Presentation: Going Production with Docker and Swarm

Track: Tools and Culture: What's Beyond a Stack of Containers?

Location: Pacific DEKJ

Duration: 4:10pm - 5:00pm

Day of week: Tuesday

Level: Beginner

Persona: Backend Developer, DevOps Engineer

Abstract

Come learn the major decisions you need to make and some big lessons learned on the way to using Docker Swarm in production. This is an updated top-10 talk from DockerCon on the details of infrastructure and project planning for jumping from Docker for dev/test to a production cluster in the datacenter or the cloud.
DevOps in the Real World is far from perfect, yet we all dream of that amazing auto-healing fully-automated CI/CD micro-service infrastructure that we'll have "someday." But until then, how can you really start using containers today, and what decisions do you need to make to get there? This session is designed for practitioners who are looking for ways to get started now with Docker and Swarm in production, using the latest versions. This is not a Docker 101, but rather it's to help you be successful on your way to Dockerizing your production systems. Attendees will get tactics, example configs, real working infrastructure designs, and see the (sometimes messy) internals of Docker in production today. Based on consulting project lessons-learned and Docker team best practices, given by a Docker Captain and DevOps consultant.

Speaker: Bret Fisher

DevOps / Cloud Engineer

I'm a freelance DevOps and Docker consultant, trainer, speaker, and Open Source volunteer working from Virginia Beach, Virginia. I'm the author of the popular Docker Mastery series on Udemy with over 20,000 students, and I teach Docker Orchestration Workshops all over. I've been a sysadmin and developer for 20+ years, and lately, I help teams Dockerize their apps and orchestrate and automate their infrastructure. I'm also a Docker Captain and Code for America Brigade Captain. I help run several meetups and love helping others. I sometimes develop in Node, shell, and web, usually for open source. When not doing tech, I CrossFit, party too much at the beach, and travel with my Wife.
