Running Capital One’s Flagship APIs on Docker and Amazon Container Service - Tim Marcinowski

Going beyond banking means trying new approaches to old problems. It has enabled us to demystify running Docker, Go web services and Amazon Container Service together. Between the business demanding faster time to market and the inability to increase SLAs with our affiliates, we had lowered confidence in existing tech. Capital One's new Credit Offers service used the new tech stack and reduced deployment time by 90% and recovery time by 50%. This provides us with increased flexibility to deploy additional new microservices. It is now clear that Docker and Amazon Container Service is the perfect solution to manage our APIs.

What’s new in Docker[masked] - Will Kinard

Docker 1.13 builds on and improves Docker swarm mode introduced in Docker 1.12 and has lots of other fixes. Our very own Will Kinard will walk us through those improvements and fixes. There's tons of them!
