Elizabeth K. Joseph

Using a container orchestration platform like the Datacenter Operating System (DC/OS) or Kubernetes makes it trivial to setup an automated continuous deployment pipeline that pushes code to production on every commit (perhaps with some tests thrown in the middle). This is a win for customers (they see new features sooner), developers (much less bureaucracy with each release) and operators (fewer changes with each release means less risk).

In this presentation, Elizabeth will introduce DC/OS, an open source distributed operating system and container orchestrator based on the production proven Apache Mesos. She will then describe and demonstrate advanced deployment strategies including canary deployments and blue/green deployments, showing you how you can integrate these with continuous deployment pipelines on DC/OS to perform advanced automated deployments with low risk over thousands of machines. The presentation will conclude with a demonstration of a CI/CD pipeline running fully on open source software.


All applicants (including minors) must bring two means of positive identification. Licensed applicants must bring the original, and one photocopy, of their license. You should also bring the original and a copy of any Certificate of Successful Completion of Examination (CSCE) needed to prove current status. A fee of $15 will be charged for all tests.

Why should I get licensed?

Before you can get on the air, you need to be licensed and know the rules to operate legally. US licenses are good for 10 years before renewal and anyone may hold one except a representative of a foreign government. In the US there are three license classes—Technician, General and Extra.
