Even if you are successful using open source sofware, there's something special about hardware: It's physical. You can touch it. You build it (not compile it). This is a talk about the Arduino open source physical computing platform; a cheap, useful, fun micro-controller ... and it's loads of fun, even if you break into a cold sweat at the thought of picking up a soldering iron.

CoffeeScript is a little language that compiles into JavaScript. It's a thought experiment that aims to test how far we can stretch JavaScript semantics without adding any runtime libraries or outputting reams of generated code. Recommended for folks who are interested in languages that run in the browser as well as the server. Read more.

Rails has reached a degree of popularity among web developers, so there's a lot of Rails 2.x series code floating around. Of course, once Rails 3 is released, it's not like these apps will explode, ceasing to function in an any meaningful way, but it would be nice to get all the new hotness that this release brings.

The presentation shows how Android applications can be cross-compiled to the iPhone. Only knowledge of Android's SDK is required. The cross-compiler will automatically generate an iPhone version. This approach promises the "Write-once, run anywhere" paradigm for smart phone platforms. Read more.

Testing is JavaScript's Achilles' heel: the language is powerful with good library support, but testing practices are cumbersome to non-existent. This talk demonstrates a set of tools that make test/behavior driven development in JavaScript as quick and effective as Java, Ruby, or Python, including aspects unique to JavaScript such as the browser environment and asynchronous programming.
