Event Details

Docker is a valuable tool for software teams of all sizes; it's been gaining momentum with everyone from open source developers to publicly traded corporations. Docker adds a layer of abstraction between software and the operating system, making it easy for people to build and deploy software on nearly any operating system. Because of this ease-of-use, Docker orchestrators, such as Kubernetes, have been built allowing for horizontal scaling of internet-scale applications using Docker Containers. This talk will go over the value of Docker and why you want to use it in the software industry.

Speaker Bio

Ryan Smith, UCI graduating class 2014, is currently a Senior DevOps Engineer at Veritone Inc in Costa Mesa. He loves cheeseburgers and developing in the open source community. His preferred programming language is Golang, works extensively with Docker, and deploys everything to AWS. In his spare time, he's developing a Serverless framework using Terraform.

Co-sponsors
This event is co-sponsored by the IEEE Orange County Computer Society.

Parking Instructions for programs at the Knobbe Martens Conference Center

The Knobbe Martens Conference Center is located at:
2040 Main Street, 2nd Floor, Irvine, CA 92614

When you arrive, you'll be issued a parking ticket at a kiosk. Look for the signs for "2040" and park in the designated parking structure or one nearby.

You must bring your parking ticket with you to the meeting. On the way into the 2040 building, inform the first floor ambassador (security guard) that you would like parking validation and are attending the OC ACM Chapter Meeting.

All validations are given via an electronic encoder machine – the card you pulled upon entry to the parking structure will be electronically noted with the appropriate validation.

To exit the parking structure, you can turn right or left out of the garage to drive up to the exits.
-If you go right, there will be two lanes – both accept validation.
-If you go left, there will be three exit lanes – the left and middle accept validation. (The right hand lane is for monthly user only and cannot accept validation.) A good rule-of-thumb is to stay in the left lanes.

Once you pull up to the machine, there are two slots capable of accepting either validations or credit cards, be sure to read directions for inserting validations.

History

Don V Black, PhD, realized in late 2013 that Orange County (OC) was ready for an ACM Chapter, and he decided to found such a Chapter.

Since five current ACM members in good standing were needed to sign a petition to start a Chapter, in September of 2014, he sent an email to his associates to sign the petition. Jeremy Harrington, Jenny Wang, Nilo Niccolai, Lynn Langit, Rebecca Perry, Daniel Whelan, Ken Bell, Keviin Fowler, Brian McCaleb, Dave Close, Lance Elliot, and Roger Whitney responded.

The following members attended the first lunch meetings held at the old University Club at UCI, and volunteered to serve as the first ACM officers in 2014.

  • Founding Chair: Don V Black, PhD
  • Vice Chair: Lance Elliot. PhD
  • Treasurer: Kevin Fowler
  • Secretary: Rebecca Perry, PhD
  • Communications: Jake Liang, PhD
  • Member-At-Large: Arthur Schwarz
  • University Liaison: Nilo Niccolai, PhD
  • Membership: Daniel Whelan, PhD
  • Programs: Dan Davis
  • Webmaster: Ken Bell
  • Mission Statement: Nilo Niccolai, PhD

A business manager at The UCI Institute for Innovation offered Don Black the use of the facility, which was yet to be built. Don took up the offer, and negotiated a free use of the facility for the GameSIG Showcase and ACM of OC. Don Black and others thought that since the demographics of both organizations included UCI students, they met the I4I criteria for free community support, and would increase visibility for the new UCI Institute for Innovation (I4I). They held on awesome GameSIG Showcase, and proceeded to promote ACM-OC bi-monthly presentations at the UCI I4I.

ACM-OC bi-monthly talks were extremely well received by the membership. At the suggestion of the Membership Chair, Daniel Whelan, Don Black followed the example of the San Francisco ACM Chapter, and added ACM-OC as one of his MeetUp groups.

Further details of this can be found at the ACM-OC archived website.
