Talk Details

🎤 How encourage teenage girl to programming

(15m) Lately, I am teaching Python programming to a thirteen-year-old girl. She didn't know pretty much about mathematics, even matrix. However, she chose game programming for her career and her first game is finished. I want to talk about my experience and challenges to teach a teenager. Also, Shahgol (the teenager) will talk about the challenge she had faced.

About Samira Korani

I am Samira, I have been working as a python developer since 2011. Last year, I have decided to get back to academia, right now I am a computer science Ph.D. student at Galway university.

🎤 Supply Chain Security in OSS

(15 mins) A vulnerability in Log4J, a popular open source software project, exposed critical digital infrastructure to remote code execution attacks. This prompted the US Government to engage big tech, infosec professionals, and open source organizations to come together to help secure open source software.
What's a software supply chain and how can it be attacked. Why is OSS being targeted and what are the methods to protect it?
I wrote a blog on this:
