DevOps'n the Operating System



John Willis takes a brief look at the history of how Devops principles and operating systems have converged. He spends most of the time forward looking at what and how unikernels will converge with Devops tools, processes and culture. He ends with a demo of how containers, unikernels and Devops ideas can work together in the future.


John Willis is Director of Ecosystem Development for Docker, which he joined after the company he co-founded, SocketPlane, was acquired by Docker. Previous to founding SocketPlane, he was the Chief DevOps Evangelist at Dell. He has also held past executive roles at Opscode/Chef and Canonical/Ubuntu. He is the author of 7 IBM Redbooks and is co-author of the “Devops Handbook”.
