DramaFever, the largest streaming video site for international content, uses AWS to power its streaming video platform, and has been running Docker in production since about October 2013 (well before it even went 1.0). This talk goes into detail about we use Docker to make development more consistent and deployment more repeatable.

Matthew Hodgson (Matrix.org)
An open, interoperable communication ecosystem for VoIP, IM, and IoT services currently feels farther away than ever. Users are forced into closed silos like WhatsApp and Facebook by their contacts, rather than choosing their preferred app/service. This talk discusses ways to fix the problem and introduces Matrix: an open standard for decentralised communication, which may provide a new hope.
