Zalando Tech has gone through some enormous changes in the last year, with the transition of its online Fashion Store from a monolithic application, hosted in datacenters, to microservices, hosted on AWS. To deal with this change, the Zalando STUPS platform was created, allowing our autonomous teams to easily deploy their services via Docker containers.
We now have great expertise concerning the technologies involved with this shift. Zalando has become a pioneer for the use of these technologies, especially regarding Docker, and we see that there is a big interest in learning from our experiences in the region, we wanted to share our knowledge by creating a specialised Docker meetup group. We contacted Docker Inc. and they were straight-up excited about the idea: The Docker Meetup Group Dortmund has officially been founded.
We plan to have a meetup once per month in the group‘s initial stages to see if we can organise enough interesting talks. These talks will be from internal speakers at Zalando, as well as from external participants from the Ruhr area and beyond who want to share their experiences using Docker.
We’ll be broadcasting all meetup information via Zalando Tech’s official Twitter account, where you can also keep yourself updated on all other meetup details. We look forward to chatting all things Docker!
