Adrian Caliman (PitechPlus) – Function Calling Strategies: Conversations with Your Live Data

Abstract: This workshop delves into leveraging Function Calling—a powerful feature of OpenAI models such as GPT-4 and GPT-3.5 Turbo—to facilitate natural conversations with our data. Participants will explore the immense potential of connecting GPT models with live data by programmatically interacting with them, gaining insights into triggering custom operations on our end. Throughout the session, attendees will understand how to integrate OpenAI models into data workflows and obtain data-driven insights. We will imagine a data store and show how we can obtain complex information by asking for it in plain English.

Kiril Videlov (GitButler) – Iterating on Version Control

Abstract: Git is the de facto standard for moving code between developers and computers alike. Every programmer learns it, and applications and tools integrate with it. But have we actually reached peak version control? Git was first designed for a workflow very different from what developers use today, and has changed very little since its inception. In this talk, Kiril will discuss iterating on the very tool we as developers use for iterating — our version control.

Scott Chacon (GitButler) – Back to First Principles & Reimagining Everything from Product to the Workplace

Abstract: In the age of universal high-speed internet, traditional business norms are rapidly becoming outdated. This presentation explores the transformative potential of revisiting first principles, challenging ingrained business lessons. With global connectivity, we delve into reimagining everything, from product development to the very structure of the workplace. Join us in unlocking the power to shape a visionary future by embracing the tools of the digital age and implementing innovative strategies.

15:50 - 16:20
Matt Hazley (Dyson) – What’s the Matter? (The Path to Smart Home Ubiquity)

Abstract: This talk attempts to look at the state of Smart Home at the turn of the decade before addressing the shift towards a ubiquitous protocol called Matter. It attempts to educate the listener as to how this protocol came to be, how it is used and how it works technically to achieve its goal. The talk then goes on to address how I became a contributor to Matter, the work that was carried out and the challenges we faced while working on it, touching on such things as company cultures, working with open source, imposter syndrome, the strength of communities and more.
