The role of the tutorials is to provide a platform for a more intensive scientific exchange amongst researchers interested in a particular topic and as a meeting point for the community. Tutorials complement the depth-oriented technical sessions by providing participants with broad overviews of emerging fields. A tutorial can be scheduled for 1.5 or 3 hours.


Tutorial on
Microservices in Numbers: Diagnostic Docker Deep Dive


Josef Spillner
Zurich University of Applied Sciences
Brief Bio
Josef Spillner is head of the Service Prototyping Lab and senior lecturer (associate professor) at Zurich University of Applied Sciences in Switzerland. With his team, he advances computing paradigms around the topics of cloud-native and post-cloud applications, serverless computing, messaging and microbilling. Moreover, he explores novel ways to publish practically useful research output. Earlier in his career, he published a doctoral dissertation about metaquality of services and a habilitation treatise about stealth computing in multi-cloud environments.

Cloud applications are typically designed as coupled microservices and deployed in managed containerised form. Industry trends around container build processes, deployment packages, management platforms and abstractions (e.g. cloud functions) are still fast-paced. Developers and operators need to be able to tell good from bad practices based on automatically determined metrics. Assuming they participate in this tutorial, they will learn how to do that on a hands-on level. We introduce approaches and open source tools for quantitative assessment of containers and other microservice technologies and ecosystems. On the research side, we explain how this blends with policy-driven deployments, trusted cloud execution and data science opportunities.
