DevOps Patterns for Cloud Native Application Development
We are excited to announce the July meetup scheduled for Thursday July 19th. Over the past several years DevOps practices have had a major impact on modern application architectures. Nowhere is this impact more apparent than in the ecosystem of Cloud Native architecture and technology. Cloud Native technologies use the efficiency of containers to make microservices architectures that are more useful and adaptive than their monolithic predecessors. In order to utilize this architectural flexibility, forward-thinking organizations have turned to well known DevOps principles as they build Cloud Native, microservices-based applications. The combination of DevOps and Cloud Native architectures is tilting the playing field by fostering a streamlined, lean product development process that can adapt quickly to market changes. In this session, we will discuss how DevOps best practices are changing as organizations move toward Cloud Native architectures and Kubernetes. We will explore the changing roles and responsibilities of application development and operations. We will demonstrate some open source, Cloud Native tools and technologies that can help application development teams, DevOps teams and Operations teams get started.

What we're about

Docker is the most popular implementation of Linux Containers, but there's competition in town. The goal of this group is to provide a forum where interested parties can learn about all implementations of App/OS Containers and virtualization technologies. We're predicting that 2015 will be the year of Linux Containers, and we plan to invite representatives from companies operating in that space to come and give hands-on-type presentations about their company's technologies. Expect presentations on Docker, App Container Spec, Rocket, Ubuntu Core, Atomic, Packer, CoreOS, Kubernetes, Terminal, ElasticBox, Novm and any other container implementations that are yet to be released. And expect those presentations to be geared towards developers, administrators and enthusiasts.
