Lecture and borrel TNO

Tue 21 June, 15:00, room TBA

Met continuous delivery zorg je ervoor dat je software snel naar een ontwikkel- en productieomgeving brengt. Een bekend voorbeeld is Instagram, dat tot 50 keer per dag zijn software naar productie lanceert. Continuous delivery wordt steeds meer toegepast en de ontwikkelingen staan niet stil. Hetzelfde geld voor gecontaineriseerde software, waarbij je een micro-service architectuur toepast en kleine stukjes software ontwikkeld die snel te deployen zijn en makkelijk te verplaatsen zijn van bijvoorbeeld je (ontwikkel)laptop naar uiteindelijk productie. Hoe combineer je deze twee ontwikkelingen?

Tijdens deze presentatie laat TNO een nieuwe methode zien waarbij GitLab Runners ingezet worden om volledig automatisch Docker containers te bouwen en richting een ontwikkel- en productie-omgeving te deployen, gebruik makend van best practices rondom continuous delivery.

Na de lezing is er een gratis borrel voor de aanwezigen.

Multitasking Symposium

Thu 23 June, 11:00–17:00, Het Kasteel (Melkweg 1)

Multitasking becomes ever more pervasive in everyday life. It is therefore important to have a better understanding of how the human brain processes multiple tasks. This can help us predict whether any given combination of tasks go well together. Furthermore it is important to know the nature of choice in multitasking: when do people choose to take on a secondary task, or decide to switch from one task to another. A better understanding can help to improve human-computer interaction, and to make people aware of how they can improve their own multitasking.

The symposium features a series of talks by international experts in the field and will be concluded with a panel-discussion around the question of what we have learned from research on multitasking and interruptions so far.
