Docker Meetup

The Docker Edinburgh meetup takes place at Codebase, in their Event Space, which is accessible from the entrance on 38 Castle Terrace. The meetup will run from around 18h30 to 20h00, with further discussion afterwards in the pub! Cloudsoft will be sponsoring the meetup, and pizza and beer will be provided.

Please let us know what sort of speakers or topics you would like to see at future Meetups, or if there are alternative formats like lightning talks that would prefer.

We're always looking for new speakers, so please get in touch if you have something you'd like to present about Docker or the wider DevOps community!


*Kai Davenport - "Bringing data into the circle of control - Data management is killing your velocity!"

Data management issues cause tremendous pain throughout the software development life cycle, and the increased adoption of cloud native computing practices is exacerbating the problem as applications change faster and employ multiple databases behind their microservices.

Version control and software testing allow you to control your code, immutable infrastructure allows you to tame your infrastructure, but data is largely still managed using a set of flaky and disparate tools and practices.

In this talk Kai will highlight three areas where data is causing software teams to grind to a halt and will explain why this is happening.

Finally, he’ll introduce dotmesh an open source tool that we’ve developed which we think starts to address these issues.

*Kai's Bio

Kai is an engineer for dotmesh and likes to stay on his toes doing work in different aspects of the stack, including ops (with k8s & gitlab), backend services (node.js, golang) and frontend development (JS, React, Redux). In a previous role, he was a developer advocate for ClusterHQ and continues his involvement in the world of storage by his work for dotmesh and writing the occasional blog-post for Portworx. He also run's an Ethereum meetup in Bristol and will talk for days about computers unless you tell him to stop and take a breath. His favourite colour is orange and he likes to blast drum-and-bass in his headphones whilst furiously being unproductive at the keyboard.

*2nd Talk TBC.
