React on Rails
by Conner Wingard
React is a powerful JS (I know!) library for building user interfaces. Our goal is to build a blogging app with markdown editor and live HTML preview powered by Ruby on Rails and React. In doing so we will learn what makes React more than yet another JS library blowing up Hacker News.
Container-based Development with Docker
by Brian Kaney
This is a different kind of Docker talk. We will side-step deployment orchestration. We won't mention scheduling and service discovery. And we won't even talk (much) about docker repositories. Instead, it's all about developers! Building applications today using Docker has never been easier. We will look at why using Docker now in development makes sense. Then dive into using new tools, techniques, and workflow practices. We will also cover emerging community "container trends". Folks should leave this talk feeling ready to try container-based development.
