Submitted on 2014-09-16 06:18
"Software defined everything," DevOps, and cloud are driving open source further and faster than we might have imagined possible just a decade ago. Most recently, Docker containers and orchestration have opened up all kinds of new opportunities to develop, deploy, and manage software from the developer's desktop well into production.
The linux.conf.au 2015 organisers are pleased to announce the Clouds, Containers, and Orchestration miniconf at LCA in Auckland, New Zealand during January 2015. The miniconf will focus on the open source tools and best practices for working with cloud tools, containers, and orchestration software (e.g., Kubernetes, Apache Mesos, geard, and others). We'll have the leading developers working on those tools, as well as users who are deploying them in real production environments to share their knowledge and show where tools will be going in 2015.
Joe Brockmeier, the miniconf organiser, has a long history of involvement with Linux and open source. Currently he works on Red Hat's Open Source and Standards (OSAS) team, and is involved with Project Atomic, the Fedora Project's Cloud Working Group, is a member of the Apache Software Foundation. He is a technology journalist and has written for ReadWriteWeb, LWN, Linux.com, Linux Magazine, Linux Pro Magazine, ZDNet, and many others.
