A Miracle Cure to Boost Self-Efficacy and Enhance Study Competence

This Lightning Talk took place at the KunterBuntesSeminar organized by computer science students at the University of Hamburg.

In five minutes I demonstrated a simple method for computer science (and related) students in Hamburg to improve their study situation for very little effort. I provided a link to the official collection of documents that govern the individual degree programmes and showed how one can find the documents that are relevant to oneself. I ended the talk with a plea to spend the short amount of time that it takes to read these documents once and for all.

HTTP status codes

HTTP status codes

This Lightning Talk took place in the KunterBuntesSeminar organized by computer science students at the University of Hamburg. It was about the status codes of the HTTP standard and how they are correctly used.

I started by explainig the general idea using a few well-known examples. Next, I examined the group of redirection codes in depth. I ended the talk with a couple of handy rules of thumb for practical usage.

OpenAccess and web publishing for students

OpenAccess and web publishing for students

This talk took place in the KunterBuntesSeminar organized by the Computer Science students.

It was about the general topic OpenAccess and the possibilities for students to participate by publishing their own work online. To encourage that, motivational impulses were provided, publishing platforms were described and Creative Commons was explained and discussed.

Badly Written Spambots – an Anecdote

Badly Written Spambots – an Anecdote

This Lightning Talk was held in the KunterBuntesSeminar organized by Computer Science students in Hamburg, it was the second one of the session and partly referenced the talk I held directly beforehand.

I explained how I managed to find out from my analytics data how to identify a spam bot that was badly implemented in such a way that it violated important web standards, thus triggering errors. By being stupid, the author of the spam bot relieved me of quite a bit of diagnosis-related work.

Piwik

This Lightning Talk was held in the KunterBuntesSeminar organized by Computer Science students in Hamburg, it was the first one of the session.

The subject was Piwik, a free and open source tool for website analytics. I explained the basic idea and showcased the possibilities for anonymization and data protection as well as other advantages of Piwik.

Thunderbird and Notify OSD

Thunderbird and Notify OSD

This lightning talk was held in the KunterBuntesSeminar. I introduced the topic with the first slide and then showed live how to transition from Thunderbrid's own notifications to using Notify OSD (and also the indicator applet, incidentally) on a typical Ubuntu Linux desktop.

For the downloadable slides here, a summary of what to do has been added.

A small C puzzler

A small C puzzler

This Lightning Talk was held at the KunterBuntesSeminar organized by computer science students at the University of Hamburg.

In these slightly more than five minutes I showed a small snippet of C code, explained referencing and dereferencing operators as well as macros, and posed a tricky question about a bit of C code that combines those concepts in a particular way. I then proceeded to explain the compiler behaviour that caught my fellow students by surprise by looking at the 99 ISO standard.

Tunneling with sshuttle

Tunneling with sshuttle

In this Lightning Talk, held at the KunterBuntesSeminar, I presented a small tool called sshuttle and compared it to other, more well-known software solutions.

The Department of Computer Science at the University of Hamburg uses, among other things, IP-based authentication for access control. This means that there are some resources, e.g. on the web, which can only be accessed from the Dept. of Computer Science IP subnet. To access these resources from home, it is necessary to create and use some sort of connection to the CS net. This can be accomplished by connecting to the VPN or by establishing an SSH connection. The tool I showcased, sshuttle, promises a new way to solve this problem by tunneling IP traffic through a simple SSH connection using iptables. This idea has several advantages over the alternatives.

What is LaTeX anyway?

What is LaTeX anyway?

This talk was held in the KunterBunteSeminar, a workshop conducted by the students of the Computer Science department, University of Hamburg.

It was conceived as a general introduction to working with LaTeX, primarily appropriate for absolute beginners. I gave an overview of how LaTeX documents are structured and how packages are included. Next, I spent a lot of time going over the most important and well-known packages (such as KOMA-Script and Beamer). Also included were some handy tips and tricks that hopefully help make LaTeX more fun and less daunting.

At the end, we had a look at the LaTeX code of some example documents I prepared: a simple official-looking letter, the current version of my bachelor thesis, and the very slides for this presentation.
