"Using Docker in production: Get started today!" by Clarence Bakirtzidis

Sep 18, 2017 · Brisbane City, Australia

Adopting Docker for production applications and services used to be hard. You had to hand-roll a lot of the underlying infrastructure and write lots of custom code for service discovery, load balancing, orchestration, desired state, etc. Today, with he rise of open source container orchestration platforms and cloud native offerings, it's a lot easier to get up and running.

This talk will give a quick recap of Docker, the past and the present. We'll then look at the operational concerns for adopting Docker in production and then we'll wrap up with a live demo where we'll take an application from laptop to the cloud.
