Randy Shoup talks about designing and building microservices based on his experience of working at large companies, such as Google and eBay. Topics covered include the real impact of Conway's law, how to decide when to move to a microservice-based architecture, organizing team structure around microservices, and where to focus on the standardization of technology and process.
Anil Madhavapeddy describes why unikernels have important security properties, how they can be built, and how they can be utilised alongside of Docker containers. He stresses the importance of type safe languages, particularly OCaml, which was used for the Mirage OS project, but also touches upon Go and Rust.
Steve Thair on introducing DevOps in large organizations, the particular challenges they face (from ROI based finance models to technical debt to improving communication) and how to address them.
Mitchell Hashimoto explains how Vagrant, Consul, Terraform and Atlas help developers and ops to set up complex systems and keep them running. Also: Go as a language for tools.
Camille Fournier explains consensus systems ZooKeeper, etcd, and Consul: how they work, what they do, how they differ from each other. Also: must-read papers in distributed programming.
The Internet of Things is becoming a part of our lives right now - we are measuring health, we are connecting to our cars, we can open our front door while being half-way around the globe. And while we can benefit from all the sensors and actors around us, there is also a big risk of losing control and data. Paul Fremantle shares some knowledge on potential threads and what we can do about them.
Matthew Skelton talks about the challenges to DevOps and Continuous Delivery adoption, what's the impact of microservices in this space, how to leverage ITIL, and DevOps team topologies.
How do you create hits in mobile gaming? Jesper Richter-Reichhelm, Head of Engineering at Wooga, tells us about the challenges of mobile game development. How do you find the right story for a game, what technological base is the right one? And after all, what are the indications that a game might not be a hit which leads to stopping the project even right before global launch?
Rebecca Parsons, Thoughtworks CTO, on microservices: prerequisites, challenges and benefits. Also insights on designing services for scalability, handling failure and eventual consistency.
Jessica Frazelle tells InfoQ what it's like to work at Docker open source, what are some of the goals for Docker Inc in the near future and the rational between Docker's clustering solution (Swarm).
ClusterHQ founder Luke Marsden talks about ZFS, and why it's taken so long to become production ready on Linux. He then discussed how he's bringing ZFS based tools to the Docker ecosystem, and building a tech startup in the South West of England.
