Session Suggestions

What language, technology, or topic do you want to talk about / participate in?

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

    • Cloud Foundry and AppFog: How using a polyglot PaaS streamlines scaling and deploying of distributed systems

      Cloud Foundry is an open source framework for building a polyglot PaaS. http://www.cloudfoundry.org/

      AppFog is bleeding-edge polyglot PaaS service built on Cloud Foundry that you can use today. http://appfog.com/

      I'll discuss Cloud Foundry, how we use it to build AppFog, and show a demo of a simple application written as multiple micro-services written in different languages, running on AppFog, brought together client-side with Knockout.js.

      We'll accomplish this with only a little bit of code, and go from idea to completely deployed public application with push-button scaling in just a few minutes.

      AppFog and Cloud Foundry make building, deploying and scaling…

                      • Erlang

                        New is well forgotten old. You may have noticed that in these days of a higher demand for concurrent, fault-tolerant applications, people talk more and more about Erlang. Some try to copy its most prominent features to other languages. Erlang has been around for about 20 years now and is a solid piece of a battlefield-proven technology.

                                      I'm happy to talk about Emacs. How I set it up, why I like it, some of the neat things it can do. I also used vim for 5 years before making the switch.

                                      I previously gave a talk at PyCon 2ish years ago on the topic of the importance of loving your editor. In general, I'm pretty passionate about having good tools.

                                        How it'll completely alter your software deployment & development... I'll dive into it, if anyone wants to turn it into a hackathon and actually see demoes and do deployments we can do that too! :)

                                        • Discussion: Sexy and modern web design

                                          I'd like to get a discussion group, or perhaps a fishbowl (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fishbowl_(conversation)) going to discuss, learn and teach about the latest in web development and design techniques and technologies. A few ideas I have to help seed the discussion are below, but add more in the comments please.

                                          - PJAX for modern web navigation (see Github)
                                          - HTML5 tips and tricks
                                          - Responsive web design
                                          - Mobile first design strategies
