Workshop: "Building Microservices With Docker"

Time: Thursday 09:00 - 16:00 / Location: Room 1

Microservices - small, independently deployable autonomous services - are all the rage at the moment. But one of the main impediments to making them work is having access to the appropriate technology to deploy and manage them. This is where Docker comes in. In this hands-on workshop, attendees will learn about both the theory and practice of using Docker to manager microservices.
Topics include:
  • The core ideas behind microservices
  • Creating a working microservices platform on your laptop
  • A comparison with other deployment options
  • Running Docker in production, including logging, service discovery and monitoring concerns
  • Discussion of multi-host Docker
Attendees will be expected to be savvy with a command-line. Windows and OSX are supported by use of a Vagrant tutorial image. We will expect attendees to install the latest version of vagrant prior to attending, and have 10GB of disk space free for the tutorial image.
