Talk 1: Canonical on moving from Python to Go and architecting for reliability

Together with a few of his more senior colleagues from Canonical, David will talk about the rewrite of Juju from Python to Go, including details on the refactoring process plus the gains they've seen. They will also address how they've architected Juju to reliably deploy services in a distributed environment where they expect everything to fail.

Agenda

Talk 1: NSQ, bitly's Realtime Message Processing System

Matt Reiferson from bitly will give a presentation on NSQ, a realtime message processing system designed to operate at bitly’s scale, handling billions of messages per day. He will discuss the evolution of our message processing infrastructure, the reasons why they built NSQ, and details on its design, all with an emphasis on Go.

About the Speaker

Matt Reiferson is an American software engineer, lunch instructor, and fan of tv's Bob Ross. He is most known as the creator and host of The Joy of Coding in DOS, a television program that ran for twelve years on PBS stations in the United States.@imsnakes

Jehiah Czebotar is a co-author of NSQ. When not painstakingly shortening URLs by hand at bitly, Jehiah can be found riding trains, learning Amharic, or building iPhone apps to help others do both of those things more efficiently. He documents the details of his day to day life that most people take for granted.@jehiah 
 

Talk 2: Go Circuit project

Go Circuit is a recently open sourced project from Tumblr that provides a paradigm for developing and sustaining Big Data apps. Petar Maymounkov worked on the project and will be on Go on Air to tell us about it.

The Go Circuit project can be described as:

A cloud app development and management infrastructure
An "AppEngine" for distributed systems engineering
An extension of the Go language that supports spawning new goroutines on remote hardware.
The "Erlang of the imperative, systems programming world".
About the Speaker

Petar Maymounkov is a developer and research specializing in algorithm design and analysis. He developed Go Circuit while at Tumblr and has been full-time with the project since.
