We're working on a GREAT lineup and we're always looking for more speakers. So if you have anything you want to present, please get in touch!

And now for the lineup:
Speaker: Kyle Evans

He think of myself as a sort of technical utility infielder, with the ability to run agile teams, write clean code, clearly communicate, and deliver results on-time. He’s worked in finance, technology startups, music, public radio, film, and advertising.

Title: (pending)

Title: Crato, an open source framework to easily deploy centralized logging

Speaker: Kurth O’Connor
Kurth is a Brooklyn-based developer and former college professor. He has worked in both Ruby and JavaScript ecosystems, SQL, NoSQL, data streaming and pipelines. He is also an accomplished researcher and educator.

Abstract: Applications and system services record their events to local log files, but by default these log messages remain on local systems and are eventually either archived away never to be seen or permanently deleted. Without intervening then, developers and administrators lose valuable insight into the history, performance, and security of their systems and applications.

Crato allows developers to quickly and easily deploy a centralized logging infrastructure to address this problem. Using Crato, each machine sends its logs to a central collection server, where developers can gain insight into their entire system by analyzing the consolidated logs across the entire deployed fleet of systems and applications. Besides log data consolidation and analysis (via InfluxDB), Crato also provides smart compression and archiving (via Amazon S3 and S3 Glacier). Crato makes configuring, deploying, and maintaining all these pieces easy and fast.
