Strange Loop is an in-person and virtual conference that brings together the developers and thinkers building tomorrow's technology in fields such as emerging languages, alternative databases, concurrency, distributed systems, security, and the web. The event is coming up in just a few days (September 22 - September 24) and we hope to see you there in St. Louis, MO both in-person or virtually!

Strange Loop Sessions - Our Picks

We understand it may be overwhelming to attend a 3-day conference when there are so many different speaking sessions to choose from. To start off, here are a few of the sessions DataSet is excited to attend:

The Secure Software Supply Chain with Kelsey Hightower, Principal Engineer at Google + Kubernetes Evangelist

Saturday, Sept 24

After decades of gluing together software from a random set of libraries and frameworks, industry wide attacks on the software supply chain have proven this approach is unsustainable, and it's time to shift our thinking on how we write and ship software. In this session we will explore the various tools used to secure the software supply chain, and through a collection of live demos, learn how to put them to use in the real world.

Data-Driven Investigation In Defense of Human Rights with Christo Buschek, Pulitzer Winning Journalist

Friday, Sept 23

Over the last few years, data-driven investigation as a field has gained ground. It has become an essential aspect of journalists' daily work and human rights defenders worldwide. Data-driven investigations bring together a wide variety of disciplines and techniques. They combine code, design, and analysis and thus can not only extend previous forms of research but also develop and execute entirely new methodologies. Learn different aspects of data-driven methods and their opportunities for systematic investigations and interdisciplinary collaborations.

Machine Learning for Developer Productivity with Satish Chandra, Software Engineer at Meta

Friday, Sept 23

The availability of large code corpora has made it possible to build innovative software productivity tools that use machine learning, paving way for capabilities that were not possible with static analysis technology. In this talk, Satish will provide an overview of this area, and include his industry experiences.

These are a few of the speakers you will engage with and hear from over the course of 3 days. Check out the full schedule here and create your own itinerary! If you need a break in-between sessions, join us at the DataSet booth.
