Hi,

We at ThoughtWorks are delighted to invite you to our latest GeekNight. An exciting talk about cutting edge technology and tons of learning await you! You also get to meet like-minded geeks in a space that encourages open discussions with fellow technologists.

Concurrency idioms such as locks and monitors are well understood. However, building highly concurrent systems is a black art; the finer the grain of sharing and locking, the more error-prone the system, and difficult to diagnose. The situation is much worse in multi-processor systems, even in languages like Java with well-defined memory model semantics.
This talk argues for a fundamentally different way of building highly concurrent systems, be they device drivers or servers. It argues for ultra-lightweight threads with isolated heaps and stacks, communicating with each other purely through messages, and not via modifying shared data structures. This notion is not new by any means, but the devil is in the details.
Sriram will present Kilim, a framework in Java that provides these features, along with guaranteeing low level safety at compile time via a type system, and contrast it to languages such as Erlang and Go

Dear Volunteers,

Our deep appreciation to all of you who have contributed to the Bala Janaagraha programme over the years! It is another year and our targets have been set higher. We are looking forward to your continued support going forward. For those of you who are new to the Bala Janaagraha programme, a brief description follows.

Janaagraha’s Bala Janaagraha is a uniquely designed citizenship education programme that is aimed at empowering children with the knowledge, skills and values necessary to develop a deep sense of ownership and responsibility towards their society. The programme demystifies local government, introduces the political relevance of the ward and stresses the need for citizen participation in local governance. It is an interactive, activity-based programme which engages the children in the exploration of civic issues directly related to their neighbourhood with the help of community volunteers along with the teachers through classroom sessions and projects. This interaction enables students to understand the idea of grassroots engagement in a democracy.

It is a structured programme conducted from June to January and requires;

One hour per week for the classroom sessions between July and December
Providing guidance to children during Civic Project and Civic Fest.
Volunteer Orientation sessions will be held in the month of June to equip you to support the programme. You can attend either one of the sessions. The details are as follows:

Date:19th /26th June 2010.
Time:10:00am – 1:00pm.
Venue:Janaagraha Centre for Citizenship and Democracy.

We have reached out to over 20,000 children in the city over the last few years. This academic year we are targeting 100 schools, reaching out to 10,000 students! To realise this dream we look towards you to volunteer your time and energies in the programme and help our endeavour to hone the future citizens of this country

The list of participating schools is available here for your reference, do take a minute to peruse and respond to us (Click here for list of Schools).

We are still in the process of approaching new schools so we welcome any inputs from you regarding schools that may be brought on board the programme.
