## Program

### 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.

- 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: tbd


- Presenter: tbd
- Length: 12 minutes
