Welcome To BayPIGgies
Next Meeting: Feb. 26, 2015 @ LinkedIn, Mtn. View (across the street from our usual location)
Topic: Scaling Clusters Declaratively with Containers and Kubernetes
Speaker: Brian Dorsey (Developer Advocate at Google)
Linux containers (Docker, etc.) are a great way to deploy Python
processes and make sure all of their required dependencies are
available. Once you start running a lot of containers, managing them
becomes a challenge.
Kubernetes (http://kubernetes.io) is an open source cluster manager and scheduler that simplifies deploying and managing the containers that make up your application. You declare the desired state and Kubernetes does the work to keep it that way. It assigns resources, recovers from failures and scales easily.
Brian will give a brief overview of containers, introduce Kubernetes and do a live demonstration of moving from a single Docker container to many containers running across a cluster of machines with Kubernetes.
I've taught Python at the University of Washington and have spoken at both PyCon US and PyCon Japan. I'm a bit of a Python fan (understatement). I'm currently learning Go and enjoying it.
I love it when people use technology to improve in-person communication. I've done some experiments via coworking, ad hoc lunch gatherings and mini hackathons. It's great to see all the experimentation in this area. We live in amazing times!
