Learn, Collaborate & Dockerize! Meet other developers and ops engineers in your community that are using and learning about Docker. Docker is an open platform that helps you build, ship and run applications anytime and anywhere. Developers use Docker to modify code and to streamline application development, while operations gain support to quickly and flexibly respond to their changing needs. Docker ensures agility, portability and control for all your distributed apps.

Docker is also the main sponsor of the Moby Project, an open framework to assemble specialized container systems without reinventing the wheel. More information available at http://mobyproject.org/

Docker Birmingham March 2020

Black Cat Technology Solutions

Welcome to Docker Birmingham March 2020! Agenda ---------- 18:00 - Pizza and refreshments 18:30 - A Brief History of Containers - Richard Horridge 19:15 - Say Yes! to K8s and Docker - Matt Todd 20:00 - Pub - Head of Steam! --- A Brief History of Containers - Richard Horridge ------------------------------------------------------------------ A review of how the containerisation technology has progressed since its inception (while trying not to be too academic!) --- Richard Horridge is currently a research student in the Birmingham Centre for Railway Research and Education, specialising in digital systems, intelligent infrastructure, condition monitoring and sensor fusion. Say Yes! to K8s and Docker - Matt Todd ---------------------------------------------------------- Apparently the container orchestrator war has been won (cough, cough betamax, cough, cough VHS etc) with K8s's fist being held high in victory. So you want some of that action, but don't want to shell out for a Cloud managed KaaS (!) service such as EKS and need a local service for local people. This talk will provide an overview of solutions for running certified K8s distributions in Docker and evaluating the pros and cons of each. --- Matt Todd is BlackCat’s Chief Architect, helping their clients create and execute technology and data strategies that solve complex business problems. Matt has nearly 20 years experience as a consultant in the technology and data space, including 10 years as co-founder of an application development company. He has delivered many successful, high profile projects, including the development and implementation of a digital railway Traffic Management System, which was subsequently adopted across Network Rail's western route. Latterly, he has been at the forefront of thinking regarding data lakes and their role in helping businesses manage and realise the value of Big Data. Matt gained a BSc in Artificial Intelligence and Computer Science at the University of Birmingham and has remained an active member of the Birmingham technology scene. He set up the Birmingham Docker and Cloud Native MeetUps and is a regular speaker and host at their events. Hope to see you there!
