If you want to run your own Internet node, it requires gluing together an awful lot of software, and maintaining it. We'll show you a fresh approach: use the Mirage operating system to easily compile the protocols you need (DNS, HTTP, XMPP and IMAP) for your Internet presence into a type-safe unikernel, and deploy the whole thing using just Travis CI and Git directly on the cloud or on ARM.

Taking a complex API and wrapping it to create a coherent SDK for a programming language is a huge undertaking, and even harder when it has to be done by a single developer. I created pyrax, the Python SDK for OpenStack, at the request of my company. It has been a success, but it didn't come easy. In this talk I'll share some of the many lessons learned, both technical and political. Read more.
