Talk delivers best practices for how Web developers can test code quickly, minimize bugs using Docker
Flux7, a systems integrator focused on delivering cloud, big data and high performance computing solutions, today announced that Chief Executive Officer Aater Suleman will be speaking at #DevOpsDays Austin 2014. Mr. Suleman’s presentation entitled “Using Docker to Improve Web Developer Productivity” begins at 11:15AM, May 5, 2014, at The Marchesa Hall and Theatre in Austin, Texas.

Mr. Suleman’s presentation will focus on best practices for using #Docker, an open-source project to easily create lightweight, portable, self-sufficient containers from any application, to help increase web developer productivity and operations. The talk will include real-world examples of how Flux7 is using #Docker to achieve low overhead virtualization, to be a key aspect of a #DevOps architecture, to optimize developer flows, and to mimic multi-tier production environments on a single machine.
“Front-end web developers should see a great opportunity in using Docker to design and test, and in seeing the effect of their design changes on populated data from back-end processes in real-time. It’s time to say goodbye to the guess work of designing in the absence of real data,” said Mr. Suleman, who has a PhD in computer engineering from the University of Texas-Austin, where he now teaches computer systems design and architecture. “Back-end web developers also benefit from Docker by being able to mimic the production environment on their local machine with great gains in performance and testing efficiency. DevOpsDays is a prime event for defining the new norm for software development.”
Flux7 has implemented a number of projects using #Docker to create developer flows and has produced a set of best practices and reference architectures that address the needs of developers new to #Docker containers.
“Developers are very interested in the potential of Docker to aid in identifying and fixing bugs that occur due to environment mismatches, but often are reticent to commit to a new environment,” Mr. Suleman continued. “My talk will share these best practices and show a reference architecture that takes advantage of Docker’s strengths.”
