Docker San Francisco Meetup #50: Swarm Mode

Last Wednesday was Docker’s 50th meetup in San Francisco! There was an awesome turnout from the local Docker community to see Docker’s own Nishant Totla and Dongluo Chen and their talk on Swarm Mode. Nishant and Dongluo gave a talk entitled ‘Using Docker Swarm Mode and healthchecks to Deploy Applications Without Loss’ where they demonstrated how to do service upgrades without impacting your application.   They explained that Docker swarm mode enables users to manage their applications with service primitives and the healthcheck feature provides health indications for a container. Coming up in the Docker 1.13 release, Docker Swarm can connect healthcheck results with load balancers to implement no-loss service upgrade. Check out the talk including Nishant’s demo in the video below.     Want to learn more about the Docker platform and Docker’s open source projects? Join us for the next Docker Online Meetup (Wed, Nov 9th Continue reading…

Docker Community Spotlight: Nimret Sandhu

Nimret Sandhu has shown himself to be a key player in the success of the Docker Seattle Meetup group; and now with almost 2000 eager members,  organizing engaging events has become quite the responsibility! On top of his busy work schedule at Dev9, his extracurricular activities and a family life, Nimret took the time to tell us his Docker story, his favorite thing about the Docker Community and also departed with some words of wisdom for anyone just starting a meetup group.   Tell us about your first experience with Docker. What drew you to joining as an organizer for the Docker Seattle Meetup group? My first experience with Docker was when our company, Dev9, looked into partnering with this up-and-coming startup named Docker a couple of years ago. Since I’m a long time *nix user who’s been exposed to solaris zones, bsd jails, etc. in Continue reading…

Docker Online Meetup # 41: Docker Captains Share their Tips and Tricks for Built In Docker Orchestration

It’s been nearly two weeks since Docker released Docker 1.12 as generally available for production environments, introducing a number of new features and concepts to the Docker project. Our #DockerCaptain team has already started to dig in and share their learnings with the community via blog posts, talks and peer-to-peer help. Docker Captains are technology experts who have been awarded the distinction of being a Docker Captain in part because of their passion for sharing their Docker knowledge with others. So, we’ve invited three of our Docker Captains to speak at the next Docker Online Meetup on August 31st and share their tips and tricks for using Docker 1.12.
