All through the month we’re hosting 10 tech talks, delivered by some of our best-and-brightest technologists in India. Each of them will be taking you through different topics, ranging from Distributed Delivery and XR, to Security and Navigating Ambiguity.
Agenda | Week 2
Time Clock and ordering of events in cloud-scale systems
Thursday | October 14 | 12pm - 1pm IST
Speaker: Unmesh Joshi
When values are stored across multiple servers, there needs to be a way to know which values were stored before the other. The system timestamp can not be used, because the wall clocks are not monotonic and clock values from two different servers should not be compared.
All distributed data systems use Logical clocks to allow the ordering of events. We will look at various types of logical clocks and how they are used in the distributed data systems to decide the ordering of events.
Agenda | Week 3
Using XR in building autonomous vehicles
Wednesday| October 20 | 3pm - 5pm IST
Speaker: Raju Kandasamy, Kuldeep Singh
XR is a technology that provides awesome user experience and as well the tools that are used to build XR are capable of providing simulation environments needed to train autonomous vehicles without needing to build the actual hardware and fake environment. Setting-up environments and parameterizing the content of the environments shall be automated. Here in this master class we see 2 such use cases
Training a car to do autonomous parking using simulation
Training a Robot arm to Pick & Place object using simulation
Demystifying product strategy
Friday | October 22 | 12pm - 1pm IST
Speaker: Madhubala Mukthinutalapati, Jyothi Pujari
Product Strategy is the key cornerstone and devising it right is crucial for creating a successful product. This talk focuses on enumerating the building blocks of a Product Strategy and explains each of it with the help of a case study. A handy Mural template is also shared to put this into action and to create your own Product Strategy.
Agenda | Week 4
Evolution of infrastructure in 20 years
Monday | October 25 | 4pm - 5pm IST
Speaker: Krishnaswamy Subramanian
This session will be about how infrastructure has involved from dial-up to fibre internet along with hardware and software evolution over time. You will learn provisioning and configuring new age immutable cloud infrastructure going live from a clean slate in minutes with production-grade security by following all the engineering best practices such as unit testing / TDD, clean code even for infrastructure code.
