February 11th 2020 – MUG Meeting
We meet at 6:30pm on the second Tuesday of each month at the Farmington Community Library.
The Various and Wonderful Laws of Computing
No, this is not a talk about digital jurisprudence, rather it is a detailed set of seminal observations on the various trends we have experienced in the last 50 years of computing. Of course the most famous one of them all is the classic Moore’s Law, while not an actual law, has had an astounding effect on all of mankind since the invention of the microprocessor.
In this 90-minute talk Sharan Kalwani will point out the different advances in computing, be it networking, storage, connectivity, semiconductors, processing power, energy trends, etc. He will list the eponymous persons associated with each specific law, relationship, or trend and what implications they have for us all.
To the best of the speakers knowledge, such a talk has not been conducted anywhere else before and so you will get to enjoy an original, as well as a uniquely holistic perspective on the vast phenomena we call computing.
A well seasoned scientifc, technical and computing professional, Sharan Kalwani has spent over 20+ years implementing many new and pioneering technologies from operating systems (*nix) , high performance computing (Cray, SGI, modern day clusters), engineering applications (CAE/CFD simulations), optimization, networking (TCP/IP, Infiniband), operations (ITIL, ITSM), scientific domain (BioInformatics), and project management. A successful speaker and author, Sharan looks to increase the professional approach of every individual he interacts with. He enjoys teaching, contributing to STEM activities and publishing. He is a senior member of IEEE, ACM, Emeritus member of Michigan!/usr/group. He is currently the Chair of the IEEE SE Michigan Education Society Chapter since 2017.
Sharan has recently started doing custom onsite open source training - either individual or at the group level on topics such as multi core computing, programming in C, Python, Data Science, Machine Learning, etc. He also does topics such as SoftSkills, Agile Methods and Root Cause Analysis, among others.
Plus we'll have our regular features: Jobs Looking for People, People Looking for Jobs, and much more! We'll also be meeting for dinner at the Buddy's Pizza in Novi (44225 W 12 Mile Road, Novi, MI 48377) after the meeting.
