Real world Ruby tricks - Robie Lutsey ( - No plan survives engagement with the enemy and no script survives engagement with the environment.

Lightning Talks Adaptive Fault Detection - Baron Schwartz ( (@xaprb ( Using Chef Environments - Seth Vargo ( (@sethvargo ( YOUR lightning talk here. Logstash - Zach Dunn ( - We all write logs, and presumably we are logging things that are important. But we almost never actually read them, or create anything from them. Why not?
