      MOOCs' popularity expands world-wide. No reason for CERN to be left behind. They can become a starting point of inter-disciplinary collaborations, material for quality outreach programmes, a solution for high-level training under restricted budget conditions, a source of inspiration and a method for reaching in-depth understanding across experiments and departments within CERN. Let's see how in 5'.

      R seems to be ideal tool for visualising your data as well as practically all other data-related tasks. Learn how to start with R as it is worth to be included not only in statistician's or data scientist's toolboxes.

      No, not the Chinese boardgame, the programming language that ironically Google made difficult to google for. You may have heard of Golang, and are wondering whether you should learn it. The answer is that of course you should, and this talk should explain why and point you at the best resources to get started.
      Speaker: Ben Jones (CERN)

      Are you looking for a way to better diagnose or monitor your C/C++ programs? Find out more about CMX - a neat, lightweight library (<32Kb) which targets this need. It allows to expose information from inside a process through a simple API, enabling pre-failure detection in combination with your favourite monitoring system.

      A currently available software solution to simulate neural development is Cx3D. However, this software is Java-based, and not ideal for high performance computing. This talk presents our step-by-step porting approach, that uses SWIG as a tool to interface C++ code from Java.

      Are you interested in innovation and entrepreneurship? Do you think about starting a company, or do just want to be inspired? Then maybe you would be interested in coming to the CERN entrepreneurship meet-up. The meet-up is an informal after work gathering every other week. Often with external guest speakers sharing their knowledge. Learn more at cern.ch/kt/meet-up
