Post October Followup

I’m sitting in my hotel room after the initial get together at LISA15. Since I’m a little tired and the tutorials start tomorrow morning, I decided to take a quiet evening and catch up on a few things. One of those being the followup to last month’s meeting.

While we still had a smaller crowd, the topic was interesting, at least to me. I finally got around to doing a basic talk on docker. As I’m far from an expert, it was not terribly detailed, but it was a new topic for the people attending. The part that didn’t seem to be obvious until I pointed it out was that I was running software in a container that was using a different OS. It was so fast and seamless on the command line that nobody noticed it until I explicitly pointed it out. Something tells me that there will be a followup talk with some better examples in the new year.

Next month will be the post LISA talk where I’ll be talking about interesting concepts from the conference, some LOPSA info and probably picking topics for next year.

As a reminder, we will be having our annual social instead of a talk in December. This will be a Monday night, Dec 14 at 7:00pm. I’ll need a count of people for the reservation, so send me an email if you are going and if you will be bringing a guest.
