Are you excited for DockerCon EU 2015? We can’t contain our excitement!
If you are planning on joining us at DockerCon EU 2015, make sure you register now because DockerCon EU 2015 is on track to sell out early just like the previous editions! With only 35 days left till the conference, now is the time to claim your conference pass.
Last week, we announced the first set of speakers who submitted via the CFP process for DockerCon EU 2015 including:
• Docker Monitoring with Brian Christner, Cloud Designer at Swisscom
• DNS Service Discovery for Docker Swarm Clusters with Ahmet Alp Balkan, Open Source Engineer at Microsoft
• Cultural Revolution – Vision and Reality with Ian Miell, author of “Docker in Practice”
• The Glue is the Hard Part: Making a Production-Ready PaaS with Evan Krall, Site Reliability Engineer at Yelp
• Continuous Integration with Jenkins, Docker and Compose with Sandro Cirulli, Platform Tech Lead at Oxford University Press
Today, we are announcing the second set of speakers selected via the CFP process in the Wild Card and Use Case tracks. Read more about these four sessions below.
In the Use Case track:
Finding a Theory of the Universe with Docker and Volunteer Computers
with Marius Millea, Lagrange Fellow at Institut Lagrange de Paris
Cosmology@Home is a project which uses volunteer computing to analyze cosmological data and answer questions about our universe such as “how much dark matter is there?” and “under what conditions did the Big Bang occur?” We recently began using Docker by taking each job which we would normally send to our volunteer computers, and packaging it up inside a Docker container. The volunteer computers themselves come from interested users all over the world who download and run the software allowing them to become volunteers (called BOINC). The system is working exceedingly well and using Docker has made it massively easier for us to develop and run it. I will explain some of the technical details of the implementation, which involves a customized boot2docker ISO, as well give a brief summary of the scientific questions we are trying to answer and how these results made possible by Docker are helping analyze data from, e.g. the European Space Agency’s Planck satellite.
In the Wild Card track:
The missing piece : when Docker networking finally unleashes software architecture 2.0
with Adrien Blind, DevOps Coach at Société Générale, and Laurent Grangeau, Solution Architect and DevOps coach at Finaxys
Docker now provides several building blocks, combining engine, clustering, or componentisation, while the new networking service enable many new usecases such as multi-tenancy. In this session, you will first discover the new experimental networking features expected soon, and then drift rapidely to software architecture, explaining how a complete Docker stack unleashes microservices paradigms.
Shipping Manifests, Bill of Lading and Docker – Metadata for Containers
with Gareth Rushgrove, Engineer at Puppet Labs
The shipping container metaphor for Docker points to many of the advantages of building and running software using containers. But what about other essential parts of the shipping container ecosystem like the shipping manifest and bill of lading?
Many of the most powerful features of traditional package management tools like apt or yum are based on metadata associated with the packages. You can find out who created a package and when, check where a particular file came from, whether the package has a known vulnerability and more. What would this capability look like for Docker containers?
This talk will look at the power of metadata for containers, in particular:
• Docker provides labels for associating metadata with images and containers but how best to use them?
• What problems can be solved by agreeing on standards for container metadata?
• Exposing standard commands and endpoints to expose metadata about what is inside a container
• Demo some open source toolings and also look at the sort of tools we might build atop those standards and low-level tools
Persistent, “stateful”services with docker clusters, namespaces and docker volume magic
with Michael Neale, Co-founder, Head of Cloud and Architect at Cloudbees
In this presentation I will show how you can use and abuse namespaces to do things that you might not think were possible in docker. In doing this I will show how you can create a volume bind mount in a running container, and use “super privileged” containers to control other containers on the same machine. There are many uses for this, but at it also demystifies what some of the namespaces in linux are, and how they work (hint: everything is files, its unix!).
Official Docker Training at DockerCon EU 2015
Looking to learn even more about Docker? Join us for the official Docker training on Wednesday November 18th right after DockerCon EU 2015 for DockerCon attendees who want to become Docker experts. Through instructor-led discussion and interactive, hands-on exercises, participants will understand the more advanced topics required to deploy Docker in Production. Learn more about the training here and register soon before we sell out our spots!
