Devnexus 2012

DEVNEXUS 2012

We are having an incredible line-up of presenters covering a wide array of crucial topics. Also, this year we are expanding to 6 tracks with 48 sessions and 3 keynotes! In addition to providing great content for Java developers, DevNexus is a very valuable networking opportunity. This event attracts Java/JVM talent from the South-East’s largest corporations, software companies and consulting organizations. You will have an opportunity to discover what other development teams are using as their favorite tools and practices.

What?

Atlanta’s most exciting conference for professional software developers is back in 2012! Come discover how the industry’s best minds use the latest technologies to build solutions to business problems. Network with other Atlanta software developers, and study real life case studies in application design and development.

Our first five conference events were tremendous successes. Skip the travel headaches, expense, and mobs of people at other conferences and join us this March to experience one of the best developer conferences, presented by your fellow developers, right in the heart of the Southeast (and in your own backyard).

This conference is an incredible value. Not only do we provide exceptional speakers and presentations but we also provide book raffles, food, a cocktail hour for networking and mingling with the speakers and much more.

Server to Cloud – convert a legacy platform to a micro-PaaS using Docker

April 15, 2014

The talk will begin with how to setup a local Docker development environment (Windows or Mac OSX) as Docker runs atop Linux. The basics of Docker will be examined including how to use image repositories, and a brief description of available UI’s for managing Docker containers (Shipyard and DockerUI).

Next, example applications will be built for progressively more robust use cases and deployments; to demonstrate the power, flexibility and scalability of Containerization with Docker. The first example will discuss a simple two container model to encapsulate a database and application layer, which will lead to demonstration and discussion about more robust deployments that include features such as service discovery, automatic load balancing, and abstractions to simplify linking of containers. The context of the talk with be how Containerization enables architectural choice, scalability, and polyglot environments.

Docker and supporting technologies will be discussed to expose the multitude of supporting technologies within the ecosystem such as Flynn, Serf (makes or Vagrant), CoreOS, Deus, HAProxy and more.

Technologies that may be employed within containers during the demonstration include, Java, Scala, Akka, Docker, vert.x or node.js, memcached, mysql, mongo.”
