More Than Applications: (Ab)using Docker To Improve Portability Of Everything

Apr 18, 2018 · Culver City, United States of America

Most of us have used Docker to ship application code from a laptop or a continuous integration system to a production server. But why stop there? In this talk, we will discuss some little known and less commonly understood ways to use Docker to increase portability of everything else. For example, Docker can be used as a portable apt repository to install packages on any server, not only in a container. Another example is to use Docker (and LinuxKit) as a way to distribute Docker images when a registry isn’t available.

*About the Speaker:*
Dex Horthy, is a Core Engineer at Replicated. He has spent the last year designing and writing production grade enterprise software for the Replicated platform, including container orchestration runtimes and custom integrations into the Kubernetes and Docker APIs.

Here's a comprehensive map of all the available parking spots:

Once Blackwelder is full we suggest you find street parking on La Cienega Blvd or the free public lot at the corner of Fairfax and Adams (also marked on the map). The La Cienega stop on the Metro Expo line is close to the venue. There will also be enough free beer that Uber might be a good choice :)
