Let’s Encrypt has challenged the status quo of Certification Authorities by providing free trusted certificates for everyone. Platforms like Netlify are leveraging Let’s Encrypt to make their customer web projects secure by default. This talk is about how we designed and evolved Netlify’s certificate architecture to integrate with Let’s Encrypt and issue hundreds of certificates every day.

Topic: PostgreSQL

Compiling PostgreSQL from source is a relatively easy thing to do compared to most open source projects. But for production systems, using the packages the operating systems provide is generally the recommended way to go. The problem is none of them end up managing PostgreSQL quite the same, let alone anything like the original source compile.

This talk will cover how some of the major Unix-based operating systems manage their provided PostgreSQL packages

Topic: Open Data

Open data is moving beyond activism and into implementation. Accordingly, we need an overarching data strategy that addresses the needs of a diverse ecosystem of local governments, and is co-created with those users who interact with local data, from city residents to agency employees to non-profits. We'll define users, explore data quality measures, and examine some strategies already in practice from the White House to the City of Santa Monica.

With over 19 million PC downloads, maybe you've heard of Minecraft before. Although the single player is addictive- the game's multiplayer experience is where it shines- allowing players collaborate to build and explore massive worlds. However despite the game's rich multiplayer aspect it is difficult to configure and deploy a server. Enter Docker. The latest in configuration management technology. By leveraging the strengths of Docker- automatic deployment and scalability we will create persistent Minecraft Server containers with ease using Docker, AWS's EC2 Cloud and {code}'s REX-Ray.
