In this meetup, we’ll discuss the benefits of service discovery within a clustered Docker environment. We will focus mainly on general concepts, but provide more specific examples where appropriate. Containers provide an elegant solution for those looking to design and deploy applications at scale. While Docker provides the actual containerizing technology, many other projects assist in developing the tools needed for appropriate bootstrapping and communication in the deployment environment.


Feb 9th: DevOps JHB February: Containerized builds with Docker – Johannesburg, South Africa
DevOps JHB’s first event for 2016 kicks off with a talk from your host, Dewald Viljoen. Containerized builds with Docker (30 minutes) I’d like to talk to everyone about someone we often neglect. That someone keeps our code flowing into production, runs all those automated tests, does things that we might not even remember to deploy to all our environments.

Feb 19th: Docker Meetup at LakeHub – Kisumu, Kenya
In this meetup, we will discuss the various networking strategies and tools used to mold the networks used by containers into their desired state. Some situations can take advantage of Docker-native solutions, while others must utilize alternative projects. When constructing distributed systems to serve Docker containers, communication and networking become extremely important. Service-oriented architecture, undeniably, relies heavily upon communication between components in order to function correctly.
