Docker meet-up (Nov)

Hosted the Docker meet-up at Nordstrom's offices in downtown Seattle. Amazing hosts - drinks and tons of pagliacci pizza. A really cool meeting space too. Ran into some issues with trying to hook-up the computers of the presenters to the A/V equipment which was at the back of the room. There were no inputs near the presenter.

Played around with a Chromecast I carry around with me a bit but in the end just ended up using UberConference to send the slides to another computer near the A/V equipment at the end of the room which projected to the monitors. The lag was barely noticeable.

It was a rather long night with 3 excellent talks on Docker related topics:

  1. Docker orchestration using swarm: https://vimeo.com/191607400
  2. Running Windows applications with Docker: https://vimeo.com/191607382
  3. Ultimate traffic control = f(Docker, Consul, Nginx): https://vimeo.com/191607384

 

Events in November

Man oh man, where did the year go?! I like to joke that now with a couple of kids my wife and I have learned the fine art of manufacturing time :)

Anyways, hosting a couple of events this month in case anyone's interested:

11/9 Docker meet-up: http://www.meetup.com/Docker-Seattle/events/235287129/

11/15 SeaJUG: http://www.meetup.com/seajug/events/235099219/

It should be interesting to catch up on the details for the new containerization features released in Windows Server 2016 (https://goo.gl/Ld5a6G). I am seeing some folks reach out to us from the windows side about the brave new world of microservices (https://goo.gl/6Ca5Hn) and dynamic infrastructure (https://goo.gl/BFq6wL)

Fun times :)
