    PLUG Advanced Topics: FreeTUIT - Codeless GUI Programming

    Speaker: Eric Wilhelm

    Codeless GUI Programming A Declarative Syntax Layer for Desktop Graphical User Interfaces

    This will be the world premiere of a game-changing advancement in the development of desktop graphical user interfaces (GUIs). FreeTUIT removes the verbosity, tedium, and confusion from GUI development and provides a unified syntax for widget layout and configuration which supports good software design practice without getting in the way of rapid application development.

    FreeTUIT is a syntax and runtime for concisely declaring the layout and configuration of GUI widgets (such as forms, toolbars, buttons, and dialogs). The freetuit interpreter drives a unified object layer which is accessible from event callbacks. This takes you from a blank page to a static demo of the layout with zero setup and allows desktop applications to be developed and deployed faster than web applications by simply removing the HTML, CSS, XML, HTTP, Javascript, Database, Network, and User Agent components.

    PLUG/Perl: Indexing CPAN

    Speaker: brian d foy Topic: Indexing CPAN

    BackPAN is the historical archive of the Comprehensive Perl Archive Network, where most Perl modules live. Going back to 1993, BackPAN has about 100,000 distributions, taking up 12 GB of space. So far, there has not been a comprehensive index of all of these distributions. I'm working on a project to go through each distribution, record as much information as I can, and store that in a way that other people can ask questions. The big goal now is to take any Perl module file you have installed locally and query my index to determine exactly which distribution it came from, when it was released, what other files came with it, and at the time of it's release what its dependency list was.

    My talk is a demonstration of what I have so far, which is still in the data collection phase. I have an indexer that knows how to go through distributions and record information, and can do some with pluggable components for each portion of the work. In my talk, I'll demonstrate the current indexer and talk a little bit about the tools and techniques I use. There's plenty of cool Perl things going on, and I'm sure some of the Linux people will have valuable comments about software indexing.

    PLUG: IPv6 networking

    Speaker: Timothy D. Morgan

                 Virtual Security Research, LLC.
    

    Subject: IPv6

    IPv6 is the next generation Internet protocol designed to expand usable address space and implement evolutionary improvements to the current IPv4 protocol. As the address space shortage looms near, it is becoming increasingly clear that the networking and systems communities remain ill-prepared for this transition. This talk provides a broad overview of IPv6, it's features and transition technologies, and follows with a demonstration of how to set up an IPv6-enabled firewall for a simple network using Linux.

    And a basic BIO:

    Timothy D. Morgan is a long-time programmer, systems administrator, security consultant, and Linux user. Tim's work in IPv6 has consisted of home networking experiments and research in utilizing the expanded IPv6 address space for spoofed attack mitigation. Tim currently works as an application security specialist and digital forensic investigator at Virtual Security Research, LLC.

    Remember to buy food and drinks and tip your waitress well. Jax has been very good to us over the years and we want to make sure they survive.

    Randal Schwartz on Smalltalk [PLUG-AT]

    Sure, Smalltalk is where we got our modern view of windows and mice and "the desktop" and object-oriented programming and extreme programming two decades ago, but what has Smalltalk done for us lately?

    I'll answer this by showing off the Seaside web application framework: an open-source (but vendor supported) challenge to the classic web design strategies. Imagine being able to debug a broken web-hit in the middle of the hit, fixing the code, and continuing before the browser knows that something went wrong. Imagine being able to re-use control flows and web components with the ease of OO programming. Imagine being able to do test-driven development, even for HTML delivery. Imagine taking an application from "three guys in Starbucks on a laptop" to "3000 hits per second on your Amazon EC2 cloud" with no major changes in design. No need to imagine... I'll demonstrate all this and more.

    Smalltalk knowledge is not required: I'll start with a brief overview of Smalltalk using Squeak, the free implementation that's even included in the OLPC XO. General knowledge of Object-Oriented Programming basics would be helpful, though.

    Please note that this talk is a work in progress... this presentation is a rehearsal for the actual delivery in mid-April in Brazil at FISL 2008. Some parts are still a bit rough.
