Please join us for our next meetup.
Currently we have the following talks lined up:
1) Speed up your shipments of Docker Containers with GitLab/CI (Niclas Mietz)
Build, Ship and Run your Docker container from source to production with your own build pipelines. In the era of clouds and dynamic infrastructures our integration and deployment pipelines for containers needs to be build-up fast and easy as well at your on premise setup.
This talk will present you concepts for integration and deployment of containers with the GitLab/CI tool. Create your own GitLab runners for the different uses cases to create software and learn some best practices to build good Docker images. Discuss a simple setup of your own CI/CD infrastructure in less than 10 minutes and getting started with your container pipelines.
Niclas is DevOps Engineer at the bee42 solutions and studies computer science at FH Dortmund. Next to his job he likes to work with Open-Source projects with container touch and new technologies in the container ecosystem. Besides supporting and visiting local meetups he is organizing the Docker Bochum MeetUp.
2) Package & Configuration Management have failed (Franz Pletz)
The reason why Docker exists and gained tremendous popularity in the last few years is due to the fact that both configuration and package management have failed. The common techniques to deploy software are overly complex and not interoperable even between derived distributions. Docker is just one solution but there are other innovative ideas that are slowly gaining traction and deserve to be mentioned.
In his opinionated talk Franz outlines what went wrong in the last 10 years in the world of configuration and package management, why Docker can be awesome, how most people are failing to use Docker correctly and his view on the next few years of software deployment automation. Discussion is not only welcome but necessary!
3) Borg Backup (Christian Neukirchen / Tristan Helmich)
