Everyone’s heard about Docker and how it’s going to solve all of our problems, or not. In this session, we’ll walk you through using Docker and discuss why using a scheduler and orchestration system is important. Then we’ll dive into actual usage of the container application platform, OpenShift Origin, to show how it makes both Docker and Kubernetes accessible to the average human being. We’ll keep the slides to a minimum and instead focus on live demo/coding/deployments. After deploying several containers, we’ll turn up the heat by showcasing scaling and moving on to deployment strategies including blue/green.
