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

Location: Pacific DEKJ

Day of week: Tuesday

Containers! Behind the technology, there is a vast ecosystem of actors, some of them old, some of them new; and beyond the techniques, there are all the cultural changes and paradigm shifts that they enable and encourage. Let's explore the blooming tools of the trade, like the multiple orchestrators available out there, while keeping in mind the wise words of thought leader Bridget Kromhout: "Containers Will Not Fix Your Broken Culture," and discuss how to use them to the greater benefit of our organizations instead of caving in to the latest fickle fashion.

Track Host:
Jérôme Petazzoni
Hacker @Docker

Jerome is a senior engineer at Docker, where he helps others to containerize all the things. In another life he built and operated Xen clouds when EC2 was just the name of a plane, developed a GIS to deploy fiber interconnects through the French subway, managed commando deployments of large-scale video streaming systems in bandwidth-constrained environments such as conference centers, operated and scaled the dotCloud PAAS, and various other feats of technical wizardry. When annoyed, he threatens to replace things with a very small shell script.

Kubernetes Maintainer & Kubicorn Creator

Kubicorn is an open source Go project that is aimed an solving the Kubernetes infrastructure problem. The day after the project was open-sourced it had already climbed to the number 1 fastest growing Go project on GitHub. This talk will dicuss the reasoning behind the project and how the core of the tool is developed strictly for cloud native application. We will clearly identify the problem space with existing infrastructure tooling and discuss how Kubicorn...

The mainstreaming of containerization and microservices is raising a critical question by both developers and operators: how do we debug all this?

Debugging microservices applications is a difficult task. The state of the application is spread across multiple microservices, and it is hard to get a holistic view of the state of the application. Currently debugging of microservices is assisted by openTracing, which helps in...

The container ecosystem is now home to multiple architectures and operating systems. Working in the isolated environment of your project makes it easy to forget about those platforms you don't use. If we've learned anything from Open Source communities, it's that inclusiveness and cooperation lead to long-term success.

Come learn how multiple industry players are coming together to ensure that no matter what platform you use,...
