Creating value by sharing knowledge
tretton37 unveils its first ever day long conference open to the public, featuring 7 impressive speakers and 7 illuminating sessions.
Östergatan 7, Malmö
Foo Café is an independent meeting place for developers and those in the IT industry who are interested in coming together to share their knowledge and experiences. Instead of Foo Café’s normal venue at Media Evolution, this event will be held at St Gertrud.
Saturday, 20 October, 2012
The day kicks off at 08:00 and includes breaks and lunch in a thoughtfully planned schedule that will allow attendees time to meet and refuel, in order to maximize this day of power learning.
We are happy to announce that Leetspeak has coupled up with business intelligence powerhouse QlikTech, who has signed on to be the exclusive sponsor for this event.
What you need to know, now
This event is limited to 150 places. It is vital to reserve your place now if you plan on joining us, and we hope you will! The cost is set at a reasonable rate just to cover expenses (200SEK). Visit the above link to sign yourself up for this dynamic day of learning.
Anyone interested in learning
.NET developers who look beyond the .NET framework. Ambitious knowledge workers that might not have the resources to attend expensive learning events during the week. So it’s cheap and it’s on a Saturday.
The Leetspeak Story
Let’s talk leetspeak.
Leetspeak is a conference born out of the desire to bring hardcore technical and inspiring content to those who need to know. Launched this year by the fast growing knowledge based firm, tretton37, it’s an event that is aimed at developers who are excited to stay at the forefront of the knowledge game, with a spotlight on the .NET developer who knows there’s honey to be had beyond the domain framework.
_Community_ is a cornerstone of the tretton37 mentality and Leetspeak is one way in which the organization is reaching out to to fellow developers who want to connect and learn from one another in the region and beyond. Since its inception, the company has hosted regular in-house evening seminars. As tretton37 is dedicated to promoting a mindful ecosystem within the .NET domain, the next natural step in the firm’s evolution is to create an event open to the community it is naturally connected with. And to push things just a little bit further… because often the best kind of learning occurs when we step outside of our domain and comfort zone.
What an attendee can expect
Those attending the conference can expect a few things: first and foremost, the sessions will provide ideas and tools that can be put into a developer’s daily work. They can expect a line up of excellent speakers who are masters in their fields. They can expect to meet new people who share their passion, and all of this will be happening in a neutral and independent environment, Foo Café, an inititave supported by tretton37 since its inception.
Leetspeak is aimed at developers who want to improve their craft. The focus is on .NET but with the understanding that the best tool to solve a problem may lie outside oft he framework.
About Foo Cafe…
Established also in 2012, Foo Café is a natural partner for Leetspeak. Foo was founded by Michael Tiberg, who, for 7 years was the man behind SW developer conference, Øredev, and is passionate and driven to create a place where minds can meet in a fun and dynamic space. Foo Café is graciously hosted by Media Evolution, another organization that is expanding in all things media, a place that nurtures creativity.

Developers: The Prima Donnas of the 21st Century
We are developers. We are creators. We are misunderstood by customers, by managers and even co-workers, we are undervalued and often overworked. People don’t appreciate the value we put in our craft and and our drive for innovation. We are central to business in the 21st century yet people don’t appreciate us! ” Of course you are, but you also forgot to mention: You suck at communication. You often put business at risk based on personal ambitions and waste serious amounts of time trying to improve and discuss the wrong things, all in the name of the next great thing that’s going to solve it all. You’ve completely forgotten the plot! Don’t believe me? Why don’t you come along to this talk and get a wake up call. But don’t expect to be treated nicely.

Asymptotics and Algorithms – What You’ve Forgotten Since University
This presentation will be revision for some and new for others. In it we’ll cover the process of calculating which algorithm is more efficient than another. This seems to be a forgotten skill since the advent of managed environments like the JVM and .Net, we assume that the environment knows best, but does it? I’ll show you how to calculate algorithm efficiency and demonstrate why it’s still important in the age of .Net

Why you should talk to strangers
You know how your mother told you to never talk to strangers? Well, she was wrong. Not talking to strangers means never leaving your comfort zone, never exploring anything new and never learning anything beyond that what is familiar – .NET.
In this talk we explore how being unfaithful to .NET will make you a better .NET developer; how other languages and other ways of thinking will give you an competitive edge over your peers.

Grokking Git by seeing it
Unless you’ve being living under a rock for the past couple of years, chances are you’ve already heard about a distributed source control system called Git, developed by Linux creator Linus Torvalds. I’m also pretty sure that what you’ve heard are some pretty enthusiastic comments, describing Git as “awesome” or “revolutionary”.
“But it’s version control, for crying out loud”. What’s the big deal?
If that’s your response, I totally get you. It’s hard to be excited about a version control tool without really knowing what exactly is that sets it apart from all the others that you’ve likely seen in the past.
It may be that you’ve already been using Git for a while to collaborate on some open source project or even at work. You know how to commit files, create branches and merge your work with others. If that’s the case, believe me, you’ve only barely scratched the surface of it.
In this session I’ll teach you the Git zen from the inside out. Working out of real world scenarios, I’ll walk you through Git’s core concepts and building blocks, building our way up to more advanced features. And I’ll do it by showing you graphically what happens under the covers every time you fire a Git command. It’s my belief that this kind of deep understanding of Git’s inner workings is the key to unlock its true power: taking control of your history.
So, if you are a visual learner with an urge to find out what the Git fuzz is all about, or you want to know how to take your existing Git skills to the next level, come to this session and literally see it for yourself.
