As I mentioned previously, I was going to be on the west coast for a few weeks and was invited to speak for the Portland Java User Group (PJUG).

The eventing was hosted by a recruitment company with pizza and drinks for all. We had 29 registered for the event an about 20 in the room when I kicked of the talk.

There was a lot of active discussions at the end and several attendees approached afterward about getting started on their own laptops with the workshop that was showcased.

Here is the abstract again and the slides:




Abstract: 10 Steps to Cloud Happiness

A modern developers world is full of new tools, new technologies and getting started can become a bit daunting. Let's take a tour of how to get started with containers, Cloud and some examples so that you have your very own private PaaS Cloud on your laptop. You'll be given a private Cloud in minutes that turns your laptop into a container platform where you then can explore a multitude of example projects from such domains as retail, travel, finance and more. Hold on to your developer hats as we get you started on application development in the Cloud with open technologies, Ansible deployment automation and container-based fun. Everything you're shown in this session is available for attendees to explore online and hands-on once they've returned home.
