On the 9th of May we hosted a Tech Talk in the Lounge of our Bucharest office, and the speaker was  Philip Stutz, Research Assistant at the University of Zurich.

Signal/Collect is a programming model with the following strengths:

  • Expressive enough to tersely formulate a broad range of graph algorithms
  • Can define both synchronous and dataflow-like asynchronous computations
  • Straightforward to parallelize/distribute
Philip introduced us in the Graph world and continued to climb the stairs of knowledge with us, topping it up with a live demo.

Some examples and tutorials together with a more stable version of Signal/Collect are available @ www.signalcollect.com, while the current development happens @ https://github.com/uzh/signal-collect.

We had a lovely crowd, and we received good feedback as you can see on our Meetup page.

See you next time!

We used the open sourced reveal.js to make HTML5 based slides, and hosted the slides by node.js, and if you want to control the slides remotely with your smartphone, then socket.io is the node.js plugin you will need.
