1. Gold plating is frowned upon by project managers wanting you to provide value to the project at a steady pace. However, exaggeration is a great tool for learning and can be a lot of fun. Programming by hyperbole encourages you to:

    1. Take a small problem or implementation task you encounter in your day job.
    2. Bring it back home where no manager can see you and question your rationale.
    3. Generalize it, magnify it, distort it, bend it, shake it - no implementation plan is too baroque or bizarre.
    4. (Optional) Blog about it and put it on github.

    You might not end up with something that you'll want to bring back to the project, but you're bound to learn something interesting and have fun doing it. And remember, gold plating results in code that is covered with gold!

  2. Skal programmet dere utvikler brukes av mennesker? Da bør det brukertestes! Brukergrensesnitt kan ha feil på lik linje som kode. Den beste måten å avdekke feil på er å få reelle brukere til å løse faktiske oppgaver mens dere observerer. Gjør det enkelt, og dere kan gjennomføre flere runder med testing. Alt dere trenger er et møterom, noen oppgaver, noe å teste på, og noen potensielle brukere.

  3. In the world of web development, we have established tools and strategies for automated testing of both server-side code and in-browser JavaScript. Testing CSS, however, is still a time-consuming manual process. I will present current techniques for automating CSS testing, that will speed up development and increase maintainability of large-scale web projects.

    While automated CSS testing is still in its early stages, a variety of CSS testing tools are available. Tools for static analysis of CSS go beyond syntax checking and provide statements about code quality. In-browser testing techniques compare rendered HTML or style rules of DOM nodes to predefined references, and hence allow automated regression testing of CSS. With these tools and techniques at hand, what are the next challenges of automated CSS testing?

  4. This lightning talk presents some pretty impressive stuff you can build using native browser technology. Combining HTML5 video, WebRTC and Canvas with some Javascript, this talk shows you how to do real time analysis and transformation of user video in the browser.

    Want to run your Powerpoint presentation on a towel? Need to make your shirt invisible? Fancy reading Wikipedia on a Post-It note? Video record the guy who stole your laptop? No problem! With HTML5 you can do that and more!

  5. There have been several attempts at patching static typing into JavaScript, but none have had any notable success. TypeScript is different. Aligning with the EcmaScript 6 standard, it is a simple superset of JavaScript that’s easy and intuitive to learn for anyone with knowledge of JavaScript. In this talk you will learn what it is, what’s new, how it differs from JavaScript, where the dragons are and where it will go from here. The speaker have looked into TypeScript extensively and used it in production code. Come get the distilled version of what you need to know!
