Talk 1: ElasticSearch and Large-Scale Custom Logging

ElasticSearch is awesome and we use it to manage the logs for all of our customers' deployed applications on Ninefold. I'll be talking about how we use tools like Chef, Logstash, Thor, and beaver to bring it all together.

About the Speaker:

Ryan Clark is a full-stack developer for Ninefold. He has been working with rails since 2.0.2 and Ruby version 1.8. Now he focuses his time on large scale deployment problems and more infrastructure than he knows what to do with.

Lightning Talk: Xiki and Ruby

It's time for the command revolution! A demo of the new Xiki features, and how to create the simplest possible interface on top of ruby code. We all have a list of things we do over and over - running unit tests, starting the server, deploying. Xiki lets you create notes and run commands directly from them.

About the Speaker:

Craig Muth has been evolving Xiki for over 10 years. He is the founderof Memorize.com, and the founder/organizer of the ProtoNight.com pairprogramming hack events in San Francisco.

Talk 2: Design for Technology Companies:Why you should never use Photoshop again.
