Container Orchestration & Migrating to the "Cloud" using Docker and Traefik
THIS IS A FREE EVENT - PLEASE RSVP USING THIS LINK Docker 101 Series In our final session of Docker 101, we will learn how container orchestrations enables our applications to scale up or down, react to failures, update without downtime, and live in harmony with many other applications. Docker 101 is a four-part series introducing developers to the world of containers and Docker. Each session builds on the concepts from the prior one, but we encourage new people to join us at any time in the series. The series topics are: 1 - Why Containers? [What problems do containers solve? Building and sharing containers.] 2 - Docker Compose. [More complex applications that network multiple containers.] 3 - Building Effective Images. [Deep dive into image layers. Efficient workflow and efficient images.] 4 - Container Orchestration. [Managing many containers in a cluster.] Migrating the traditional LAMP stack to the "Cloud" using Docker and Traefik Branden McKagen, Senior Sysadmin at Virginia Tech, will explore his journey of migrating a server full of webapps to containers using Docker and Traefik to try and avoid the dreaded D-word: Downtime.

What we're about

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
