Title: Mercurial : The Faster & Easier Distributed Source Control Management
Presenters: Shahid M. Awan, KICS-UET, Lahore
Description:
The Mercurial is open source implementation for the Distributed Source Control Management Tool. It efficiently handles projects of any size and offers an easy and intuitive interface that assists in the ease of use in the overall development process. Mercurial is truly distributed, giving each developer a local copy of the entire development history. This way it works independent of network access or a central server. Developing smaller to enterprise grade applications is easy as committing, branching and merging are fast and economical.

Title: Linux & Memory Maps
Presenters: Abdul Qadeer, KICS-UET, Lahore
Description:
This workshop presents simple answers to complex questions like: (a) How the memory of the system is allocated? (b) How to communicate with I/O devices by reading / writing to 'memory'? (c) What is the difference between the virtual and physical address space? (d) How long is the physical and virtual address space on your Linux system? (e) Does & operator in C/C++ provides physical or virtual address? (f) How exactly 'null pointer exception' / segmentation fault is caught? (g) A 32 bit Intel processor starts executing instructions residing at the physical address 0xfffffff0 (i.e. 4GB – 16 B) on processor initialization. How is that possible when your system only has 1 GB of installed memory?
