Martin Paulo, OpenStack Heat

Heat is a template driven application management tool for the
OpenStack cloud. In this talk Martin will introduce Heat. His
goal is to give the audience enough information to enable them
to start managing their own applications on the OpenStack cloud
with Heat.

Martin Paulo is a software developer with V3. Way back when
Martin started out writing assembly for embedded systems. From
there, via grid programming, he made the move to more
conventional software development, as a Java developer in the
financial services arena. At V3 Martin has worked on and with
the NeCTAR (National eResearch Collaboration Tools and
Resources) research cloud: possibly the largest and most complex
OpenStack deployment in Australia.

Kevin Littlejohn, Docker – Containerize all the things!

A short overview of Docker – what it is, how it works, how it’s
being used, and some examples of what can be done with it (and
war stories of what can go wrong).

Kevin Littlejohn started life as a sysadmin, has spent much of
the last few years as a developer, and is now being swept up
into the devops world. He spends his days working at DiUS
consulting to customers for programming, ops or both as the need
arises, and his evenings wrangling two small children, neither
of whom care about dev or ops (yet).
