"Fault-tolerance at scale made easy with Mesosphere and Google Cloud Platform"

Bio: Sunil studied Computer Science at the University of Cambridge, where he wrote his dissertation on delay-tolerant networking systems. After four months spent cycling across Africa he returned to London to join a major investment bank and then as a Data Engineer. Last year his interest in robotics brought him to UC Berkeley, where he completed a Master of Engineering degree with a focus on distributed computing and unmanned aerial vehicles, working in his spare time on an UAV startup. After leaving Cal, he joined Mesosphere as a Distributed Applications Engineer and is currently working on easy deployment of Mesosphere clusters on Google Cloud Platform.

Abstract: Gone are the days where you could build an app that only needs to run on a few servers. Now every app needs to be like Google: highly-distributed, fast, scalable and fault-tolerant. Devops everywhere spend a lot of time building their own custom scale-out architectures for web apps, but this is no longer necessary thanks to Mesosphere. Mesosphere's Marathon is an open source framework built on Apache Mesos that automates operations and provides a simple self-serve interface for developers to launch their apps on a shared cluster in a scalable and fault-tolerant way. We will demonstrate how easy it is to launch a Mesosphere cluster and run your existing applications in the cloud using using Mesosphere for Google Compute Platform.

"A Developers Guide to Containers and Google Cloud Platform"

Bio: Mandy works at Google as a Developer Advocate for Google Cloud Platform and is working to make the world a better place for developers building applications for the Cloud. She came to Google from Sun Microsystems where she worked with partners on performance and optimisation of large scale applications and services before moving on to building an ecosystem of Open Source applications for OpenSolaris. In her spare time she is learning Japanese and plays the guitar.

Abstract: Everyone is talking about Containers, but mostly in the context of how they work and not why and when they are useful or how to apply them to your own often complex and unique Use Cases. We'll look at how Google Cloud Platform enables developers when it comes to building Cloud Native applications and we'll show how support for containers fits into the big picture and provide insight into the when, why and how of using them. We'll wrap up with a cool demo of the Kubernetes Container Scheduler.

See you there!!
