Featured talk “Supercharge your development environment using Docker”

The talk “Supercharge your development environment using Docker" will be given by Deni Bertovic.

Docker is an open-source engine that automates the deployment of any application as a lightweight, portable, self-sufficient container that will run virtually anywhere.

Docker containers can encapsulate any payload, and will run consistently on and between virtually any server. The same container that a developer builds and tests on a laptop will run at scale, in production*, on VMs, bare-metal servers, OpenStack clusters, public instances, or combinations of the above.

The idea of this talk is to convey how important it is that we have our development environment as close to production as possible. That means setting up all those various services on your laptop/workstation.

Deni Bertovic will show to utilize light weight lxc containers. Using docker, and make your development process much more straightforward. How to share container images among your development team and be sure that everyone is running the exact same stack. Do all this without hogging too many resources, without the need for complex provisioning scripts and management systems. And above all else, how to do it fast!

Deni Bertovic is a Software Engineer frfrom Zagreb/Croatia, currently focusing mainly on Python but he is also fluent with Clojure, Haskell and other functional programming languages in general. He works as system administrator and Devop with a special interest in virtualization and automating stuff. Apart from that he is happily coding away at goodcode.io.
