Hacker Forum: Provisioning & Continuous Delivery


Join us for our third Hacker Forum, an evening of conversations and presentations on a particular topic.
This month we're featuring lightening talks by two distinguished engineers.


Jonathan Leibiusky:
"Exploring Docker at Gilt"

Over the past few months, a team of engineers at Gilt has been experimenting with Docker: an exciting new open source engine that makes it possible to create and run applications in their own lightweight containers. (You might call it "worry-free continuous deployment.") In this short talk, Gilt engineer Jon Leibiusky will describe what Docker is, what it does, and why Gilt has joined other companies in exploring this promising new technology despite its not-quite-finished state. He'll also briefly discuss some of the ways that Docker stands to compliment Gilt's distinctive micro-services architecture (450 applications and counting), and some of the discoveries he and his colleagues have made during their work.


Mike Adler:
"The Perfect Provisioning Tool"
Mike Adler will facetiously define the criteria for the perfect provisioning tool. The talk is oriented towards service-oriented architecture on IaaS vendors like Amazon. Mike will discuss the merits of a few available tools and introduce AWSHeet, which is a handy, if imperfect, way to provision resources.



Join fellow hackers for an evening of tech talks, presentations, and conversations -- as well as dinner and drinks, generously contributed by Gilt.

Gilt's security desk requires a first and last name for entry to the building, so please add your last name in the appropriate field when you RSVP, and bring your govt-issued ID.

    Python seems like it's getting more Devops mind share? I look forward to hearing about Mr. Adler's tool, https://github.com/adler/awsheet­ . I have heard of Docker and look forward to that as well. https://www.docker.io/­

    Interesting topics. Unfortunately, the first Wednesday of the month doesn't usually work for me.
