See You at #Gluecon!_Screen-Shot-2014-05-20-at-11.50.38-AM-300x140

This week ElasticBox will be among hundreds of developers at Gluecon in Broomfield, Colorado.

We are excited to be sponsoring this conference and are looking forward to meeting everyone! Stop by and say hi – we will be in the atrium on the lobby level.

Check out our breakout session at 1:50pm on Thursday, May 22nd during which Ramiro Berrelleza will demonstrate how ElasticBox deploys ElasticBox using ElasticBox. Not sure what that means?

Ramiro will be talking about the Continuous Deployment scenario we use for internal development purposes and how ElasticBox is used to encapsulate our Jenkins / Puppet based Continuous Deployment scenario so that it can be deployed as an instance at the click of a button.

Ramiro will also demonstrate how ElasticBox enables CI/CD, fast, repeatable deployments and the reusability of application infrastructure components to accelerate delivery of applications or features to market.

Can’t wait until the conference? Take a look at his slides. For a sneak peak of our product, click here. Want to get a feel for ElasticBox? Sign up for our free edition.

Docker Meetup at ElasticBox

We’re pleased to announce that ElasticBox is hosting a Docker Meetup on Wednesday, March 5th at 6:00pm. For those who aren’t familiar with Docker, it is an open source project where application components can be isolated as portable, lightweight containers ready to run on virtually any environment.

Docker is one of the many deployment and configuration management tools that can be used in ElasticBox. On March 5th you’ll get an overview of ElasticBox and Docker, as well as get a chance to see how Docker can be used in ElasticBox to deploy applications right away.

If you’re a developer that deploys and manages cloud applications small and large, come learn more about two awesome new products that can revolutionize your workflow.

What to Expect

On March 5th, we’ll show you how to get up and running with Docker and ElasticBox in just minutes. The schedule will be as follows:

6:00 to 6:30: Social / food & drinks

6:30 to 7:00: Introduction to Docker

7:00 to 7:30 What’s new in the last release + Docker Demo

7:30 to 8:00: Advanced Q&A and lightning talks*

*Lightning talks

- How Shippable is leveraging docker for its CI service

We’ll start with a brief overview of ElasticBox and demo some awesome new features. We’ll also highlight two examples of how you can use ElasticBox and Docker to deploy applications right away.

First we’ll be showing you how we use Docker, Apache and Github to deploy and serve a static web page on AWS. Then we’ll demonstrate how you can deploy and manage a complex multi-tiered application. Those of you who are experienced with managing complex n-tier applications will find this portion of the Meetup extremely exciting.

See You There

Initially we opened the Meetup to only 75 attendees. But due to incredible demand, we have decided to double the capacity to 150 awesome developers!
