      • 19 May 2015 - Double Header: Maven in Make and JVM Polygot

        Talk #1: Putting the Maven in Make: a recipe for platform-dependent Java/JNI builds. Java promises platform independence: build one place, run any place. C promises job security: build one place, run same place. Any other place costs more. Java builds use Maven. C builds use Make. You can do anything in C. You can doing anything in Java, save for that one thing that can only be done in C. Welcome to the world of the Java Native Interface. Where does a JNI build live on the Maven-Make build spectrum? It can live a lot nearer to the Maven end than you might imagine. Speaker: Stuart Maclean, Sr Software Developer Stuart Maclean works at the UW. He is currently designing tools for cyber defenders, keeping bad code out of good machines, or finding and removing it should it reach them. His primary codebase is in Java, but sometimes he needs some help from C. You can't read a disk drive serial number in Java. He wants his split-language builds to be heavy on the Maven and light on the Make. Talk #2: Busy Java Developer's Guide to Being A JVM Polyglot In recent years, the term 'polyglot'--meaning 'many languages', or 'being fluent in many languages'--has come to the world of programming. Neal Ford first coined the term 'polyglot programming' as one who uses multiple languages collectively as a way to build systems. And the JVM is a perfect platform on which to do this: not only do we see several languages (Groovy, Scala) becoming JVM markets in their own right, but a whole host of new languages keep appearing on the JVM, opening up new opportunities. In this talk, we'll go over several of the different languages running on top of the JVM, going over a little bit of their history, their goals, their features, what makes them interesting, and how a Java developer might consider using them. Some will be ports of other languages, some will be influenced by other languages, but all are guaranteed to run on the JVM and thus be relevant to a Java developer who--despite the changes that came in 8 and are coming in 9--is interested in using more than Java but still remaining relevant to his or her day job. Speaker: Ted Neward, http://www.newardassociates.com/ Ted Neward is an industry professional of twenty years' experience. He speaks at conferences all over the world and writes regularly for a variety of publications across the Java, .NET, and other ecosystems. He currently resides in the Pacific Northwest with his wife, two sons, dog, four cats, eight laptops, seven tablets, nine phones, and a rather large utility bill.

        • 16 Jul 2013: Natural Language Processing with Groovy (aka Java++)movie

          This talk is a Cook's tour of computational linguistics projects I've worked on over the last year demonstrating Information Extraction, Lexical Analysis (the linguistics rather than compiler kind), Statistical Parsing with an Ensemble, and Computer Program Corpus Construction (which includes parsing some English from Javadocs). In each case I'll give a very brief description of the motivating problem and then dive into code that deals with some part of it. We'll see how Groovy makes the most out of Java for text processing, simple web browser UIs, and cluster computing. While the particular top-level problems may be unfamiliar to folks accustomed to working on business applications, much of the effort and the code needed to make working programs will be familiar indeed. This talk should be of interest both to those curious about what goes on in NLP as well as those who would simply like to get some of their work done faster by using more powerful tools. Technologies we'll see at work (all of which are Open Source Software): Stanford CoreNLP Semgrex GATE (General Architecture for Text Engineering) MALLET (MAchine Learning for LanguagE Toolkit) DELPH-IN PET ERG (English Resource Grammar) Lucene Ratpack Gradle Condor Speaker: Jim White Jim White is a computational linguist with over 30 years of experience building computer systems (resume). Prior to focusing on Natural Language Processing (NLP) he worked at the software, firmware, hardware, and system architecture level in development tools, embedded and portable devices, networking, and graphics. He is an Open Source Software advocate, Groovy committer, and has created the innovative OSS Groovy for OpenOffice and IFCX Wings. He is currently working on a thesis for the Master of Science in Computational Linguistics (CLMS) at the University of Washington and will be instructor for the program's Computational Linguistics Fundamentals course this year.

              Title: Setting up a SharePoint Dev Farm on Azure IaaS Summary: Nothing beats your own dev farm when you want to be able to go crazy exploring new features. Problem is that VM’s are sooo 20th century…. Most of us don’t have the high-powered machines that you need to set up an n-tier dev environment and those of us that do have to deal with having snapshots of the farm, differencing vhd’s, sysprepped images that are out of date when a new SP for SQL, Windows or SharePoint is released, etc. This presentation will take you through the step by step instructions on how to set up a 3-tier SharePoint dev farm using Azure Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS). We will show a script that automates the deployment so that you can quickly spin up a farm for testing purposes. We will also touch on the basics of Azure IaaS so that you have an understanding of the common differences between it and Hyper-V on your laptop. Bio: Mario Brandan is a Regional Architect with Microsoft. He has over 16 years experience in the IT field and has at times been a developer, infrastructure engineer, architect, and DBA. He is currently focused on SharePoint 2013, Office 365 and Enterprise Social. In his spare time he enjoys playing music with bands, doing production work, exercise and travel.

                During Council Vice President Ellen Robertson's monthly 6th District meeting for August, there was a presentation from Crosland, the master developer for the Dove Court Redevelopment in North Richmond. Two individuals from Crosland gave the presentation, Dionne Nelson and Darryl Hemminger. Council member Robertson was not present at the meeting because she was in Seattle, Washington. The plan is to construct about 300 apartments, single family houses, row houses, duplexes and office space with about 1/3 dedicated to "affordable housing." Interesting to note, after the construction phase, Crosland will stay on long-term as the site's property manager, perform repairs, and enforce condo association-style rules in the neighborhood and may even hire their own security it they determine it in the interest of the neighborhood. What do you think? Leave a comment.
