1. Victoria Livschitz, Qubell founder and CTO, will present "Autonomic application environments with Qubell and Docker for web and big data applications" and demonstrate the power of Docker+ Qubell.

Qubell is an autonomic application delivery and management platform for web, enterprise and big data applications. It delivers on a promise of self-service, push-button creation of complex applications environments that can scale on demand, upgrade continuously and self-heal themselves when their environment changes.

This talk will cover the following topics:

· Introduction to Qubell and autonomic application environment management

· Overview of key use cases:

o Self-service test sandboxes

o Automated CICD pipeline

o Continuous production upgrades

o Visibility of environment configurations and their changes

· Demonstrate how this works for big data environments using "Qubell for Hadoop Developers" accelerator

· Demonstrate the power of Qubell + Docker for test environments
