Presented by: Matthew Leventi, Engineer at Lyft
Learn how Docker enables Lyft to increase developer productivity across our engineering organization. We'll go through a local development model that decreases our developer onboard time, and keeps our teams focused on delivering product goals. We'll also talk about how we use Docker to test changes to our servers and allow QA testing of our mobile clients. You'll come out of the talk with techniques and reasons for integrating docker not just in the cloud but also onto developer's laptops.
Docker is an open-source engine that automates the deployment of any application as a lightweight, portable, self-sufficient container that will run virtually anywhere.
Docker containers can encapsulate any payload, and will run consistently on and between virtually any server. The same container that a developer builds and tests on a laptop will run at scale, in production*, on VMs, bare-metal servers, OpenStack clusters, public instances, or combinations of the above.
