talks, posters, presentations


I've presented at a wide range of events over the last few years, and most of them are listed here. For publications, see my ORCID or Google Scholar pages.

2020

PyCon US went virtual this year, but was still a major event. At the Language Summit I proposed writing property-based tests for CPython (demo here), which was featured on lwn.net, and gave a lightning talk on improving SyntaxError for novices. I also helped organise the mentored sprints, as well as mentoring new contributors on the day.

I was invited to the Moscow Python conference, and gave my talk online.

I have an online poster for the SciPy conference. We hope to get our online Hypothesis tutorial working by July, with some specialist material for a scientific audience.

2019

I was rather busy at PyCon US, where among other things I presented a tutorial, talk, and poster (pdf) about 'escaping from auto-manual testing' with Hypothesis. I also attended the Language Summit, spoke at the maintainers summit, and led teams at both the sprints and mentored sprints. It was a fantastic - and very intense - nine days.

At EAGx Sydney, I posed 'some questions for 21st century machines' based on my work at the Autonomy, Agency, and Assurance Institute.

At PyCon Australia I presented one of the inaugural 'deep dive' talks, on Sufficiently Advanced Testing. I think this is my best technical talk to date, and wrote up a hyperlinked transcript for this site.

At SciPy US, I gave a talk and taught a workshop on advanced testing for scientists and developers of data science tools, which I later reprised in Spain for EuroSciPy (talk, tutorial). The material for my 2019 tutorial is open source and available here.

2018

At the European Union's Future in the Making conference, I presented a poster about 3Ai's Collaboratoria - immersive experiences bringing togther researchers, scholars and practitioners.

At PyCon Asia-Pacific, I taught a workshop on property-based testing and other insecticides. At the inaugural PyLondinium, I gave a talk about property-based testing (video) ...and an updated version at PyCon Australia.

2017

I presented my Honours research project at the annual conference of the Australian Meteorological and Oceanographic Society. My talk won a student presentation prize, and my poster was also well received. My full Honours thesis can be read here.
