Very excited to kick off the next DockerNYC event with Lifion and IBM. Doug Davis from IBM will be telling us about the Open Service Broker API, and Srdjan Strbanovic, our Lifion Host, will be telling us about Docker-native Functions-as-a-Service and Microservices. We’ll also have one of Docker’s own, Brian Kaufman to go over the latest and greatest features in the newest release of Docker Community Edition, 17.06.
-Jesse White, Event Organizer & Host
What’s new in Docker Community Edition 17.06?
Brian Kaufman, Solutions Engineer at Docker, Inc
Docker CE 17.06 is the first Docker version built entirely on the Moby Project, which we announced in April at DockerCon. You can see the complete list of changes in the changelog, but with this talk we’ll jump into new features and demo some of the exciting new functionality.
What can the Open Service Broker API do for you?
Doug Davis, STSM, Cloud OpenSource and Standards, IBM Digital Business Group
Doug Davis works in the OpenSource & Standards, Digital Business Group, at IBM focusing on enhancing, promoting and integrating Cloud Native technologies (such as Docker and Kubernetes) into IBM's cloud offerings. Throughout his career he's been involved in numerous other open-source projects and standards, such as CloudFoundry, Apache Axis, CIMI as well most of the SOAP-related specifications. He's played a key role in IBM's participation in standards bodies such as W3C, OASIS and the DMTF.
The Open Service Broker (OSB) API is a relatively new project aimed at bringing CloudFoundry's Service Broker model to the broader Cloud Native (CN) community. The OSB API enables application developers, through a simple set of APIs, to leverage external services without the need to manage them themselves - freeing them to focus on their business logic. Other CN communities, such as Kubernetes, are already adding support. This talk will explain what the OSB API is and what it might look like if Docker were to support this as a first class feature.
We’ll run through a demo showing creating a service and hooking it up to a Docker app. We’ll then take that app and show how it can be leveraged by orchestration systems including Docker Swarm, Cloud Foundry and Kubernetes, allowing people to choose the best platform to host their app but still get to the same service (e.g. same data if its a DB service).
Native Docker FaaS and Microservices
Srdjan is a versatile technologist with proven record of developing commercially successful software. He’s very experienced in driving software engineering initiatives for varied business contexts, and with the ability to deliver user-centric solutions, define strategy and lead innovation.
Srdjan will be covering Docker-native Microservces and how they can be implemented in your ecosystem. We’ll explore serverless “functions-as-a-service” and how they can be leveraged in a Microservice platforms.
