Meet up

Painless deployment of Docker on AWS and A Tale of Two Deployments

Monday, 9th May at CodeNode, London

This meetup was organised by LRUG: London Ruby User Group in May 2016


Are you interested in painless deployment of Docker on AWS and productive code reviews? Join us for this LRUG meetup for some great talks on efficient deployment and code reviews!

The Art of Code Review

Most of us do some form of code review, increasingly often through pull requests. Done well it can be a great tool for improving quality, sharing knowledge, and building a sense of cohesion in a team. Done badly it can be toxic. In this talk I’d like to look at the motivations for code review, examine research into its value, and suggest some practices on how to do it well.

John Cinnamond

A computer programmer by day, by night I am transformed into…someone who programmes computers. Sometimes I take a break from all of this computer programming to think about how programming really works, or what computation really is. I once met a giant weetabix. My life is pretty rad.

A Tale of Two Deployments - Machine Images, Immutable

Imagine some of the worst things that could happen to you during ‘cap deploy' - well, they happened to Ali on the same day, and it turned into one of the worst days of his life. Interestingly, Sally in the office across the street had the exact same issues come up during her deployment. However her team had invested in their infrastructure sensibly, and deployed fresh immutable server clusters from pre-built machine images on each deploy. She could just relax, as the infrastructure had been designed to filter out most problems that could occur during deployment. In this talk, Asfand will share their story.

Convox: Painless deployment of Docker on AWS

Bit Zesty have been playing with Docker to help with Dev/Prod parity, but deploying and managing Docker images in production has been a pain. Convox helps by providing a simple Heroku-esque CLI to deploy and manage your application on AWS. We've been able to replace a bunch of terraform + chef/ansible scripts and use Docker in production without the headache.
