10.05am - 10.45am Adventures in App-App Land. What are Apps like behind the scenes? How do GUIs compare to real life?  Do the installers create more drama behind the scenes than dialog on-screen?  How can a Com Interface find work? No matter how you want to cut it, it is all about the Apps. You can slice, you can layer, you can jamb them all in a tight little box.  But if you don’t know how to understand what the Apps are made of you are heading for trouble.  I’ll provide a look into Applications and how they integrate.  Much of the information will be a fresh take adapted from a new book I’m working on.

How Websites Steal Your Machine's Resources - Browser Performance Analyzed. Browsers have come a long way. What started as simple applications for the display of text and the odd image has turned into a platform for web apps. One could say browsers have become operating systems in their own right. The average end user easily juggles a few dozen browser tabs without blinking an eye. This corresponds to an equally large number of web apps running concurrently - on your machines, consuming your machines' resources! High time we take a good look at how browsers utilize system resources, how different browsers stack up against each other and whether adding a GPU helps reduce overall load.
In this session you will learn:
- How and why browsers significantly impact performance
- Which browsers are best for user density
- What can be done to reduce browser resource footprint

Dell Server and Citrix XenServer - Octoblu Integration.  Automated monitoring, decision-making and control are essential elements of a robust and agile computing environment. Being able to trigger intelligent responses to events based on heuristics will enable optimized control of a server environment. Full XenServer control via Octoblu has been achieved, allowing the input and secure execution of CLI "xe" commands as well as pre-defined batch jobs. I will also cover the current status of my explorations of using Dell server internals obtained via SNMP to monitor the physical state of Dell servers and the subsequent processing and analysis to automatically react to hardware issues. Combining these metrics allows the creation of alerts and reactions to possible server failures with predetermined proactive and reactive procedures.

Anatomy of how a company got hacked - part DEUX. Security is a current topic (that should be) on everyone’s agenda: your systems, data, identity and IPO are at risk! In order to understand how to protect yourself against hackers you need to understand how hackers think and how they operate.
 In this session Geert Braakhekke and Remko Weijnen will present the analysis of a fictional attack against a car company where hackers managed to capture credentials, bypass multifactor authentication and hack one of the company’s products. Hackers used interesting technology such as a USB device that emulates a keyboard, GPU technology to crack hashes and smartcard emulators. Emphasis in the session will be to live demo the technologies used rather than Powerpoint them.

How Websites Steal Your Machine's Resources - Browser Performance Analyzed. Browsers have come a long way. What started as simple applications for the display of text and the odd image has turned into a platform for web apps. One could say browsers have become operating systems in their own right. The average end user easily juggles a few dozen browser tabs without blinking an eye. This corresponds to an equally large number of web apps running concurrently - on your machines, consuming your machines' resources! High time we take a good look at how browsers utilize system resources, how different browsers stack up against each other and whether adding a GPU helps reduce overall load. In this session you will learn:

- How and why browsers significantly impact performance
- Which browsers are best for user density
- What can be done to reduce browser resource footprint

Automating Citrix NetScaler Deployments & Configurations from the RES ONE Services Store. This is an  automation-oriented technical session that outlines how we can use RES ONE Automation and PowerShell to fully automate the deployment and configuration of Citrix NetScaler’s from scratch until a fully configured and ready to use state, and then publish this automation as a reusable service in the RES ONE Services store.
