Ray-tracers can draw beautiful, detailed computer-generated scenes, but they can take hours (or days!) to draw one frame. So how do video games draw 3D scenes when they have less than 30 milliseconds to output a frame? This talk draws back the curtain on systems like OpenGL and DirectX, to show you how they work under the hood.

Apple is a company whose history is well-documented. However, emphasis tends to be put on the company's time under the leadership of Steve Jobs. In this talk we'll be discussing Apple under the tenure of CEOs John Sculley, Michael Spindler, and Gil Amelio, and the causes of its decline in the 1990s.

In the 1950s, languages such as COBOL and FORTRAN were a refreshing change from everything being written in assembler. Today they're seen as scary old junk, but that "old junk" still keeps a lot of the world running. (Yes, this talk is intended to be at least partially humorous... Come on, it's a talk about COBOL in 2016.)
