[Update – 4th June; the video of my pitch is now available – best listened to alongside the slides below.]
Earlier this week, I presented Project Calico to the Docker London meetup near Old Street. This was my first time presenting in front of a meetup, but judging from the questions and discussion afterwards, I think I got the key ideas across!
If you’re interested, my slides for the event should be at the bottom of this post and can be downloaded here.
I was sharing the event with a couple of other great talks.
- First up, Alex Collins gave a fascinating insight into some of the work he’d done on getting Docker working alongside Apache Maven. His foils are here.
- Then, after a Pizza and beer break, the folks from Resin.io gave a great demonstration of their system for pushing updates to IoT devices over slow networks; their system ensures that only the essential changes to an image are distributed, meaning each device can be updated as quickly as possible. Their talk included a great demo where they were updating large container images on a set of 20 Raspberry Pi devices over a single 3G connection in a matter of seconds.
As always, if anyone would like anyone from the Calico team to speak at their meetup, then please get in touch!
