CoreOS: An Introduction Building Large Reliable Systems

The architectural patterns of a large scale platform are changing. Dedicated VMs and configuration management tools are being replaced by containerization and new service management technologies like systemd. This presentation will be giving an overview of their key technologies, including etcd, schedulers (mesos, k8s, etc), and containers (nspawn, docker, rocket). Come and learn how to use these new technologies to build performant, reliable, large distributed systems.
