Slow Food, Slow Code

  • Latuszek G.

Have you met term slow-food?. Look at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Slow_Food. It came to life as reaction for fast-food. Its manifesto is "everyone has the right to good, clean and fair food" (Carlo Petrini - Slow Food Founder & President). How it maps to software engineering, especially test automation? I'm sure you have met fast-code. Not in terms of execution speed but code created "in hurry". You know it by first glimpse at source code: shortcuts, hardcodes, etc. An opposition to such one is what I call slow-code - code that you might be proud of, code that you look at and you taste it. The presentation will discuss aspects related to: - Forces causing "fast-code" - Strategies for developing slow-code - When/where slow-code is applicable/not applicable - Examples that show what good/clean/fair means for slow-code

A Cloud Native Approach to 5G Network Slicing

  • Francini A.
  • Miller R.
  • Sharma S.

5G networks will have to support a set of very diverse and often extreme requirements. Network slicing offers an effective way to unlock the full potential of 5G networks and meet those requirements on a shared network infrastructure. This paper presents a cloud native approach to network slicing. The cloud ...

  • Wang H.
  • Wu Q.

Based on the physical model of a bulk reflective semiconductor optical amplifier (RSOA) used as a modulator in radio over fiber (RoF) links, the distributions of carrier density, signal photon density, and amplified spontaneous emission photon density are demonstrated. One of limits in the use of RSOA is the lower ...

How to preserve users' privacy while supporting high-utility analytics for low-latency stream processing? To answer this question: we describe the design, implementation and evaluation of PRIVAPPROX, a data analytics system for privacy-preserving stream processing. PRIVAPPROX provides three properties: (i) Privacy: zero-knowledge privacy (ezk) guarantees for users, a privacy bound tighter ...
