August 11th: Docker Talk at AWS San Francisco – San Francisco, CA

This talk gives an overview of the architecture built using Docker, Luigi, and Spot Instances, and the many lessons learned while implementing the system on AWS. The jobs are encapsulated as Docker containers which makes them language- and environment-agnostic. The graph is managed by Luigi, an open-source workflow management system. The jobs are executed on multiple Auto-Scaling Groups of Spot Instances, which scale dynamically based on the actual load and supply on the spot market.


August 11th: Docker Meetup at New Relic – San Francisco, CA

It was great to see so many of you for the first time since DockerCon! We already have another meetup in the works with three amazing speakers from Fluentd, Docker, and Datadog! New Relic has graciously offered to host again! See you there!


August 11th: Docker Talk at NYC.rb – New York, NY

Docker for Ruby Developers by Frank McCreery – By now, you’ve probably heard of Docker. In this talk, we’ll discuss how using Docker containers can simply both development and production deployments, for Ruby-based shops.


August 13th: Docker Meetup at Bronto Software Inc. – Raleigh, NC

It’s been awhile since this group has had traction, so with the help of Docker and the fine folks at Bronto Software who are graciously providing us the space, we are pleased to announce the relaunch of the local Docker Raleigh group!! We will be resuming the previous monthly meetup schedule during ramp up, but then I would like to plan on trying to transition into something a little more frequent !!


August 17th: Docker Talk at LinuxCon – Seattle, WA

Docker’s SVP of Engineering, Marianna Tessel, will be speaking in the keynote of LinuxCon 2015. In her keynote, she will be discussing what’s next for container technology. A short description of Marianna’s keynote: While virtualization technologies have been around for some time, it is only in the last two years that containers have taken the development world by storm. Ideal for application portability, containers became the tool of choice for organizations transitioning to next generation of distributed applications. This presentation takes a look at the evolution of containers and what’s next for this technology and the incredibly diverse Docker container ecosystem. Jérôme Petazzoni of Docker will also be giving multiple talks throughout the conference so please join to learn more about Docker.


August 17th: Docker Talk at the Transistor – Salt Lake City, UT

Intro to Docker Talk


August 19th: Docker Meetup at the Innevation Center – Las Vegas, NV

August 20th: Docker Talk at MesosCon – Seattle, WA

Victor Vieux, a software engineer at Docker, will be presenting alongside with Tim Chen about Docker Swarm on Mesos. Their talk will revolve around: Docker has become a popular way for developers to package their applications for deployment, but as applications get more complex there is a growing need to deploy them at scale, orchestrating them across dozens or thousands of machines. With Docker Swarm, you can talk to Mesos using the Docker command line client and start Docker containers on your Mesos cluster as easily as you would do it on your development laptop. In this presentation, Victor Vieux (Docker Engineer, Docker) and Timothy Chen (Mesosphere Engineer, Mesosphere) will explain why Mesos is the “gold standard” for running Docker containers at scale and will demo how to setup Docker Swarm on Mesos (using DCOS) and how to do a docker run against your Mesos cluster easily.


August 24th: Docker Meetup at Braintree – Chicago, IL

The first release of Docker only supported AUFS, and AUFS was available (out of the box) only on Debian and Ubuntu kernel. Then Red Hat wanted Docker to run on its distros, and contributed the Device Mapper driver, and later the BTRFS driver, and recently the overlayfs driver. Docker 1.7 will have (or has, depending on when you read those lines!) support for ZFS. We will present how those drivers compare from a high-level perspective, explaining their pros and cons. This will help the audience to make more informed decisions when picking the most appropriate driver for their workloads.Then we will see each driver in action, and look at low-level implementation details. We won’t dive into the golang implementation code itself, but we will explain the concepts of each driver. This will help to better understand how they work, and give some hints when it comes to troubleshoot their behavior.


August 27th: Docker Talk at Trek Winery – Novato, CA
