk we will show you how we solve a big developer problem, how to find the freshest coffee in your office building. Beyond solving our silly first world problem with AI, we will tell you the story of the 13 year old who actually use the sensors to detect fungal pneumonia. Our demo will walk you through the tools that solve bigger problems on larger scales like Machine Learning, Digital Twins(IoT) and Spatial Anchors(Augmented Reality) .

  4. “The Evolution of a Planetary-scale Distributed Database” by Kevin Scaldeferri (Strange Loop 2022)

    When New Relic's in-house telemetry database (NRDB) was first created Docker didn't exist, Kafka was risky bleeding-edge technology, and running a system like it in the public cloud was prohibitively expensive. Today, NRDB is globally distributed, cloud-agnostic, and orchestrated with Kubernetes. We ingest exabytes of data into a swarm of continuously rebalanced clusters while providing a seamless experience to our users, who never have to know about any of the complexity under the hood. This talk will discuss how we got from there to here, the challenges we faced, and how we solved them. You'll walk away with a better understanding of both the theory and practice of building and operating global-scale distributed systems.

    Kevin Scaldeferri has over 20 years of experience building large scale distributed systems in the search, eCommerce, and observability spaces. He is a passionate supporter of monoids, strong type systems, and the Oxford comma.

  9. “Demystifying Privacy Preserving Computing” by Tejas Chopra (Strange Loop 2022)

    When it comes to privacy, encrypted data-in-transit (eg: HTTPS) or encrypted data-at-rest (eg: encrypted hard-disks) schemes provide sufficient cryptographic guarantees in the battle to protect it. The unresolved problem is encrypting data-in-use. Currently, in order to process data, we need to decrypt, process, and re-encrypt. Computation over unencrypted data may compromise the confidentiality of data and suffer various security attacks Privacy-Preserving Computing (PPC) has emerged in recent years to enable the secure computation of the data without revealing the content of the data. These techniques look at how to represent data in a form that can be shared, analyzed, and operated on without exposing the raw information We will discuss current state-of-the-art PPC techniques and the distinct threat models and business use cases they address. The techniques we will cover are: Secure multiparty computation (SMPC), Fully homomorphic encryption (FHE), Differential privacy (DP)
