Pekka Enberg: Beyond Cloud Computing: Towards Serverless, Edge, and Sky Computing
Cloud computing has become the mainstream paradigm over the last decade. However, cloud computing has not achieved the grand vision of "computing as a utility", but instead we've ended up with a model of multiple largely API incompatible cloud providers. I this talk I will give a tour of three emerging complementary paradigms that move us beyond cloud computing: serverless, edge, and sky computing. I will take a look at what they're useful for, what's the programming model of each of them, and how they relate to each other.
Juho Ylikylä: Exploring SerenityOS
SerenityOS is a fresh but booming OS that looks like a mix of Windows 2000 and a UNIX terminal.
It is a terrific platform to learn about operating systems and how they work under the hood.
In my presentation, we'll explore some of its main features and code something cool that works inside it.
