21:00-21:30 I wrote 2 lines of Go and they broke things / Emanuele Rocca

This is the story of why and how the CDN serving Wikipedia uses a Go tool for log inspection and metrics gathering. We will see a silly bug that caused memory usage to constantly grow, the way the bug was tracked down with profiling (pprof) and dynamic instrumentation (SystemTap), as well as the fix.

21:00-end Networking
