Session details
Hands-on workshop: Getting Started with Containers and Kubernetes

Date: February, 21st

Time: 3:00 – 4:30pm

In this hands-on workshop you’ll dive into containers, how they’re composed, and their uses. From there you’ll stand up a Kubernetes deployment either in the cloud or on your laptop and dive in to how containers can be managed on platforms like Kubernetes.

By the end of this workshop, you’ll be able to identify the differences in container types, how to setup a Kubernetes install, and the vocabulary and common workflows for running containers on Kubernetes.Attendees will need to bring a laptop.

For those of you interested in running Kubernetes, you’ll need Ubuntu running on your laptop or virtual machine with a minimum of 4GB RAM and SSD drive. Otherwise, temporary cloud credentials will be provided for deployment sections of the workshop.

Marco Ceppi, DevOps Engineering Manager, Canonical

Session: Use the Right Container Technology for the Job

Date: February, 22nd

Time: 1:30 – 2:10pm

Application containers, machine containers, process containers, system containers — what’s the difference? 12-factor apps, Microservices, cloud-native application design — are these real? Docker, Rocket, OCID, LXD — do I need all of them? Should I run PaaS on top of my IaaS, or my IaaS on top of my PaaS? Do containers fit into PaaS or IaaS? Or both? Neither? Where are the intersections of Kubernetes, Swarm, Mesos, and OpenStack? How do I ensure compatibility across my public and private clouds? And how does bare metal — from my commodity, scale-out x86 to my powerful, scale-up mainframes fit into all of this? Can any of this stuff actually be used in a highly secure environment?

In this session, Dustin will explain the container ecosystem in clear, concise terms, from real enterprise user experience — the successes and the failures.
