OpenChaos, September 25th: Unicode

To many, Unicode is best known as a huge repository of characters. This talk mostly deals with everything else. Encoding them, comparing them, and telling them apart.

After presenting a short history of Unicode, the talk presents different ways to encode Unicode characters and discusses their benefits and drawbacks.

It goes on to discuss Unicode Normalization Forms, which are used to compare strings containing separate codepoints that are logically equivalent.

Lastly there is some discussion on dealing with visually confuseable strings, in terms of both the Unicode Confusable Mappings and certain special characters.

This OpenChaos will be on September, 25th 2014 at the Chaos Computer Club Cologne. Start is at 8pm (20:00) CEST.

[...] even the word "hopeless" has "hope" in it. Plus, if you rearrange the letters it spells "peeslosh".
