Deployment with containers

Theme : Containers, docker, lxc, smartos / joyent etc.

The usual 3 x 20 minute tech-talk format around the theme of containers, followed by free beer/pizza afterwards.

Microsoft have kindly offered to host us in their auditorium so we have a stage and lots of seating around it. Plus a break out area for networking.

We are currently lining up some amazing speakers to be announced shortly! If you'd like to talk on this theme let us know.

Speaker 1 : Simon Vans-Colina at Pearson

Topic : Removing environmental differences

Is Docker the answer to the Stack x Platform x Cloud explosion thats engulfed the Enterprise?

Is IaaS really the right model? or just the one that worked?

Has PaaS’s time finally arrived.

Can Docker make OS, library, stack choices irrelevant to hosting and Ops?

This talk looks at how Pearson is investigating and moving towards Docker, what we’ve learned so far, and what you can learn from our experiences.


Speaker 2: Alex Heneveld at Cloudsoft

Topic: Amplifying Docker

In this talk we look at the challenges of taking docker and using it as the basis for a cloud platform. We highlight the work done by one of our own Cloudsoft engineers Andrea Turli who has contributed an Apache jclouds provider for Docker and integrated this with the open source project Brooklyn.

Andrea has written about this in a recent blog post AMP for Docker and so using this as a starting point we show how we are building on this to create a lightweight dynamic Docker cloud and compare and contrast this with work we are doing with our latest partner Waratek to help them create a similar lightweight dynamic Java cloud using their Java application container technology.

Speaker 3: Ian Miell at OpenBet

Topic: Docker at OpenBet, ShutIt and 2048

OpenBet is a transactional gambling platform that's over 15 years old. Over the years we've accrued a lot of technical debt and have recently begun using docker to help tackle some of this.

To this end we've built and open-sourced a built tool: http://ianmiell.github.io/shutit/ and https://github.com/ianmiell/shutit/

As a demo, we've used it to win at 2048, blogged about here: http://zwischenzugs.wordpress.com/2014/05/09/docker-shutit-and-the-perfect-2048-game/

      May 28

  • James H.

    A few things to remember:
    Location - The venue is Central Working, 69-89 Mile End Road, London, E1 4TT.
    To reach the auditorium, enter F&G the black cafe to the right of Tesco Extra, walk right to the back and head up the set of stairs, you'll see us.
    Closest tube/train stations: Whitechapel (District line, Hammersmith and City line and Overground) and Stepney Green (District and Hammersmith and City line). One of the two will be quicker depending on which way you travel from.
    If traveling to Whitechapel turn left and head down the road, if traveling to Stepney Green turn right. Its a 5-10 minute walk from the stations, just keep an eye out for the Tesco extra.
    If you cannot make the event:
    Please change your RSVP! It will free up space for others who are on the waiting list.
    Remember to use the hashtag #DOXLON in all tweets regarding the event. There will be prizes for the best tweets, more info on that later!
    See you all tonight at 6:30!

      May 28

    May 27, 2014

  • Sean M.

    Freeing up my space as I'm not going to be able to make it :(

    May 27, 2014

    • Steven A.

      Sorry to hear that Sean. We're doing one a month for a while (until we get so big it turns into a festival). So hopefully we'll see you at the end of June.

      May 28

  • Tom A.

    Damn, unlikely to make it back from customer site in time now.

    Will it be videoed?

    May 26, 2014

    • Tom A.

      Cool, thanks. Have you got a theme for the next one yet?

      May 26, 2014

    • Steven A.

      Yeah, we want to do 'show and tell'. We're working with a bunch of platforms teams that are building their own open source tools and want to demo them. British Gas Hive Home is one example - they have been writing an internal platform as a service tool that lets you define infrastructure and a 'difference engine' keeps the cloud components up to date. If you know of anyone else who is making cool software point them my way please

      May 26, 2014

  • Julien

    It looks really interesting, a shame it's already full. Should we try to show up anyway if we are on the waiting list?

    • Stefano P.

      Sadly, I won't be able to attend this meeting. Freeing my spot. ;)

  • Richard D.

    Hi. We would also be keen to speak at this event. We just launched a unique container-based IaaS (unlike all existing IaaS which are VM based), and can talk about the difference between VMs and Containers for IaaS. See http://www.computerweekly.com/news/2240217768/UK-cloud-pioneer-scores-world-first-with-true-utility-pricing

    May 6, 2014

    • Steven A.

      Hi Richard, we're fully booked for this event but we'll reach out for future ones. Thanks!

  • Ian M.

    I'd also be interested in giving a talk on an in-house tool we've open sourced:

    https://github.com/ianmiell/shutit

    which is "complex docker deployments for programmers", essentially.

    May 6, 2014

    • Steven A.

      Hi Ian, as per below we locked in the talks within a week so we could promote. Limited to 3 x 20 minute presentations so people dont get fatiqued. We'll be running more in future so we'll be in touch.

      May 6, 2014

  • Duncan J.

    Hi. We are happy to contribute talk on this topic. Focusing on our work automating deployment of application on docker. See http://www.cloudsoftcorp.com/blog/2014/03/amp-for-docker/ for background

    April 30, 2014

    • Steven A.

      Thanks Duncan! We'll be in touch.
