Dan North: "Awk" sed Vi, "Ar" sed Ed

Thus begins an old, and sadly lost in the mists of Usenet, love story about Vi and Ed (who becomes her "ex"), told entirely in Unix commands. I had no idea when I started learning these arcane (guess how the "dd" command got its name) and cryptic (what about "grep"?) Unix commands how incredibly useful they would become over the next two decades. If your primary OS is Linux or OSX on the desktop, and maybe iOS or Android on the move, you'll find this 40-something year joke ("Unix" itself was a bad pun) has managed to embed itself into every facet of your technological life.

Being comfortable at a shell prompt and having a healthy working knowledge of Unix commands and regular expressions will give you a whole new level of capability. In this fun talk I'll introduce a few commands and shell tricks you should have in your back pocket, and show you how to start taking control of your operating system. If you ask nicely I'll even tell you about the production system I wrote using Makefiles.

Martin Westergaard Lassen: Typeless writing in a strong typed world

Java developers always tend to declare types themselves. Even when using other APIs where types already have been declared. Do we really need to do this redundant work over and over again?
This is an induction to my typeless Java coding lifestyle.
