# Container Meetup DD

Featured by: AWS User Group, Ansible Meetup and TU Dresden

Container technologies like Docker or Kubernetes are an integral part of every
IT department and developer pipeline. Ansible Meetup and the AWS User Group are
joining forces with the TU Dresden to present a joint meetup and show some cool
use cases with containers. You will also meet our special guests Thorsten Höger
and Carol Chen.

Join us, enjoy the talks and chat with us.

### Talk #1: Ansible + Kubernetes = Love

Ansible is "Automation made simple", Kubernetes is the de-facto standard of
container orchestration. During this talk you will learn why you should combine
them and which enhancements you will get by controlling your Kubernetes Cluster
with Ansible.

- Presenter: Daniel
- Length: 30 minutes

### Talk #2: Scientific Computing in Containers

The workflow of scientific computing requires flexibility in the software
environment, reproducibility of computation and thus of the software stack,
continuous development, testing, and deployment to various platforms and Linux
distributions, and the compatibility with various architectures, especially with
high-performance computers, scientific compute farms, as well as local desktop
machines. All this work can take advantage of recent container technologies,
like docker or singularity, and provides in combination with platforms like
GitLab a powerful toolset in scientific research and software development. This
presentations aims to introduce some aspects of the above that came into focus
in our research institute recently.

- Presenter: Simon
- Length: 12 minutes

### Talk #3: How Operators with Ansible make Kubernetes Sing

Kubernetes Operators help simplify the deployment, management, and operations of
complex and stateful applications on Kubernetes. Operators are usually written
in Go by software developers that are highly familiar with Kubernetes.
Ansible-based Operators provide a lower barrier to entry, faster iterations, and
the power of Ansible and its ecosystem. We will give an overview on how the
Operator Framework can ease Operator development workflow with Ansible.

- Presenter: Carol Chen
- Length: 12 minutes

### Talk #4: Docker on AWS using Fargate, CDK, and Github Actions

This talk will demonstrate how to build Docker images and deploy them to Fargate
using the AWS Cloud Development Kit (CDK) and Github Actions.

- Presenter: Thorsten
- Length: 30 minutes
