Adrien Blind – Speaker Interview

Q. You’re speaking at Voxxed Days Bucharest in March. Tell us a bit about your session

I think Docker is a best fit to achieve Continuous Delivery: far beyond being an app isolation technology, it also represents a new universal type of app artifact; it also have organizational impacts. It suits perfectly the “You build it, you run it” statement from Werner Voegls. My session attempts to exposes this holistic view of Docker, based on my experimentation at Societe Generale.

Q. Why is the subject matter important?

Continuous delivery is not only something cool, satisfying tech people: it really helps the IT department delivering more rapidly and secuerly value to its customers, bringing them a competitive advantage to run their business. Moreover, all the subsequent automation it implies contributes to lowering deployment and run costs of applications.

Q. Who should attend your session?

Everybody! This presentation is built to propose different layers of outcomes, helping beginners to get the global picture, while providing more advanced tricks for veterans.

Q. What are the key things attendees will take away from your session?

With this session, you’ll understand continuous delivery pipeline principles, and be able to start building your own delivering Docker artifacts (here illustrated with the Jenkins ecosystem).

Q. Aside from speaking at Voxxed Days Bucharest, what else are you excited about for 2016?

Regarding the technical landscape, I’m quite excited by the announcements regarding Unikernels, growing interest of people for ARM micro platforms, or even the DWave’s quantum computer: does this slowly prefigures future the end of traditional systems? I’m also quite interested by VIV technology, which may revolutionize some human-internet interactions in the upcoming years.
