Abstracting Out Orchestration – Josh Kurz
Docker just rocked the world with their new orchestration technology. How many projects are tied to k8s, mesos, or whatever other orchestration technology exist? How many of those projects would like to move or experiment with raw Docker orchestration? I bet there are many out there, which would like to move, but have invested heavily into one orchestration technology and cannot pivot. There should be a layer of abstraction between the implementation of an application and the raw orchestration system that drives its running processes. This abstraction layer allows for flexibility and adds the ability to test and integrate difference solutions with ease.
This talk will incorporate details about what the differences are between k8s and docker 1.12, how those differences map to each other, and how to architect a system, which allows migration of these technologies easy. The point is not to successfully migrate a project off of k8s. The point is to show how a team can insulate themselves from changes to the underlying orchestration system and the benefits this brings.
Docker Containers and PaaS – Jorge Morales
In this talk I describe how I tried to run my application in Docker containers in production and how difficult and painful the process was, and why a PaaS platform helped me with many things I haven’t thought of before.
containerkiller2000 – Harm Weites
I’d like to show the HalfLife2-based container shooter that was featured on the wehkamplabs blog recently. Launch the game, connect to the wehkamp.com Mesos platform and just shoot the crap out of all microservices. Wathing them return from the dead before the platform goes south.
