Community Spotlight: Johannes Würbach

Johannes has been an active member of the Deis community for some time now. He has made contributions around gzip compression, user registration, router network configuration as well as adding Deis support to Travis CI.

Johannes is CTO at SixDoors, a platform to discover and buy products from the best independent retailers. As a growing e-commerce company, Johannes is interested in simplifying day-to-day ops work. While SixDoors started out with Rails on Heroku, they later moved to OpsWorks before switching to Deis.

"Deis was easier to setup, supported running multiple process types out-of-the-box and allowed us to configure our apps via the command-line", says Johannes. "Deis also simplified our infrastructure as we are now fully running on AWS with the ability to run different app types in the same cluster."

From the Deis team, a sincere thank you to Johannes for his ongoing contributions to the Deis community.

Deis at DockerCon

The Deis team had a great time at DockerCon! A big thanks to Docker, Inc. and all of the sponsors for putting on such an amazing first conference.

It was an honor to speak about Deis - Evolution of a Docker PAAS. Thank you to all those that attended. In case you missed it, here are the slides (video to come).

The reception to my talk was more than I could have hoped. I'm sorry I didn't have more time to chat with each of you. Feel free to email me directly.

Earlier this month, I was contacted by Docker's Registry maintainers that they were breaking out the backend storage drivers for the dotcloud/docker-registry project on GitHub. They were asking for volunteers to help maintain the individual storage drivers. Since I was the original contributor who added the Swift backend to the registry, I was more than happy to take it by the horns and start maintaining it. You can find the project on GitHub.
