Come hear David Chandler from Google discuss how startups can use Google App Engine and Google Web Toolkit. Learn how these tools can help you build optimized and scalable web applications.

Google App Engine enables you to build web applications on the same scalable systems that power Google applications. App Engine applications are easy to build, easy to maintain, and easy to scale as your traffic and data storage needs grow. With App Engine, there are no servers to maintain: You just
upload your application, and it’s ready to serve to your users.

Introduction to Haskell

University Center 485

This talk will give an informal introduction to the functional programming language Haskell.

The key points are:

Haskell is functional. This means that most functions in Haskell are functions in the ordinary mathematical sense. A function takes an argument and returns a value that depends only on the value of argument; functions don't manipulate or depend on a mutable hidden state.

Speaker's Bio: 

Dr. Stewart earned a Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from the University of Illinois in 1996. His research interests include numerical analysis, numerical linear algebra, and scientific computing.

Theft and corruption of confidential information located within the cyber realm is on the rise due to the current economic state and lack of cyber security knowledge amongst society. Every 6 seconds an individual’s computer is being hacked into and 90% of Fortune 500 networks have been hacked. Both businesses and individuals need to become aware of the facts surrounding computer security, cyber extortion, identity theft, loss prevention, computer fraud, penetration testing, and computer surveillance.

Speaker's Bio: 

Cyber security expert Greg Evans is one of the nation’s leaders in hi-tech computer security and is recognized as a leader in computer security. On The History Channel’s series, Modern Marvels, he demonstrated the often-startling capabilities of computer surveillance and the potential for destruction at the hands of cyber-terrorists, showed how spyware works, and taught viewers how to protect their wireless networks.
