Now virtual

On 26 November 2020 Containers Today is back as a virtual event. We will bring you the latest on containers and related topics through our high-tech virtual platform. Pre-registration is open now!

Experience the exciting world of containers

While digitization is more important than ever before and many professionals work with an innovative portfolio to realize this progress - think of clouds, data centers and application architectures - progress is being countered at the same time by existing applications and related infrastructure (legacy). The solution? With container technology, you can run applications without depending on the underlying servers and software versions, both on-premise and in the cloud, managed and secured from a single platform.

Do you want to know what containerization can mean for your organization?
On 26 November 2020, we will talk about containerization in one day: how does your organization benefit from container technology? What is the difference between containerization and virtualization? How do you save costs? How do you manage a hybrid infrastructure and containers in the cloud? To answer all questions as well as possible, we divide the day into two different tracks: Architecture/Infra Track and Developer/ Ops Track.

For whom
On this day we expect over 300 Dev / DevOps, ITDMs, Architects, Project Managers, CTOs & CIOs to login to the virtual event.

Costs
Containers Today Nordics  is free to attend for everyone. So feel free to register yourself below and we hope to see you on 26 November 2020.

Tracks

Architecture, Infrastructure & Operations
In this track we dig deeper into the architectural side of container technology and modern application development. How do I build up a container platform, which architectural design decisions do I need to make and how do modern development methods change roles and responsibilities within my organization? We have selected practice-oriented cases for you. They will not only showcase their successes but definitely also let you in on the don'ts and lessons learned !
Developer
Container technology was quickly embraced by developers. Because what could be better than isolating applications from the underlying infrastructure so that they can not only be moved reliably from one environment to another, but also provide a flexible way of testing? In the developers track we provide live demos. In each session we take a step deeper into the technique. After a number of sessions you can call yourself a pro in the area of containers.

Running Kubernetes Everywhere with K3s

Kubernetes has become the defacto standard for running containers in the cloud, but it comes with a significant learning curve and operational overhead. K3s, was a controversial experiment by Darren Shepherd to strip out 8 million lines of code. Since the original project hit the front page of Hacker News, the project has gained thousands of GitHub stars, sold-out talks at KubeCon and inspired a new generation of tools. The K3s project can run on devices with only 500MB of RAM meaning it’s perfect for the edge or for keeping cloud costs low.

Learn what K3s is all about, how it differs from the upstream Kubernetes project and how you can deploy it in a resilient way at the edge on commodity hardware like the Raspberry Pi.

Adaptive Applications - the key to delivering great customer experiences

Today, everyone is in the digital experience business. Customers and users expect a lot from the organizations they interact with. Personalized experiences. Secure transactions. Apps that are speedy, reliable, and always on. If you deliver on those promises, odds are your customers are going to be happy—and they’re going to tell their family and friends about it.

But it can be challenging to deliver on those expectations. How can you shape your digital environment to live up to those expectations? Asa Persson explains, by amongst others discussing how you can build in security from the start of app development, and showing some use cases on API Gateway Security, how to support applications so that they're always fast, available secure and optimized for your customers. Because applications are the front door to customer relationships… and every customer relationship matters.

Asa Persson F5

She has good insight regarding the challenges around the entire application lifecycle management, from a user, to where the applications actually is, whether in a Datacenter, Hybrid or Cloud environment.

She will share valuable information about the challenges and solutions that we see with different customers digital journeys from a Monolithic to The next generation applications such as Microservices and Containers. Åsa's spare time is spent (preferably spent in the nature) with her five children and as an instructor at the Nordic Gym chain SATS.

Kubernetes everywhere!

In this session, I will show you how to deploy, import, manage and scale Kubernetes clusters on premise, in the cloud and in resource constrained environments on the Edge.

You’ll see how simple it is to deploy your Kubernetes clusters in any environment and manage them all, through one central pane of glass, whilst also centralizing RBAC, Security, Monitoring, Logging and everything else needed to run an Enterprise grade Kubernetes Management solution.

This is where he got to continue helping clients with migrating their legacy applications to containers and soon after also to Kubernetes as the container orchestration platform. Linkedin logo icon

 

Securing Your Containers in the Face of Changing Attack Surfaces

Companies are rapidly adopting container technologies to accelerate application development, modernization and transformation to the cloud. This also introduces new attack surfaces that traditional security approaches do not address. What should we keep in mind and how do we move security to the “left” side with as little impact on the DevOps processes as possible.

Developer track


5 steps to Kubernetes observability

During this live demo we will show you how to get observability into your Kubernetes environment with the help of New Relic. You’ll learn how to set up and use the New Relic Kubernetes cluster explorer as well as best practices for monitoring containers, clusters and the applications that run in them.

Engineer Better

Adopting disruptive, transformative technology is like paying for a gym membership - it doesn't matter how much you pay, you won't see the benefits unless you change your behaviour. Ensure you get the full benefit of cloud native technology by understanding the process changes required to fully exploit it.

In this talk Daniel will discuss the psychology and neuroscience of continuously delivering on a platform, explaining how automation allows for greater sociability and empathy in teams, and how this is demonstrated to increase productivity. We’ll look at the present bias, its unavoidable nature, and how an automated path to production allows us to exploit the present bias to our benefit. Finally we’ll look at intrinsic motivation and how the continuous delivery enabled by cloud native technology increases the frequency of reward, reducing the amount of technical debt a team incurs.

Data Fabric for Kubernetes

Your applications might be new and easy to deploy to any cloud using containers and Kubernetes, but your data most likely is not. Your end users and customers will pop up as data in every corner of your infrastructure, from the shiniest of private clouds to the murkiest corners of your bare metal unix servers. What you need is a Data Fabric that spans across all platforms in your application landscape, from on premises to any cloud, helping you move your data to where your applications need to be, rather than forcing your applications to sit close to your data. And if you could manage all aspects of that Data Fabric from Kubernetes, now wouldn’t that be something?

In this session I will talk about how you can integrate your data fabric with Kubernetes and how that integration can protect your data and speed up you CI/CD pipeline.

Fredrik Nygren - NetApp

Fredrik Nygren

Is SE Manager Sweden for NetApp, has dedicated his career designing and implementing solutions that store, protect, optimize and leverage information to drive successful business. As a Solutions Engineering Manager for NetApp in Sweden, he leads a team of engineers who are passionate about the untapped value in technology and information.

Standardize the way you deploy and update applications across cloud and edge

Today's deployment landscape spans multiple clouds, data centers, and edge locations. Deploying and updating containerized applications across all of these locations is a challenging task. Often requiring special knowledge about the infrastructure or modifications of the containers. Join us and explore ways of standardizing deployments and updates in an integrated and automated way.
