We will have talks by Adrian Cockroft from Battery Ventures and Mike Coleman from Docker!
6:30 - Welcome, networking, food and drinks
7:00 - Mike Coleman: DockerCon Recap
Mike’s going to take us through all the announcements from DockerCon (1.12, Docker for AWS/Azure/Mac/Windows, Docker Store, and more). He’ll also demo some of the killer things shown during the keynotes including Docker 1.12 and Swarm Mode as well as Docker for AWS (and maybe more, who knows).
Mike is responsible for creating technical content to help customers come up to speed on Docker and its related components. Prior to joining Docker this summer he spent about 15 months at Puppet Labs working in product management. And, before all that he spent time at VMware, Microsoft, Intel, and HP in both product management / marketing as well as IT engineering. Outside of work Mike enjoys riding his motorcycles around Oregon's backroads, spending time with his wife and kids, and supporting the Portland Timbers (that's a soccer team). You can find him on Twitter as @mikegcoleman (https://twitter.com/mikegcoleman).
7:45 - Adrian Cockroft: Microservices: What's Missing
Discussion of techniques to solve common problems that people run into when microservices are in production and being updated continuously in large organizations.
Adrian Cockcroft has had a long career working at the leading edge of technology. He’s always been fascinated by what comes next, and he writes and speaks extensively on a range of subjects. At Battery, he advises the firm and its portfolio companies about technology issues and also assists with deal sourcing and due diligence.
Before joining Battery, Adrian helped lead Netflix’s migration to a large scale, highly available public-cloud architecture and the open sourcing of the cloud-native NetflixOSS platform. Prior to that at Netflix he managed a team working on personalization algorithms and service-oriented refactoring.
Adrian was a founding member of eBay Research Labs, developing advanced mobile applications and even building his own homebrew phone, years before iPhone and Android launched. As a distinguished engineer at Sun Microsystems he wrote the best-selling “Sun Performance and Tuning” book and was chief architect for High Performance Technical Computing.
He graduated from The City University, London with a Bsc in Applied Physics and Electronics, and was named one of the top leaders in Cloud Computing in 2011 and 2012 by SearchCloudComputing magazine. He can usually be found on Twitter @adrianco (https://twitter.com/adrianco).
