I’m back at Windy City Rails! Dr. Nic started things off with his talk, “The New Era of Orchestration: From Docker to BOSH to Cloud Foundry.”
First off, though, Dr. Nic mentioned a book called The Phoenix Project, and I’m a sucker for book recommendations so that’s getting a shoutout. If enough of you tweet Gene Kim, maybe we’ll get a discount code. They gave ChefConf 2013 50% off, and don’t see why we’re not just as good as whoever was at that conference.
Dr. Nic also mentioned this 12factor set of SaaS development orchestration guidelines.
Dr. Nic also talked about Docker—the highky-regarded distributed application platfcorm—and discussed its limitations (that it’s built to run on just one machine being a biggie).
