Yesterday, on Wednesday November 27th, Tutum organized and hosted, at the NXTP Labs offices, the first Docker Meetup in Buenos Aires.
We feel very strong about how awesome Docker is and wanted to share this awesome open-source project with the community here in the Argentine capital.
The meetup was quite successful and we got a diverse set of “techies” to show up, from devops to developers, the whole gamut of profiles was represented.
I did an initial introduction to the project itself and the idea behind it. Fernando followed with a hands on tutorial, where he showed the guests how to go from 0 to running a full-fledge MongoDB in a Docker container. He touched on various topics and even introduced more advanced topics, such as registries (public and private), container linking, AUFS and Dockerfiles, among others. I followed up on Fernando’s great tutorial, with a presentation of the various projects that have originated around Docker, from PaaS services, such as OpenShift, VOXOZ, DEIS, Flynn… to other integration with services such as OpenStack, and other technologies: puppet, chef, saltstack. Also introduced were tools and services that have been created specifically for Docker, among others we talked about Orchard, StackMachine, StackDock, Shipyard, Quay.io, Dockify.io and our very own Tutum.
I’ll be putting another post and include the awesome tutorial that Fernando put together.
It was a pleasure meeting everybody! Sure hope to see you again at our next meetup.
