Vagrant vs. Docker - Automating Your Environment
Are Vagrant and Docker competing technologies? Can the two of them co-exist or, even synergize? Join Rohit Dantas, Senior Software Engineer at AKQA, and take a peek at what environments each of them targets, as well as the set (or subset) of features they provide. You'll also spin up Vagrant box(es) and Docker container(s) for similar environments, to see first-hand how easy (or difficult) it is to do and compare the performance of these actions.View Slides

Delving Into Docker
Docker has been one of the highest trending technologies over the past year, kindling interest in platform developers and infrastructure providers alike. Calum Lacroix, DevOps Enginer at Cloudreach, will take you on a deep-sea dive into the Docker application, examining each of the modules and features that make-up the Docker application, surfacing briefly to discuss shipping and automation and getting back to land to inspect some real-life use cases and ponder the future of this new layer of computational abstraction. By the time the wind settles we will hope to understand what Docker is, it's future coordinates and bearings and where we could use it to improve our own applications.

DevOps In The Real World
Adopting DevOps on our projects has been a major boost to helping us go faster – the benefits have repaid the initial investment many times over. This talk will go through our use with complex Adobe CQ / AEM & Java projects, what we learned and how you could adopt for your work. We will cover Vagrant & Chef Solo for setting up local workstations, Amazon EC2 and VMWare VSphere.View Slides
