EMC Dojo is at EMC World!
Come check out our sessions and play #Dojosnake! Scroll to see more!
What’s up at our Booth?
Come to booth #1051# to see what the EMC Dojo is up to! Learn more about persistence on Diego, UniK unikernel support for Cloud Foundry + Docker, RackHD CPI, & our other OSS Cloud Foundry projects!
Want to try pair programming? Give it a try at our booth! See how easy it is to $CF push apps to Cloud Foundry & pair with us on #Dojosnake! Won’t be able to make it to Vegas this year? Then see if you can beat the high score and play #Dojosnake! Make sure you tweet and follow @EMCdojo to get on the leaderboard 🙂
If you will be in Vegas, come to one (or more!) of our sessions listed below. Hope to see you there!
Enterprise DevOps: Balancing Innovation Velocity With Business Requirements w. Cloud Foundry Foundation CEO Sam Ramji
The emerging model of DevOps in IT is accelerating digital business transformation around the globe. This model is very different than the traditional application development model that has been the cornerstone of IT for decades. New innovations in software can now be delivered with greater velocity, lower cost, better quality and increased customer adoption. However, balancing the governance, risk and compliance requirements of the business remain challenging with this new model. In fact, many of the attributes of ‘dev’ and ‘ops’ are diametrically opposed. This session focuses on aspects of DevOps that enable the balance of innovation velocity with business GRC requirements. This includes a deeper look and comparison of the new application lifecycle, the business lifecycle, developer frameworks, Platform as a Service (specifically Cloud Foundry) and Infrastructure as a Service alternatives.
Steps To DevOps: A Pragmatic Look At Lean
Tuesday May 3, 1:30 PM – 2:30 PM Venetian A @BrianRocheBOS
There is a secular shift at play within the IT industry. Traditional markets are eroding rapidly. As organizations seek to innovate using new digital business mediums, many are moving their infrastructures to the cloud. A major challenge they find is that building cloud apps not only means a whole new set of tools, but also a new mindset. In-house software capabilities are becoming a must to compete, but the transition to DevOps and the cloud is not an easy one.
Unikernels: What Are They, Why They Matter & Our New UniK Cloud Foundry Experience
Wednesday May 4, 8:30 AM – 9:30 AM Marcello 4405 @Idit_Levine
The Unikernel – an executable image that can run natively on a hypervisor without the need for a separate operating system – is rapidly gaining momentum. In order to integrate unikernels into your ecosystem, the PaaS needs to provide unikernels with the same services they provide for containers. This session talks about unikernels and show you UNIK, our answer to providing PaaS support to unikernels. Unik is an orchestration system for unikernels that is integrated as a backend to Cloud Foundry runtime.
Building A Cloud Foundry Dojo: A Model For Open Source Communities
Cloud native applications need to be deployed to any cloud, at any time which requires an effective open platform-as-a-service. Cloud Foundry is the first and only cloud native application platform in the industry and is built by an open source community. Last year, the Cloud Foundry Foundation established a goal to increase the number of cloud foundry ‘dojos’ where open source developers could be trained to be effective Contributors & this year we launched the EMC CF Dojo on both coasts. Growing open source communities requires selecting the right people, with the right set of skills, and cultivating an environment that fosters innovation, productivity, collaboration and fun. Learn about the experiences that were gained in building the first cloud foundry dojo outside of Pivotal Labs in San Francisco. The session highlights the selection process of candidates, their training experiences, the work environment the projects that the developers have worked on – and the SW transformation that took place.
Layer-X: Developing & Managing Disparate Application Workloads & Matching Task Schedulers To The Right Resource Managers
Mesos excels at sharing a common set of resources among multiple applications. However, the job of scheduling and management is left to the individual frameworks running on top of Mesos, which only know about their own tasks. As a result, frameworks must make decisions with “global”, cluster-wide consequences based only on a restricted “local” view. Thursday, May 5, 11:30 AM – 12:30 PM
