A Linux machine is a powerful computing platform. While many of us are adept users, there are hundreds of tricks that can speed up repetitive tasks; I'll cover 42 of them. With a little knowledge, you can copy large files quickly with nothing more than tar and netcat, use git (and github or bitbucket) to synchronize your dotfiles across many machines, or spin up a temporary webserver to share a file with a new friend in South Africa.
MongoDB and Amazon Web Services are a great match. Learn how MongoDB's components map to AWS compute and storage instances. In addition, we'll also cover the various deployment scenarios when it comes time to set up MongoDB in production. Throughout the presentation, we'll go in-depth and review the specific steps necessary to set up MongoDB in a production deployment and discuss how to backup/restore your data as well.

A lean startup is all about moving fast and trying new things. In this session, we'll learn and discuss some methods and tools to develop the technology behind your idea in less time - and with higher quality.

We'll even go over setting up and managing continuous deployment, and how to learn the most from a project review.
You have a great idea to change the world. You’ve mastered the latest and greatest open source development stack. Now what? Over seventy percent of all startups fail. And the majority of those do so for one simple reason: they don’t deliver products customers really want. Even successful companies often limit their upside by wasting resources on things that do not further their end goals. Lean Startup is a whole new way to run startups that radically reduces this wasted effort, and therefore significantly improves the probability and magnitude of success.
