Talk 1: Project Seven5: Opinionated web development for Go and Dart

Ian Smith will take us through Seven5, his  project that has Dart on the front end and Go on the back-end.

According to Ian, "Seven5 could be called many things, but we prefer to think of it as an encoding of a set of strategies and a code generator. Building a modern web application has a lot of parts that are stupid boilerplate, repetitive and niggling, already solved by others, or just boring. Seven5 generates Dart, SQL, and HTML that is linked together with your application to eliminate this type of work."

About the Speaker

Ian Smith currently hangs around the offices of Captricity and appears to do very little other than drink enormous volumes of very thin coffee, complain loudly, and bang on the home row keys (aoeu htns). He currently resides near an 880 freeway underpass in Oakland and his favorite football team is Paris Saint Germain.


Talk 2: Docker – Linux container runtime

Docker complements LXC with a high-level API that operates at the process level. It runs Unix processes with strong guarantees of isolation and repeatability across servers. It is a building block for automating distributed systems including large-scale web deployments, database clusters, continuous deployment systems, private PaaS, and service-oriented architectures. And of course, it's in Go.

About the Speaker

Solomon Hykes is a founder of dotCloud, a polyglot Platform-as-a-Service. He is well versed in the areas of infrastructure automation, software architecture and application development practices, and a champion of service-driven development, a game-changing trend that is transforming the way software is created and consumed.

    Thanks everyone for an awesome event and for the great feedback. I look forward to the next one.

    In case anybody's interested: we have fixed Ctrl-C and IDs now have a reasonable size. I call it shame-driven development :)

      Don't feel bad. I only brought it up because docker is exciting and its reasonably comical to call out such a minor detail.

      Keep up the incredible work!

    Started some prototype code at work. Love the language, but pull down by the lack of IDE or Debugger. Looking for answers...

      LiteIDE has debugging and onSave formatting. Have you tried it?

    2 very interesting projects, and the demo of Docker.io was impressive

    Hi everyone! I would like to volunteer a talk :)

    Would anyone be interested in a demo of Docker? (http://docker.io­). It's the linux container runtime which powers hundreds of thousands of apps at dotCloud - we are open-sourcing it, an it's all in Go!

      That would be awesome, I just heard about Docker today.

    +1 to Ashwin's query. We do this with the Silicon Valley Forth Interest Group's meetings; by streaming our meetings on Youtube, we get a wider audience (of course, we also expose our production mistakes to the world; it's a catch-22), and on the whole we've received very positive feedback for doing so.

    As I'll be missing this session this month, I'd appreciate a Youtube video that I could watch after-the-fact.

      We do have a lacsrg community on Google+ for this, but have not been consistent about broadcasting. If you join the community you will be notified of all broadcasts.

  • Ashwin P.

    Would it be possible to do a Google Hangout on air? http://www.google.com/+/learnmo...­. Hard for me to get up to SF on a weekday, but I really want to hear the Every Day Carry and Speakers.

  • Samuel A. Falvo I.

    I wish I could make this meeting; however, I'll be traveling during this session. Please come back to Rackspace in the future, as I'd love to attend a Go meetup!
