Docker Meetup

  • CodeBase Edinburgh 38 Castle Terrace Edinburgh, Scotland, EH3 9DZ United Kingdom (map)


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.

This meetup coincides with the Open Source Summit in Edinburgh, so we're in the process of poaching some top quality speakers. I'll update with more details later in the week.

Please note that I've moved the date and time of this meetup in an attempt to fit in with the OSS schedule.


** Vincent Batts - "Connecting Dots for Container Runtimes" **

"Since Docker came on the scene in 2013, for many it was the first they'd heard of containers. They existed before, but have exploded since then. Today if you intend on running containers in production, you will be primarily concerned with the Kubernetes level, but what is happening below? What does the layered structure mean for direct access and on-going developer experience?"

Vincent Batts has spent half his life in Linux and open source communities. An Open Containers Initiative maintainer and technical board member. An ongoing member on Slackware Linux's Core Team, past maintainer on the Docker project, and the past maintainer of the Go
compiler for Fedora and Red Hat. He currently works in emerging technology on Red Hat CTO's Office.


I'm also talking a couple of other luminaries of containers and will update soon!
