Alberto is a long time SilconValley entrepreneur and has been working on thenew concept of Pretotyping.Pretotyping: Make Sure you are building theright 'it' before you build it rightPrototypes can help you fail faster, but often notfast enough or cheaply enough. The more youinvest in something the harder it is to let it goand admit it was the wrong thing. Once you havea “proper prototype” working, it’s tempting towork on it a little longer and invest in it a littlemore: “If we add this one feature I am sure thatpeople will finally use it.” Prototypes often turninto productypes – a prototype gone too far – andyou can kiss fail-fast goodbye.Between abstract ideas and “proper prototypes”there are pretotypes. Pretotypes make it possibleto collect valuable usage and market data tomake a go/no-go decision on a new idea at afraction of the cost of pro- totypes: hours or daysinstead of weeks or months, and pennies insteadof dollars. Pretotyping helps you fail fast,recover fast and leaves you plenty of time,money, energy and enthusiasm to explore newtweaks or ideas until you hit on something thatpeople seem to want – the rare and wonderfulright it!Brown Bag Presentations - MFIntranet of 3012/12/11 1:03 PM

Modernapplication platforms (like Android andHTML5) use a per-application permissionmodel, in which each application has adifferent set of privileges based on itsrequirements. In theory, the per-applicationpermission model limits the impact ofvulnerabilities to applications' declaredpermissions, informs users of the risks ofapplications, and facilitates a centralizedreview process. We explore whether thesebenefits are being realized in practice byperforming case studies on Android and theGoogle Chrome extension system. This talkwill cover a set studies on Androidapplications and Chrome extensions thatevaluate application permissionBrown Bag Presentations - MFIntranet of 3012/12/11 1:03 PM

Besides, becauseHTML is a cousin of XML, XMLtechnologies can be almost readily adaptedfor client-side programming. This hasalready been done in many browsers forXSLT. We suggest to also bring XQuery tothe browser. XQuery is a family of W3Cstandards tailored for processing andupdating XML content. Since XQuery isalready used for writing server-side Webapplications (business logic and databasequerying), using it as a client-sideprogramming language considerablysimplifies the technology stack, with a singlelanguage for all layers, and XML as a dataexchange format between them.Today, the most widespread language forprogramming the browser is JavaScript.Browser vendors have made tremendousprogress on its execution speed, and this willprobably continue in the next years. Takingadvantage of this situation, using GWT, wecross-compiled an XQuery engine toJavaScript, making XQuery code insidescript tags executable in modern browserswithout any installation. During this talk, wewill introduce an API for programming thebrowser in XQuery and demo the latestversion of our prototype. Matthias BrantnerBrown Bag Presentations - MFIntranet of 3012/12/11 1:03 PM
