workshop 15:45 - 17:15 : Kefir workshop
Algoldor from the food hacking base will tell us everything about kefir, the bacteria culture that creates fermented probiotic milk products which are good for the digestion. Based on research it also supports your immunity system, lowers risks of variety of cancers and allergy reactions. You will taste different products (drinks, cheese), take a closer look to the bacteria culture, learn how take properly care of it and take home some culture and the manual so you can continue to do this at home or at your local hackerspace. Biotechnologist and fermentologist Algoldor will teach you step for step and also chat about various alternative usages. Since fermenting processes keep continuing, we will cook something on Saturday, taste it and return on sunday to study the differences (come after the Kombucha workshop). This workshop is donation based (PWYW) since Algoldor will be coming all the way from France to give this workshop and will provide the culture, ingredients and drinks.

talk 15:45 - 16:45 : Hardware-Based Trusted Computing from an Attack/Defense Perspective
Protected module architectures (PMAs) are a new brand of security architectures whose main objective is to support the secure isolated execution of software modules with a minimal Trusted Computing Base (TCB). Several prototypes for embedded systems, and also the Software Guard eXtensions (SGX) included in recent Intel x86 processors, ensure isolation with a hardware-only TCB. This talk, based on my ongoing PhD research, highlights two complementary lines of PMA research. On the one hand, I will introduce the free/open-source Sancus hardware-level PMA and embedded (automotive) security applications we are actively developing. On the other hand, I will overview our recent research efforts on side-channel attacks against off-the-shelf Intel SGX platforms.
talk 17:00 - 18:00 : DevOps: Managing the technical quality side of big projects
We are creating more complex projects than ever. Managing the technical quality of projects where multiple people work on can be a daunting task. Luckily a few years ago a new concept emerged: Devops. Devops is about combining multiple teams (mostly Developers and Operators) to enable the rapid development and evolution of products and services; and reduce the risk, improve the quality and reduce costs of building those projects. The Devops community also utilizes a lot of tools. Ever heard about Jenkins? Always wanted to know what this GIT is? This session will bring clarity in all the fancy buzzwords.
