  • 9:00 - 12:30Workshop: GitLab/CI BasicsSpeaker: Niclas Mietz

    Abstract:
    Whether small startups or large companies - many of them rely on the open-source Docker technology. But what about the kind of containers that roll up the virtualization market and change the software development in the long term? Docker promises a quick start, flexible configuration and stable images for development and production. Nice, but a developer or operator must be present in order to setup automation, to build, test and deliver Docker images. At this workshop you learn how to setup GitLab/CI with the objective to maintain your project sources, automate your Continuous Integration and Delivery pipeline for simple Docker images.

  • 13:30 - 17:00Workshop: Groovy integration testing with Docker and TestContainersSpeaker: Kevin Wittek and Matthias Rottländer

    Abstract:
    Use a production-like, portable test environment described in code - gone is the need for heavyweight manual setup of test systems and the pain of sharing test infrastructure with multiple developers and teams. Launch a fully functional testing suite not only consisting of unit tests, but also of integration tests, right from source control. And instead of manually writing and maintaining a bunch of brittle bash scripts for instrumenting your containers, participants will learn to leverage existing knowledge in writing JUnit tests and make use of the powerful TestContainers Java library.

  • 10:15 - 11:00Deploying and managing production-grade Kubernetes clusters with RancherSpeaker: Jan Bruder

    Abstract:
    Running containers in production requires a wide variety of technologies, which must be integrated and managed throughout their lifecycle. Kubernetes provides the orchestration and management capabilities required to deploy containers for distributed application workloads and is becoming the most widley adopted container orchestration on the market. But configuring and deploying Kubernetes as well as combining the orchestrator with a constantly changing set of technologies can be challenging with a steep learning curve. During the talk we will show how the Rancher container management platform addresses these challenges and facilitates the operation of production-grade Kubernetes clusters on any infrastructure.
