Next Friday, Lebanese programmers will present the following talks:

No Excuses: Start Coding – Marc Hayek
A talk aimed at people considering a career in software but are too afraid to start or don't know where to begin.

Red, Green, GO! – Constantine Nicolaou
An introduction to the Go programming language and why it is important to give it some attention

A Quick Introduction to BDD in Ruby – Youssef Chaker
A real world scenario of how to develop software using Behavior Driven Development, and how it works.

Teamwork in Software – Abdallah Chamas
A discussion on the importance of etiquette and teamwork and the difference between a senior developer and a team lead.

The Culture, Technology, Art, Design and Politics of Programming Languages – Ramsey Nasser
How do we design a programing experience that is sustainable and inclusive to all? Using what we’ve learned from the past fifty years of computing, what is the next step forward?

Infinite Data Structures –  Marc Farra
A talk addressing the implementation of lazy evaluation in JavaScript. It provides an explanation of infinite sequences called "streams" and presents some cool use cases.

The Facebook Immune System – Ziad Traboulsi
A description of the systems used by Facebook to protect their 1.2 billion users.

How I found e to 5,083,139 digits – George Zakhour
George exploited every hardware in his computer to find e, the mathematical constant, in under 2 hours. He shares with us his excitement and findings.

As always, these short talks are catered to a technical audience, so expect them to dive into code. However, programmers from all levels are welcome, so don't be shy, show up.

Friday, December 27 at 7:15 PM
An-Nahar building (near the central bank),
Hamra main street.
