      Many of us have to create software as part of our work, if you do probably you asked yourself some of the following: How other people at CERN develop? What technologies have they used? What worked and what didn't for them? Am I reinventing the wheel? What CERN services can make my life easier? What other services I miss that would be useful to have? How can I integrate my system with XXYY at CERN? Unfortunately there is little communication between us and we need to fix that, let's find initiatives to improve and share experiences between software engineers... let's talk!

      "Mocking" is a technique used in unit-testing that replace external dependencies with "fake" objects, simulating the behavior of the real ones. This process is usually applied when the existence of these dependencies makes impossible to write proper tests or when its result can be non-deterministic, hard to reproduce and/or slow to calculate. In this talk, I will briefly describe this technique and show how and where to use it through some examples.

      THE Port association combines creative minds from CERN and non-profit organisations in interdisciplinary teams to work on humanitarian technology related benefits to society. Our interdisciplinary teams of handpicked individuals chosen for their field-leading expertise and innovative mind combine humanitarian questions with state of the art science, cutting-edge technology and endless fantasy. We aim to impact the future by fusion of today’s real life problems analysis and vision of scientific evolution of the next decades. This forces us to develop concepts and solutions for the future - hungry to use our expertise in challenges of new fields.
      Speakers: Bruno Silva De Sousa (CERN) , Daniel Dobos (CERN) , Ines Knaepper

      Dotfiles are hidden files in your home folder that are used to configure tools like shell, vim or git and they tend to quickly become pretty messy. Even more when you decide to keep your refined ecosystem of dotfiles synchronized across computers. On this talk I will present my been there, done that, how I fixed it and why it can help you too even if you are happy just using Dropbox.

      The advent of cheap mass-produced electronics has brought with it a series of devices, "Software Defined Radios", that allow us to listen on a wide range of frequencies for as little as 20 CHF/USD. In this talk I will show some cool things that you can discover with no more than an SDR and some pieces of wire. Spoiler: there will be airplanes involved.
