This month we have two great talks by Carl Caum from Puppet Labs and Mike Coleman from Docker!

6:30 - Welcome, networking, food and drinks thanks to Intel and Sumo Logic
7:00 - Carl Caum: Adopting Docker in today's IT
As IT teams plan to deploy Docker, they are often looking for the shortest path to get from where they are today to where they want to be with Docker. One challenge is getting the Docker runtime deployed on operating systems already approved by IT and part of existing deployment processes. Once the runtime is deployed, teams need to quickly start managing their container apps across the available cluster nodes. Finally, teams need a clear path to integrate Docker management technologies like Docker Universal Control Plane into existing change management and delivery processes.

This talk will cover:

Using configuration management tools to deploy the docker runtime, sync Docker images, and ensure containers are running where desired with the desired runtime configuration.

Using configuration management practices of identification, control, status accounting, and verification/audit to manage Docker infrastructure over time

Build Docker infrastructure change management processes leveraging infrastructure as code to enable continuous peer review, audit, and replication.
