Mario Pareja's talk from Fall 2014 Node.js Meetup
Mario talked about how 360 leveraged Docker to distribute their production application coupled with a customized metrics dashboard app. Mario will explain the importance of the dashboard view at development time and how simple it was for 360 to run a production-like world on a laptop by leveraging Docker. Mario's goal is for everyone to leave the talk with practical examples and the confidence to leverage Docker to create and tear-down their own production-like worlds.
Capturing log entries and metrics is dead simple. It’s knowing what to capture that is difficult and we really don’t know if the data we’re capturing is going to be helpful until we visualize it. We get it wrong all the time, of course, but that’s the point here; what makes sense when you’re typing away in your editor often makes zero sense at the user level. Would you ship a new UI without ever looking at it?
I want everyone to re-think how we look at this - make that production insight a first-class citizen right from the get go, day one of starting to write the code.
