KEYNOTE: Open Source 2.0: The Text Editor’s Last Laugh


Friday 10.Nov


In this conference talk, we explore the future of programming and open source in the age of Large Language Models (LLMs), where text editors may become as extinct as the dodo.

Imagine a world where software development is more like a casual chat with a clever AI assistant than a tedious typing marathon. New programming languages and frameworks will emerge, optimized for LLM generation and large-scale testing.

We will also cover the inevitable, revolutionary new path of open source in an AI world. With a sprinkle of humor and a dash of optimism, our talk will discuss how we can help the community transition towards a more efficient, streamlined, and dare we say, amusing future of software development.
