Talk 1: Project Seven5: Opinionated web development for Go and Dart
Ian Smith will take us through Seven5 (http://seven5.github.com/seven5/), his project that has Dart on the front end and Go on the back-end.
According to Ian, "Seven5 could be called many things, but we prefer to think of it as an encoding of a set of strategies and a code generator. Building a modern web application has a lot of parts that are stupid boilerplate, repetitive and niggling, already solved by others, or just boring. Seven5 generates Dart, SQL, and HTML that is linked together with your application to eliminate this type of work."

He currently resides near an 880 freeway underpass in Oakland and his favorite football team is Paris Saint Germain.
Talk 2: Docker – Linux container runtime
Docker complements LXC with a high-level API that operates at the process level. It runs Unix processes with strong guarantees of isolation and repeatability across servers. It is a building block for automating distributed systems including large-scale web deployments, database clusters, continuous deployment systems, private PaaS, and service-oriented architectures. And of course, it's in Go.
