The theme for this months talks will be DevOps show and tell, a chance for speakers to show the DevOps community what big projects they are working on. We have several speakers lined up to talk, but if you're really interested in involving your projects in these talks get in touch. Stay tuned for more!
Speaker 1 - Milos Gajdos : Fixing Docker networking!
Milos has been working on fixing networking in Docker. Yes, fixing networking :-) At the moment it massively sucks. You can't do vlans, macvlans etc.. you can't even have more than 1 interface inside the docker!
After a week of after-work hacking on this (whilst watching world cup) Milos has found the cause of why this is not in Docker - it's the netlink package in docker - because no one has fixed netlink! This should be an entertaining talk for anyone who likes Docker, Golang and geeky container networking stuff.
Speaker 2 - Bryan Hunt from Basho : Ansible, Vagrant and Riak
Bryan talks about how to use Ansible and Vagrant to test and provision a Riak cluster. In case you didn't know Riak is a database based on the Dynamo paper written by Google. It aims to scale linearly in terms of size and performance. The ideal initial setup is a 5 node cluster. Bryan will show how easy it is to roll those 5 nodes out along with some tips and tricks for performance tuning.
Speaker 3 - Colin Hemmings from Dataloop : Building a custom time series db
Colin talks about how he architected and built a high performance time series database from the ground up at Dataloop.io. Handling hundreds of thousands of metrics per second. One of the objectives was to provide real time graphing and alerting. If you're 'rolling your own' metrics, are interested in Node.JS, highly scalable architectures and like listening to plenty of war stories you should enjoy this talk.
Thank you to all the speakers confirming. We hope to see you all there!
