I recently attended LinuxCon Europe 2015 from 5-7 October, 2015 in Dublin, Ireland. I came with high expectations and goals and I am pleased to be able to say they were met.
The conference was combined with two other conferences (CloudOpen and Embedded Linux Conference Europe) and I expected it to be a painful to navigate a huge venue, where I wouldn’t be able to find anyone. Instead, at about 1500-2000 people, the combined conference was very addressable, allowed for easy crossing of tracks, and presented a fantastic "hallway track." The organizers, sponsors, and venue did a fantastic job.
Rather than recap every talk I attended, I’ll talk about the event from the perspective of a software engineer working with container-related technologies. In my $dayjob I focus on Project Atomic, a collection of container-related technologies that make containers easier to implement and deploy. While the project focuses on Docker containers and tends to use the Kubernetes orchestrator, Atomic is really container-technology agnostic.
