Computer Science: unicorns, dragons and heroes

Computer Science: is it the good witch or the bad wolf of the fairy tale? Is it the mythical Prometheus stealing the fire (knowledge) from gods to give it to people, or is it Pandora, hiding in her box unexpected troubles? And where is Hogwarts, the wizarding school, that will teach modern wizards the magic of Computer Science? In this magical world, where does modern Hermione stand next to Harry Potter? This panel aims at shedding light to myths and truths about Computer Science with the help of modern heroes and heroines of the field.
