Track: Containers: From Dev to Prod
Day of week:
Containers came to prominence a couple of years ago with the promise of portability, flexibility and rapid deployments. They remain a hot topic in the industry and there are several success stories of companies deriving business value from the use of containers; especially in the area of developer experience. At the same time, container technology and the surrounding ecosystem are evolving very rapidly, which makes it difficult to assess its readiness for production use.
In this track, we will hear from practitioners who are leveraging containers as part of their software delivery processes for a better developer experience, simplified operations, efficient resource utilization, or all of the above. Speakers will share their experiences in tackling the complex challenges around CI/CD, scheduling and orchestration, service discovery, monitoring etc. and what it takes to truly reap the benefits of container technology.

Security @Mesosphere, Former @Docker Maintainer
This talk will cover the differences between application sandboxes and containers. The most well known sandbox is Chrome, for providing "hard guarantees about what ultimately a piece of code can or cannot do no matter what its inputs are". At its core, the Linux Chrome sandbox uses namespaces along with seccomp and other native features to provide these guarantees. Containers are composed of the same primitives.

Software Engineer @Spotify
Spotify adopted container technology early on and built its own OSS framework for container orchestration called Helios. Not only do containers run many critical systems at Spotify, they also improve and accelerate development. We run containerized integration tests close to 400 times a day.
This talk covers how our Helios testing framework drives integration tests and spins up entirely self-contained environments during test...

SVP Engineering, HBC Digital / Gilt & Commiter Apache Karaf
It's been almost three years since Gilt embarked on adopting containers, first using LXC in our physical data-centre in Japan, and then adopting Docker on a mix of physical hardware and virtual machines in Amazon. We've used Docker for continuous, repeatable, immutable deployments of our applications and services; we've used Docker for repeatable build systems, we've also used Docker as a foundational part of the distributed job system 'SunDial' that powers our...
