Talk 1: Brad Fitzpatrick, Experiences Rewriting Code in Go
Brad Fitzpatrick will provide an intimate insider view of converting critical code components at Google into Go. In particular, he'll talk about his experiences rewriting dl.google.com to Go. The new dl.google.com software contains fewer lines of code, uses less memory and is more reliable.
He'll talk about the insights he gained using Go in real-world high-traffic situations, where the biggest gains are (tangible and intangible), and will even touch on discovering a few deficiencies in Go. You won't want to miss what it's like to be on a "gopher team" solving problems and working on high visibility projects.
About the Speaker
Brad Fitzpatrick is on the Go Team at Google. He's been at Google since 2007 working on Social Graph API, PubSubHubbub, WebFinger, Android, and more. Prior to that he founded Danga, created LiveJournal, authored memcached and did a load of stuff at SixApart (OpenID, djabberd, ....) Why Go: "It's refreshingly simple and productive. Makes me giddy about writing code again after years of hating the major trade-offs between different languages." (http://bradfitz.com/)
Talk 2: Rob Miller, Mozilla Heka Team
This is a survey level view of the design and implementation of Heka, a data collection and processing tool written in Go by members of Mozilla's Services team. It contains a brief description of what Heka is (and isn't), an overview of the architecture, and a discussion of the authors' experience with Go as the development platform.
About the Speaker
Rob Miller is the project lead for Heka at Mozilla. He's recently started writing data processing software in Go after many years of doing mostly web programming in Python. In previous lives, he's put his efforts towards such projects as bringing an open source ethos to civic infrastructure, performing radical social experiments in the Black Rock desert, and hosting Chinese language websites for the Dalai Lama.
