3 Customer Stories You Don’t Want to Miss at DockerCon Barcelona 2018

One of the great things about DockerCon is the opportunity to learn from your peers and find out what they’re doing. We’re pleased to announce several of the sessions in our Customer Stories track. In the track, you’ll hear from your peers who are using Docker Enterprise to modernize legacy applications, build new services and products, and transform the customer experience. These are just a few of the sessions in the catalog today. You can browse the full list of sessions here. We also have a few more we’ll announce over the coming weeks (some customers just like to keep things under wraps for a little longer). Desigual Transforms the In-Store Experience with Docker Enterprise Containers Across Hybrid Cloud Mathias Kriegel, IT Ops Lead and Cloud Architect Joan Anton Sances, Software Architect We’re particularly excited to have a local company share their story at DockerCon.

Now Open: DockerCon Europe Diversity Scholarship!

Over the last 3 years, Docker has provided over 75 financial scholarships to members of the Docker community, who are traditionally underrepresented, to attend DockerCon. By actively promoting diversity of all kinds, our goal is make DockerCon a safe place for all to learn, belong and collaborate. With the continued support of Docker and one of our DockerCon scholarship sponsors, the Open Container Initiative (OCI), we are excited to announce the launch of the DockerCon Europe Diversity Scholarship Program. This year, we are increasing the number of scholarships we are granting to ensure attending DockerCon is an option for all.   Apply Now! Deadline to Apply: Friday, 26 October, 2018 at 5:00PM PST Selection Process A committee of Docker community members will review and select the scholarship recipients. Recipients will be notified by the week of 7 November 2018. What’s Continue reading…

Hands-on Learning Opportunities at DockerCon EU

  The value of attending a conference is measured by how much you can learn and who you will meet. While DockerCon has you covered on both fronts. We know that everyone learns differently so the conference provides three options for you. Workshops: Starting this year at DockerCon San Francisco, we introduced a track dedicated to workshops where technical experts deliver 2-hour deep dive sessions with hands-on tutorials to deepen your understanding of Docker technology, Kubernetes, Isito and solutions from our ecosystem partners. Included as part of your conference pass, you must pre-register for workshops to save your seat.   Hands on Labs: I instructor-led isn’t your thing, check out the self-paced Hands-On Labs. Also included with our conference pass, Hands-On Labs are available at any time throughout the conference. Drop in between sessions or anytime – grab a seat and Continue reading…

Back By Popular Demand – Docker Pals Is Coming To Barcelona!

At DockerCon Copenhagen we launched the Docker Pals program in order to connect attendees and help them make the most out of their trip to DockerCon. Attending a conference by yourself can be intimidating and we don’t want anyone to feel that way at DockerCon! Pals get matched with a few others who are new (the “Pals”), and someone who knows their way around (the “Guide”) so that you will know someone before you arrive at the conference. So, DockerCon veterans, please consider signing up to be a Guide and help welcome those newer to DockerCon to the amazing Docker community. Participating gives you the opportunity to learn even more, grow an even bigger network, and have even more fun! Here’s what Pals had to say: “Docker Pals was an excellent opportunity to meet new Docker Captains and Community Leaders who Continue reading…

Proactive Ops for Container Orchestration Environments: Monitoring and Logging Strategies with Docker Enterprise

Over the last decade, the popularity of microservices and highly-scalable systems has increased, leading to an overall increase in the complexity of applications that are now distributed heavily across the network with many moving pieces and potential failure modes. This architectural evolution has changed the monitoring requirements and led to a need for scalable and insightful tooling and practices to enable us to better identify, debug and resolve issues in our systems before they impact the business and our end users (internal and/or external). I recently gave a talk at DockerCon SF 18 discussing functionality in Docker Enterprise that enables operators to more easily monitor their container platform environment, along with some key metrics and best practices to triage and remediate issues before they cause downtime. You can watch the full talk here:   Monitoring Methodologies One of the most Continue reading…

Docker SF Chapter Meetup: BuildKit and Container Orchestration

Last week, we had a great turnout for the Docker San Francisco chapter event at HQ! The meetup was focused on two of the most popular talks from DockerCon on BuildKit and container orchestration with Kubernetes and Docker Swarm. The purpose was to give people who couldn’t attend these talks a chance to hear to hear them live,  provide the opportunity to ask the speakers questions and network with other members of the container ecosystem. ‘Introduction to BuildKit: the Next Generation Builder Component’ Watch Tibor Vass’ Presentation First, we had Tibor Vass, a software engineer on the Engine Team at Docker and maintainer of the Docker project since 2014, take the podium with his talk ‘Introduction to BuildKit: the Next Generation Builder Component’. In this talk, Tibor went into detail about the latest developments around the builder component of the Docker Platform including Continue reading…

Cool Hacks Spotlight: DART

Docker container platforms  are being used to support mission-critical efforts all over the world. The Planetary Defense Coordination Office out of NASA is using Docker’s platform to support a critical mission that could potentially affect everyone on the planet! The office is responsible for tracking near-earth asteroids, characterizing them and determining how to deflect them if one were to find its way to earth.  DART, led by the Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory by way of NASA, is the Double Asteroid Redirection Test. The team has chosen a potentially hazardous asteroid to hit in order to measure the impact and determine how effective this type of mission would be. Developing the software for this mission is no easy feat, because space is hard! The team has one shot to make this mission work, there’s no rebooting in space. Space physics Continue reading…

Cool Hacks Spotlight: Gloo Function Gateway

To close DockerCon Cool Hacks keynote, Idit Levine from Solo.io presented Gloo, a high-performance, plugin-extendable, platform-agnostic function Gateway built on top of Envoy. Idit showed a demo that involved modernizing a traditional application; the classic Spring Pet Clinic sample app, by containerizing it and deploying it to Docker Enterprise Edition. She added functionality to the app by adding a microservice written in Go through a Gloo route. Then added more functionality by adding a Gloo route to an AWS Lambda function, creating a true hybrid cloud application combining legacy, microservices and serverless components. She then provided a demo of Squash, that works with Gloo to live debug two microservices forming an application running in Kubernetes on Docker Enterprise Edition, one in Java from IntelliJ, one in Go from Visual Studio Code. She finished her presentation by announcing and open sourcing Qloo, a Continue reading…
