Containers and OpenStack


Docker and OpenStack are two of the most popular open source cloud projects, both conceived to make IT more agile. Offering flexibility and other benefits, open source cloud infrastructure is a great fit for many organizations. While open source software itself is mostly free and provides many advantages, there are still costs to consider with this option. As developers, we are becoming more and more critical in choosing the tools used in projects and it's important for us to understand how to choose the right cloud platform. In this Containers #101 meetup we will provide an overview of container technology and how it relates to OpenStack. We will also discuss the cost of "free" or what's wrong with open source today. Join us for an evening of free food, drinks, and great conversation!
