About this event


This month we're doing a combined Kubernetes / Docker Meetup.. So if you're a member of both meetups.. you'll probably see the same information twice... ;)

Why are we doing this? Simply because they fall on both the same night and I am helping out with organising the Kubernetes meetup.. 

Big thanks for Dell EMC for hosting and to Microsoft of sponsoring this combined meetup :)

I have also been able to arrange an international speaker Claus Isben, Principle Engineer from Redhat and author of Camel in Action, to talk about Agile integration with containers on Kubernetes. Claus presentation will be a mixture of slides and a demo. His presentation will be geared towards developers being a developer himself :)

From the Docker perspective I will be doing a lightning talk on Docker's storage plugin ClousStor which is part of Docker for AWS, but I'll show you how you can use it with your existing AWS (and potentially Azure) setup..

On that note, the Docker community is a friendly crowd, and we encourage our members to actively participate.  So this could be your chance.  Please get in touch if you want to present something...

Also as always can you please update your RSVP status for catering purposes.

I look forward to see you!

Title:  Native Docker Persistance Strorage Setup

Presenter: Ben Griffin (DevOps Manager, Dubber)

Persistent storage has always been a difficult problem to solve and there are myriad of solutions available some of which are OSS and others aren't. Tonight I am going to demonstrate how you can use Docker's native Cloudstor driver to achieve data persistence backed by an AWS EBS volume across availability zones.


Title:  Agile Integration with Apache Camel microservices in containers on Kubernetes

Presenter: Claus Isben (Principle Engineer, Redhat)

How to get started developing Camel microservices (or any Java technology for that matter) on a local Kubernetes cluster from zero to deployment.

As a Java developer it may be daunting to know how to get started how to develop container applications that runs on Kubernetes cluster. 

Using minikube its very easy to run a local cluster and with the help of fabric8 tooling its even easier to install and run using familiar tools like Maven. In this talk we will build a set of Apache Camel and Java based Microservices that uses Spring Boot and WildFly Swarm. With the help of fabric8 maven tooling you will see how to build, deploy, and run your Java projects on a Kubernetes cluster (local or remote). And even live debugging is easy to do as well. 

We will discuss practices how to build distributed and fault tolerant microservices using technologies such as Kubernetes Services, Netflix Hysterix, and Camel EIP patterns for fault tolerance. In the talk you will also hear about related open source projects where you can go explore more such as fabric8,, istio, etc. This presentation is a 50/50 mix between slides and demo.
