Docker is an open-source project to easily create lightweight, portable, 
self-sufficient containers from any application. The same container that 
a developer builds and tests on a laptop can run at scale, in 
production, on VMs, bare metal, OpenStack clusters, public clouds and more.

This talk will take you on a journey from an old, badly understood, 
insecure and hard to maintain infrastructure to a new, shiny well known, 
well tested, automated and secure replacement - a transition made using 
lxc containers and docker.io

Starting with a gentle introduction to docker and lxc, it'll move on to 
discussing how to use them to take control of and audit an organically 
grown environment. Topics covered will include: how to design a 
container based architecture, how (or if) to run configuration 
management software inside containers, how to arrange immutable 
containers for services with persistent mutable data (e.g. postfix, 
mysql) and how to effectively share puppet code between old (metal) and 
new (containerized) environments.

Tomas (@bobtfish) works on infrastructure automation at large scale for 
Yelp. He’s speaks regularly at devops events and other technical 
conferences on a number of topics between testing, development, 
architecture, automation and systems administration. Tom came to the 
dark side of systems & devops after being a professional Perl developer 
for many years. He’s an avid open source contributor and lives in London 
with his fiancé and far too many cats.
