On June 2, 2017, we got an awesome guest speaker at our HackerTalk - Aubrey de Grey, the Chief Science Officer and Co-Founder of the SENS Research Foundation. The foundation’s stated goal is to transform the way the world researches and treats age-related disease. Aubrey provocatively proposes that the first human beings who will live to 1,000 years old have already been born.

Even though machines are taking over more jobs that previously have been executed by humans, this development also bears a lot of opportunities for us, because we are still a valuable workforce. Nevertheless, the population declines and becomes increasingly older and many exciting jobs still remain that only someone made out of flesh and blood can do best. At the same time, the human workforce is decreasing. This is where intelligent machines can steer demographic changes towards our benefit. Claudia’s article explains why we should embrace the opportunities created by the Second Machine Age.

Claudia Dietze - columnist for the online magazine SAAL ZWEI - writes exclusively about topics that move her in her daily life as top executive. Today: Man muss kein Programmierer sein, um Software zu entwickeln.

Not so long ago, not many job positions were offered for non-engineers in the digital industry. This has changed immensely. More and more jobs are created, where even a university degree in archaeology, history, or philosophy will take you a long way in the digital industry. Here, it is more important to understand different things in context and to question them. The second machine age will not only wipe out jobs but it will bring forth many and entirely new jobs. Nevertheless - and this may be the bad news for people with an educational background in humanities - at the same time, it won’t hurt if one is good in mathematics …

Imagine the European Union builds its IT infrastructure based on free software. Imagine European member states trade information with the help of open standards and share their software. Imagine municipalities and city councils profit from decentralized and collaborative software based on free software licenses. Imagine Europeans are no longer forced to use proprietary software any longer.

That is the goal of the FSFE. The FSFE Summit is the general assembly that unites FSFE members and supporters from all over Europe.

As a long-term FSFE donor, freiheit.com is represented through its founder Stefan Richter. In his talk Free software is now the default choice for the digital transformation, Stefan speaks about free software as a standardized option within all major digitalization projects and Internet companies and offers basic decision guidelines for entrepreneurs, which he gathers from twenty years of personal experience.

Our founder Stefan Richter organizes the first Live Coding Meetup in Hamburg. On May 9, 2016, we will start off the Meetup with parser combinators in Haskell. Alex Biehl is going to present the basic concept and use of parser combinators and interactively build a JSON parser and develop a personal parser combinators library on the beamer. Parsers are used almost everywhere: HTML pages in browsers, JSON, or other small, self-defined format, which need to be assembled logically for processing, in order to be mapped onto data structures. Should a library - that gets the job done - not exist, the developer must build a parser manually. The effort to use established tools such as Yacc or ANTLR is fairly high, which is why it is sometimes obvious to use the quick and dirty solution via string operation and/or standard term. In short, both comprehensibility and maintainability suffer immensely. Parser combinators are a great answer: They allow construction of complicated parsers through the combination of small, simple parsers.

Thomas Storck - CIO METRO Cash & Carry - knows the necessity of the digital transformation. He was the driving force behind building a food delivery software to optimize his customer’s needs. METRO is at the very top of Europe’s online retailers, counting more than 3 billion euros in revenue within the food delivery business of online orders. A strong technology partner stands behind making the first step towards the future. Together with freiheit.com and the company’s founder Stefan Richter, he develops new solutions and excellent software on the basis of cloud computing, microservices, and browser-based, innovative apps. At the code.talks commerce special 2016 in Berlin both present possible, arising challenges during the development of the food delivery software for 25 different countries and why Java 8 and JavaScript but also Go, Clojure and ClojureScript play an important role.

The slideshow in the series “Chefbüro” of the German magazine “WirtschaftsWoche” (14/2016), offers us a glimpse into the offices of the best managers. Throughout the three open-spaced, modern floors of the software company freiheit.com, located in the vibrant borough St. Pauli, Claudia shows how freiheit.com’s hacker culture comes to life in the office: “German Engineering meets Silicon Valley”. The mechanical model ship displayed on Claudia’s sideboard is a gift given to her by the late NASA pioneer Prof. Dr. Jesco Freiherr von Puttkamer. It perfectly displays how both worlds of “future and tradition” can go hand in hand. “The best way to predict the future is to invent it.” (Alan Kay)

Can we build an intelligent software agent, who portrays a perfect project manager? A bot who delivers information in the right time to the right people and who is both analyzer and messenger as well as helpful assistant at the same time? In September 2015, Stefan Richter speaks at the fifth code.talks conference about the usage of intelligent agents within software development.

With his presentation “Writing Simple, Readable and Robust Code: Examples in Java, Clojure and Go” Stefan Richter shows us with the help of one example three solution approaches in three different languages. In the following presentation, Java and Clojure can be viewed; Go is a live coding experiment, therefore not documented.

Since freiheit.com was founded, we have built our own tools adopting early techniques of AI and Machine Learning, helping us to effectively and efficiently manage software projects: from early XMPP bots over prolog backend and Rete algorithm-based production systems for a rule-based expert system for task management written in Clojure.

    The LinuxTag is a fantastic event for programmers and free software activists. Already in 2005, Stefan has expressed interest in Objective-C and GNUstep environment. But a pet project was missing in order to learn the language. The outcome was a presentation at the LinuxTag about algorithms in Objective-C, with which Guile Scheme programs for GNU Robot could genetically be optimized.
