The only kids’ news app created for mobile is now live on Kickstarter. Designed around the scientific principles of Intrinsic Motivation (as opposed to “gamification”), Tenderfoot is the only news platform where adolescents ages 9-12 can learn about topics that interest them, improve their critical thinking skills, and share their thought with others in a safe, anonymous way.
We’ve formed a great team to build out our alpha and we’re excited to offer unbiased news to kids everywhere!

WeWork Bryant Park - 54 W. 40th Street - New York, NY
In this talk, we start by showing how we find performance bottlenecks in Java using a profiler. We check the profiler has found the mother lode by looking at the objects with reflection. In our first example, we profile an open source tool that exhibited CPU bound performance issues. We discover atypical bad coding paradigm and use Java reflection to test whether this bottleneck could be eliminated with a better hashing mechanism. Our second example is a look at the new Java 8 hash function inside HashMap. Debuggers hide the gory details of a HashMap from our prying eyes, so we use reflection to output the contents of the array of buckets. This talk is mostly live coding, with a few slides explaining how we find performance bottlenecks quickly. Presenter: Dr Heinz Kabutz writes the popular "The Java Specialists' Newsletter" read by tens of thousands of enthusiastic fans in over 134 countries.

We're seeing the emergence of a new role — the data artist — that bridges the growing divide that big data has brought between business and IT. Data artists go beyond traditional analysis to create visualizations that portray facts, relationships, flow, and patterns in ways the average business decision maker can quickly understand. Data artists paint with the data — transforming terabytes of often obscure data into meaningful information. Join Zoomdata's Director of Product Management, Olivier Meyer, as he shows why this role is becoming so important across industries, and what these new tools can do to help paint beautiful data across an enterprise.
Mike Kenyon of Pivotal Labs will lead us in a discussion on what it takes to maintain an open source project. His current projects are: "Bucket is a teachable chatterbot for Slack. Anyone can teach it how to respond when it hears something. Anything from setting up jokes with your friends to having it suggest board games to play. It's been on GitHub since 2014. Red Labels for Pivotal Tracker is a Chrome extension with over 1000 weekly users that makes it very obvious which user stories are blocked and which can be worked upon. Its primary challenge is that Chrome auto-pushes every deployment and that it's really hard to test the modifications to Tracker. Combined, these make me doubly nervous. It's also available on GitHub.
Description: Slack, Hangouts, and email all have their place, and globally distributed workplaces aren't going away anytime soon.

Presenter: Steve Guyer is a Project Manager with over 8 years experience in Interactive Agencies, Media, and Finance. He has a courtly demeanor that will melt your heart of stone.
We’re going to explore a topic together in a “TDDish” fashion. The workshop will be conducted a dialog that’ll go something like this: What test do we need to write? •We discuss. •Write test. What do we expect to happen? •We discuss. Run tests. •We discuss. What code do we need to write? •We discuss. Presenter will write the code •Repeat. Feel free to suggest a topic for us to explore. If there are no suggestions, we’ll pick something. See you all there!
