About the talk
What do you do when you need a lot of hardware for a short period, but you are unable to get it the normal way? Well, think out-of-the-box... During this presentation I will tell you about how we applied distributed processing in a very unconventional way: by making use of our colleagues laptops and a little bit of cross-platform compiling.
What will you know after the talk that you didn't know before?
Thinking out-of-the-box sometimes can be give very nice results.
