Nov 11th: Docker Online Meetup #28: Production-Ready Docker Swarm
Swarm v1.0 is now ready for running your apps in production!

Swarm is the easiest way to run Docker applications at large scale on a cluster. It turns a pool of Docker Engines into a single, virtual Engine. You don’t have to worry about where to put containers, or how they’re going to talk to each other – it just handles all that for you.

We’ve spent the last few months tirelessly hardening and tuning it, and in combination with multi-host networking and the new volume system in Docker Engine 1.9, we can confidently say that it’s ready for running your apps in production. In our tests, we’ve been running Swarm on EC2 with 1,000 nodes and 30,000 containers and it keeps on scheduling containers in less than half a second. Not even breaking a sweat! Keep an eye for a blog post soon with the full details.

Join this online meetup with Alexandre Beslic to learn more about production-ready Swarm!

Nov 12th: Docker Online Meetup #29: Docker Networking is Now GA
At DockerCon in June, we first announced experimental support for Docker Networking. As of the 1.9 release of Docker, we are excited to announce that Docker Networking is generally available to define how your Dockerized apps connect together.

Docker Networking is a feature of Docker Engine that allows you to create virtual networks and attach containers to them so you can create the network topology that is right for your application. The networked containers can even span multiple hosts, so you don’t have to worry about what host your container lands on. They can seamlessly communicate with each other wherever they are – thus enabling true distributed applications.

And Networking is pluggable, so you can use any third-party networking driver to power your networks without having to make any changes to your application.

Join this online meetup to learn more about Docker Networking in Docker 1.9.



Nov 4th: Introduction to Apache Mesos with Docker – Stockholm, Sweden

Nov 11th: Docker Meetup at Hatch – Oxford, United Kingdom
Have you ever returned to an old project, only to find that you have to re-install older versions of software, before even starting any work? This is a common problem, compounded by developer environments across the team varying in hardware, OS versions, and development software.

Docker is a virtualisation-like technology which enables you to run software in a fixed environment, but without the speed problems normally associated with a virtual machine.

This enables us to specify versions of project dependencies, server software, tooling and operating systems, storing these alongside the project. Any developer can now run any project in the company very easily, reducing setup time, and freeing you up from troubleshooting system configurations.

This talk describes how we have introduced docker and docker-compose at Incuna to package python and front-end projects, saving hours of developer time and stress.
