Heya! This round we'll have a language (Julia) and a toolkit (Docker).
Harlan Harris - Julia
Julia is a high-level, high-performance dynamic programming language designed for technical and numerical computing that has learned the lessons from the successes and limitations of Matlab, C++, R, Python, and more. Features include a simple syntax, multiple dispatch as a fundamental design pattern, fast JIT compilation via LLVM, metaprogramming, easy access to C and Fortran libraries, a sophisticated standard library written mostly in Julia itself, and a rapidly growing package repository.
Eric Noriega - Docker
Docker is a toolset enabling containerization of applications on Linux. We’re going to do a quick review of the concepts, show some of the tooling and talk about why developers benefit from using containers, both for DevOps style deployment as well as in their own workflow.
We're just getting started so we're looking for people to speak. It's ok if you've never spoken before or if you've spoken hundreds of times, we want to hear from you!
We're looking for talks about anything interesting to programmers, come share about your favorite language or framework, or learn something new and talk about how it went! We're hoping for talks about anything but here are a few things members have mentioned wanting to learn about recently: Go, C, C++, Haskell, Erlang, and Elixir.
