cloud conference sessions

3:30pm–5:00pm Monday, 10/12/2015
Jeremy Edberg (MinOps)
Slides:   1-PDF 
A system is only as reliable as its weakest link, and the only way to find those links is to constantly break your systems. Your backup isn't useful unless you test restoration, and your system isn't reliable unless you break it on purpose. Hear all the latest in availability testing, describing not only what, but why, and how, success rates, and how we gain resilience by breaking things.
9:00am–12:30pm Monday, 10/12/2015
John Willis (Docker)
A comprehensive overview of Docker. We will cover all the basics of the product. By the end of this session you should be able to install Docker, run Docker containers, and build images. If time permits we will also cover Docker Machine, Compose, and Swarm.
2:10pm–2:50pm Wednesday, 10/14/2015
Brandon Philips (CoreOS, Inc)
The architectural patterns of large-scale infrastructure are changing. The last decade we sped up server acquisition by putting software and APIs in control of the base infrastructure. This decade we will make our infrastructure better at running our applications easily, securely, and consistently.
3:30pm–5:00pm Monday, 10/12/2015
Chris Hawley (Blackrock 3 Partners), Ron Vidal (Blackrock 3 Partners), Rob Schnepp (Blackrock 3 Partners)
The Incident Management System (IMS) has been battle tested by the American fire service for over 40 years across fires, rescues, hazardous materials incidents, and every other type of emergency. Learn how we’ve adapted IMS for IT, and get an early look at content from our forthcoming book from O’Reilly Media: "Incident Management for IT Operations."
1:15pm–1:55pm Wednesday, 10/14/2015
Evan Gilman (N/A)
Slides:   1-PDF 
The notion of a perimeter-less network has never been more pertinent. With the transition to the cloud leaving us less network control than ever before, it's clear that the old patterns will no longer suffice. In this talk, we'll discuss how software-defined network policy, combined with distributed enforcement, can lead to a network of systems that distinctly lack structure or organization.
4:35pm–5:15pm Wednesday, 10/14/2015
Bridget Kromhout (Microsoft), Peter Shannon (DramaFever)
At DramaFever, the largest streaming video site for international content, we operate a next-generation internet TV platform using Docker, Chef, Packer, and more to manage the AWS instances serving our main Django application and Go microservices. We’ll detail how we build and scale our infrastructure to serve more than 20 million viewers.
11:20am–12:00pm Wednesday, 10/14/2015
Bryan Cantrill (Joyent)
Hardware hypervisors were a first generation approach to the challenges of resource and security isolation, but they’re unnecessarily shackling the future of containers. Joyent CTO Bryan Cantrill will discuss why the hardware hypervisor layer is unnecessarily restrictive, and how we can more efficiently run containers in production by deploying directly on bare metal.
11:20am–12:00pm Wednesday, 10/14/2015
Pete Cheslock (Threat Stack)
Computers are hard, and security is even harder. Let's discuss the role of security in this new *aaS landscape. We'll talk about things to do when you have a dedicated InfoSec team, tools you can use when you don't, and how you can strengthen your security posture while maintaining your ability to move quickly and deliver value to your customers.
