Intro to CoreOS

Dedicated VMs and configuration management tools are being replaced by containerization and new service management technologies like systemd. This presentation will give an overview of their key technologies, including etcd, fleet, and docker. Come and learn how to use these new technologies to build performant, reliable, large distributed systems.
