About this event

Bring your lunch and learn more about container networking with Jonathan Hood as your guide. This is going to be a fantastic talk you won’t want to miss.

Container networks are something you interact with every day, even if you don’t know it. Whether you are running containers in the cloud on Kubernetes, or locally using something like docker compose, you have probably dealt with networking issues between containers by scratching your head and copy-pasting from stack overflow. Lets dive into depths of container networking to demystify the nuts and bolts behind how containers communicate with each other. This talk will cover single-host container networking using Linux bridges, multi-host overlay networking using vxlan, and conclude with a discussion on cloud-native service discovery strategies that can help you applications adapt to dynamic networking environments.

Jonathan Hood is a Software Engineer working for ADTRAN with a long history of working with Docker in production environments. He is an avid Scala programmer and Python tinkerer. You can get in contact with him via his web site at
