Preliminary program will be available soon.
- Werner Keil: UOMo - Typesafe Units of Measurements and its Usage for Open Data
Developers who work with physical quantities (such as developers in the scientific, engineering, medical, and manufacturing domains) need to be able to handle measurements of these quantities in their programs.
Inadequate models of physical measurements can lead to significant programmatic errors. In particular, the practice of modeling a measure as a simple number with no regard to the units it represents creates fragile code. Another developer or another part of the code may misinterpret the number as representing a different unit of measurement.For example, it may be unclear whether a person's weight is expressed in pounds, kilograms, or stones.
Registration will be available soon on Eventbrite.
