Summary : What Every Hacker Used to Know, a walk down history lane
The audience will learn about the origin of some terms and usage of today's world, and where these concepts have risen from. building on that I will introduce some older programming concepts, older languages and describe the thinking behind them - and how they are relevant for today. in conclusion, I will try to educate about the value of better understanding what was created and not just use the newest shining thing (without critically evaluating it). The talk will review some common terms and their origin (e.g. "Core"), some older concepts that were abandoned and programming languages based on concepts that re-emerging today. some of the research behind this talk is based on interviews, open sourced information and other related talks.
