Talk 1: Canonical on moving from Python to Go and architecting for reliability

Together with a few of his more senior colleagues from Canonical, David will talk about the rewrite of Juju from Python to Go, including details on the refactoring process plus the gains they've seen. They will also address how they've architected Juju to reliably deploy services in a distributed environment where they expect everything to fail.

David Cheney is member of the Juju team atCanonical, a committer on the Go project, and a keen ARM enthusiast.

    Definitely going tonight. Sorry for the congestion I'll cause, but it's my first time my schedule and my gf's schedule align, plus first time attending a GoSF meeting. :)

    With permission from the speakers and organizer, I would be happy to use my laptop's webcam (MacBook Pro) and my G+ account to stream the event to Youtube. No promises on the audio quality though. I've done this before, and it can be pretty poor in the wrong circumstances.

    I would like to find out if, after the meeting, there is anyone I could buddy-walk to the BART station with. That part of town can get pretty intimidating for people like me as night falls. Thanks.

  • Samuel A. Falvo I.

    Definitely a MAYBE on my part.
