## Topic

"Microcontainers - tiny, portable Docker containers"

Docker images can be really big if you use a base image like Ubuntu because they include everything, but the kitchen sink. Your applications don’t need most of the stuff that’s inside those images. I’ll show you how to build really small images, Microcontainers, by starting with nothing and only adding what your application needs to run. Microcontainers contain only the OS libraries and language dependencies required to run an application and the application itself. Nothing more.

## Topic

"Logging in Docker"

There are many different and totally valid ways to get logs and statistics out of Docker. Options are great, but we have concluded that the ultimate goal should be a solution that doesn’t require users to have in-depth knowledge about all the things that are available for monitoring and the various methods to get to them. Instead, we’re looking for something that just pulls all the monitoring data out of the containers and Docker daemons with minimal user effort. We like to think of this as “a comprehensive solution”. In this presentation we will cover on what we think goes into this comprehensive solution and how you can use it.
