KIND enables engineers to spin up local development cluster in under a minute, utilising Docker containers as "nodes". KIND was originally born as a method of running conformance tests for the Kubernetes project itself and has quickly gained in popularity within the community thanks to its fast start-up time, ease of use, and growing feature set. In this talk I will briefly look at how KIND differs from other local cluster tools, discuss a range of possible use-cases for KIND - both for local development and within CI/CD pipelines, and finally demonstrate how you can get starting using KIND. Ana-Maria Calin, Paybase - Demystifying Containerd and other container runtimes In 2016 Docker span out its core container runtime functionality into a standalone component, Containerd. Using Containerd developers can customize, extend and swap out functionality as needed, without unnecessary abstraction getting in their way This talk covers lessons learned by migrating a Kubernetes platform from a Docker Runtime based OS to a Containerd based OS. It includes observations around security, performance and usability, as well as the benefit of debugging using Crictl - Containerd’s cli, compared to the Docker cli. Find out if there’s a real benefit in swapping and the kind of effort required to achieve complete migration. Prasenjit Sarkar, Oracle - Multi-Stage Docker Build for effective Containers – Why & How Since the release of 17.05, Docker has introduced Multi-Stage Build for Docker Images for anyone who has struggled to optimize Dockerfiles while keeping them easy to read and maintain. This builder pattern will help anyone who would just like to have the runtime, configuration & application and doesn’t want to have compilers, debuggers, code, build, test logs etc. Sponsors: Tecknuovo - www.tecknuovo.com – Born out of the London tech scene, Tecknuovo bring together the brightest engineering minds, change agents and evangelists to challenge the traditional consultancy world.

  • Docker Birthday #6 - Docker London Meetup - March Edition

    RSVP on the Docker Event page using your Docker ID here --> http://docker.london/rsvp 6:00 – 6:45 Doors open 6:45 – 7:00 Introduction 7:00 – 7:30 Lewis Denham-Parry - State of the Union Address 7:30 – 8:00 Ivan Pedrazas - Using Kubernetes 8:00 – 8:15 Cake Break 8:15 – 8:45 Elton Stoneman - Just what is a Service Mesh, and if I get one will it make everything OK? 8:45 – 9:00 Wrap-up and Pub Lewis Denham-Parry (@denhamparry) > State of the Union Address Docker is now 6 years old, but what is there to celebrate? Should we be writing a card, queueing up for a slice of cake and get a party bag on the way out? Or should we be going to the other containerization party on the other side of town? This talk is looking back to see what Docker has done for us and to help see where it can help us in the future. Also, is there something else that we could be celebrating, rather than just Dockers milestone? Lewis is the co-founder of Cloud Native Wales as well as consultant, speaker, trainer for @learnk8s and kitchen fitter. He started off as a Windows developer in the financial sector but now focuses on containers and orchestration. Work has taken Lewis to beautiful cities such as Dublin, New York and Hollywood and left it all for Cardiff. When not throwing things around in his home office, he can be found walking his dog and playing lego with his family. Ivan Pedrazas (@ipedrazas) > Using Kubernetes Ivan has been running Kubernetes in production for the last 4 years for different companies. During this talk, he will cover what he thinks are the important aspects of running applications on top of Kubernetes. This talk is a mix of best practices, irony, architecture, sarcasm and application development. This talk will cover the basics of how to install (securely), how to deploy (securely) and how to run applications on Kubernetes. He may or may not wear a costume. Ivan has a background on development and architecture and works as a Solution Architect building distributed systems. He's not a dinosaur, even there are rumours that contradict this statement. Elton Stoneman - Docker (@eltonstoneman) > Just what is a service mesh, and if I get one will it make everything OK? Communication is the backbone of distributed applications. Imagine you could control that backbone independently of all the components, so your application code just makes simple calls to other services, and your communication backbone does all the complex non-functional work. Load balancing, traffic management, fault tolerance, end-to-end monitoring, dynamic routing and secure communication could all be applied and controlled centrally. That's a service mesh. Elton is a Pluralsight Author, Microsoft MVP and Developer Advocate at Docker. He’s been architecting and delivering successful solutions with Microsoft technologies since 2000, most recently Big Data and API implementations in Azure, and distributed applications with Docker. Our Sponsors for this event; Monzo Bank – www.monzo.com – At Monzo, we’re building a new kind of bank. One that lives on your smartphone and built for the way you live today.

It will also cover how we are using containers now, what we are doing well and what we should probably do differently. About Chris Denton; Back in the late 90s, Chris Denton fell into an IT career. He's worked as a Unix/Linux admin, Middleware engineer, Web Manager and now DevOps Manager at esure. >_Paul Jones // Chaos Engineering in Practice (Lighting talk) Chaos Engineering facilitates experimental fault injection into our systems and infrastructure to identify systemic weaknesses and ensure resilience and confidence in our systems. We will discuss the principles of Chaos Engineering, as well as practical examples of how open source tools can enable us to cause, learn and benefit from the ensuing chaos, and how we can use automation to continuously experiment, analyse and learn about the resiliency of our systems. We'll talk about how Istio provides failure injection capabilities and the Chaos Toolkit. Paul Jones is a Software Engineer specialising in cloud native application development, container orchestration, and infrastructure as code. He currently works at Dyson in Bristol. >_Ricardo Campos // Docker and CTM’s journey to a microservice architecture (Lightning talk) Ricardo Campos is a Solutions Architect and former Lead Platform Engineer at Compare the Market.

Docker Best Practices to get Zenko out in the open source world - When Scality decided to create Zenko, its free open source multi-cloud data controller, its Docker experience was close to nil. Now, 3 years and close to 2 million pulls on DockerHub later, Benjamin is happy to share Scality’s best practices to create a successful project. Benjamin will cover the following topics; Dockerfile best practices: limiting the number of layers, entrypoints and commands best practices, smart variabilization - Docker Swarm to Kubernetes: an open source and enterprise journey, with a live demo of their current stack using minikube. - Joost de Geus – Director of Solution Architecture at CloudHealth Technologies EMEA, Amsterdam – Joost has a background in Aviation Engineering, has been in Solutions Architecture for years and is an avid rower. Container Governance Services - Infrastructure cost allocation based on container resource utilization. Traditional Tag based show back and charge back in organisations don't work in the cloudbased container environment. As a result, the cloud providers only report on infrastructure cost and no individual container costs. The challenge is maintaining visibility and governance in this dynamic environment. This is critical for making informed strategic decisions, allocating costs, and driving accountability. Joost will explain how they’ve tackled this problem. CloudHealth gives you visibility in resource consumption by service, control and forecast spend and evaluate the mix of resources utilisation. - Stepan Stipl – Cloud Architect and Engineer - Stepan helps companies build and run scalable infrastructure platforms with focus on containers, Kubernetes and everything around. Malicious images in the Docker Hub - Presents you don’t want - What is Docker Hub not telling you? Docker recently pulled at least 17 malicious images out of Docker Hub repository. These images have been downloaded more than five million times and attackers were able to mine over $90,000 in crypto. In this talk Stepan will explain how this has been done, what are the dangers of using images from public repositories like Docker Hub and what should you be aware of. - Sponsors!
