Building a Smarter Application Stack

Jul 3, 2014 · Dublin, Ireland

This month, we'll have Tomas Doran from Yelp talking about Docker, service discovery, and deployments. In his own words:

There are many advantages to a container based, microservices architecture - however, as always, there is no silver bullet. Any serious deployment will involve multiple host machines, and will have a pressing need to migrate containers between hosts at some point. In such a dynamic world hard coding IP addresses, or even host names is not a viable solution.

This talk will take a journey through how Yelp has solved the discovery problems using Airbnb’s SmartStack to dynamically discover service dependencies, and how this is helping unify our architecture, from traditional metal to EC2 ‘immutable’ SOA images, to Docker containers.


Tomas works in the operations team on infrastructure automation and monitoring at large scale for Yelp. He speaks regularly at technical conferences on a number of topics between testing, development, architecture, automation and systems administration. Tom came to the dark side of systems & devops after being a professional perl developer for many years. He’s an avid open source contributor and lives in London with his fiancé and far too many cats.

As always, meeting space, beers and pizza generously provided by Engine Yard. 

Please note - There is no access to Engine Yard before 7.15. Talks will start at 7.30
