Mapping genomes vs the speed of light

Mapping genome pieces on to a genome is a basic step in most bioinformatic workflows. In this talk I will present how this problem is solved and how memory access times affects the way we look at this problem. The memory access time is bound by the distance between the CPU and the memory and thus the speed of light. At the same time the memory bandwidth and the number of CPU cores increase each year.

Know your data

Machine learning, and maybe in particular deep learning, is everywhere these days. Sometimes it’s easy to get blinded by new and fancy methods and forget about an equally important aspect of machine learning: the data. In this talk I’ll use speech recognition as an example of machine learning to illustrate some of the pitfalls of not knowing your data. You’ll also see a bit of tensorflow and python and the code to the examples will be placed on github after the presentation.

Firebase, Rx and Swift on iOS

The real-time updates of data from Firebase fits extremely well with the reactive programming of Rx. What is Rx, how is it used in Swift and how can we abstract the real-time updates from Firebase into live-updating ‘signals’ in RxSwift and build a responsive app.

Augment the dull reality with ARKit

With ARKit Apple has made it easy (well…easier at least) and fun to create Augmented Reality apps. In this talk we will explore how to use the new image tracking feature to apply magic to static images and how we’ve used ARKit in client projects at Nodes.​ Along the way we will cover some of the fundamentals of ARKit that makes this possible. And yes, there will be code!

The next big thing in (client side) templating

In this talk we will talk about the evolution of client-side templating, and where the platform is taking us next. Maybe you thought ES6 template literals were just multi-line strings – but they are so much more. Your browser now has a native way of handling templating, that is both scalable and extensible – and really performant. We will take the time to dive into the individual parts and understand how combining the template element with template literals might be the next big thing in templating. Finally I will share my thoughts on how and why, combining this with webcomponents, could be the future of frameworks.

It’s time to hit the SPA with Google

Single Page Applications, commonly referred to as SPAs is the “new” way to build website. It reduces page loads and increase user experience. So, why isn’t everyone using this? A major disadvantage of SPAs is poor SEO, if it’s not handled correctly. So what can we do about this problem and how bad of a problem is it actually? We’ll give you the tips and tricks on how to handle different edge cases when building your website as a SPA application as it can affect your SEO rankings and overall page speed. You’ll learn more about the do’s and don’ts and what impacts it can have. Join us and become a fellow Local Rockstar on how to handle SPAs with Google and make sure that your site doesn’t get punished by when using this awesome technology.

SQL server optimization for developers

We all talk about performance. Performance is a big deal.  It is all about delivering the crucial content to the end user as fast as possible. We optimize the UI, we optimize the codebase, but quite often the database is neglected. I’m not a database administrator, but as a developer who uses it every single day, I have pretended to be one for the last 20 years.
I have worked with SQL Server, SQL Azure, mySql and seen a little bit of everything over the years. In this presentation I will provide some tips for how developers on how to find issues with their SQL databases and afterwards optimize the SQL server databases to give a better performance

GraphQL & Apollo – Get what you want, and get help getting it

Getting data from a backend service and figuring out what kind of data model you get can be such a drag in conventional rest. This can be solved by using the new kid on the block. GraphQL. You get only the data you want, and you have amazing tooling to help you get it. This talk will show an Apollo Graphql Stack from backend to frontend, how I got started in a major project, and how Apollo helped me see the light of GraphQL
