Intro to Orchestration/Workshop!

Wed, May 9, 2018, 6:00 PM (EDT)

About this event

We're on the last of the four-part 101 series! So, we'll start talking about orchestration, covering why we need it, what it provides, and how we use it.  While there are several orchestration frameworks out there (Swarm, Kubernetes, and Mesos to name a few), we'll start with Swarm as it's the easiest to get up and running and will help you understand the basics.  And, for many use cases, it's more than adequate.  We'll talk about orchestration, placement constraints, Swarm secrets, and more!

Afterwards, we'll work through a workshop together, so be sure to bring your own machine (go ahead and install Docker on it) and be ready to put everything we've talked about to work!
