This week I’m attending DockerCon in Barcelona and Data Natives in Berlin. I’m excited to be participating in both conferences: At DockerCon I’ll be moderating several sessions in the Use Cases track of the conference. At Data Natives I’ll be moderating a panel discussion on predictive analytics in e-commerce.
This is my third DockerCon and I’m looking forward to the update on what Docker and its rapidly growing ecosystem is up to. The conference has already started and you can follow my thoughts on the event on Twitter.
I’ll be moderating the following sessions in the Use Cases track on Tuesday:
- Trading Bitcoin with Docker. Sebastien will be talking the Bity internet money gateway build by Swiss Bitcoin Exchange (SBEX), which uses a highly automated Docker-based development pipeline.
- Continuous Integration with Jenkins, Docker and Compose. As a wannabe polyglot, I’m looking forward to hearing Sandro Cirulli present the work he’s doing at Oxford University Press to provide language resources for digitally under-represented languages, and how they’ve used Docker to automate their CI workflow.
- The Glue is the Hard Part: Making a Production-Ready PaaS. Yelp’s Evan Krall will discuss PaaSTA, the platform-as-a-service environment they open-sourced last week, which is based on Docker, Mesos, Marathon, and Chronos.
If you’re at DockerCon, please check out these sessions. Also, I’ve got a few available slots for briefings, so if you’re working on something interesting, let’s connect.
Data Natives is a new conference being put on by Berlin-based Dataconomy. The conference focuses on three key data-centric innovation areas–big data, IoT and FinTech–and I’m excited to be participating. The conference agenda looks great, spanning topics such as how machine learning and data science are disrupting industries, the business value of data, IoT in large-scale industrial environments, petascale genomics, big data and the bitcoin blockchain and much more.
The speaker line-up at Data Natives is top notch and includes folks like Kirk Borne, Mike Gualtieri, and Alistair Croll. I’m looking forward to catching up with these guys, seeing their presentations, and meeting new folks at the event.
I’m moderating a panel on big data in e-Commerce on Thursday afternoon, with executives from Amazon and others.
