Mesos 101: Getting Started With Mesos - Ken Sipe, Mesosphere
If you are completely new to Mesos, this session is for you. This demonstration filled session will teach you everything you need to know about getting started with Mesos, including a high-level overview of how Mesos works, instructions for configuring and standing up a Mesos cluster, and best practices for running and scaling applications.   By the end of this session, you will:
  • Have a basic understanding of Mesos fundamentals
  • Know how to stand up a Mesos cluster
  • Be able to launch applications on your Mesos cluster
  • Scale and operate your Mesos cluster
This session is targeted at all levels of IT, devops, and operations teams who are interested in learning how to stand up and operate a Mesos cluster. 

This will help people gain practical, introductory knowledge of deploying and operating an Apache Mesos cluster as well as launching and managing applications on that cluster. It will help ops practitioners and developers of any experience level learn a new skill.

Mesos: An SDK for Distributed Systems Developers - Connor Doyle and Adam Bordelon, Mesosphere
In this tutorial, the experts from Mesosphere will explain the core concepts behind writing frameworks for Apache Mesos, including a detailed description of the low-level tools at your disposal as a framework author. Attendees are encouraged to follow along on their own computers as we demonstrate how to write elastic services using several popular programming languages (without a single line of networking code). Participants will leave with the skills to build the future of distributed systems!

  • Introduction to Apache Mesos
  • When to write a Framework
  • Environment Setup
  • Hands-On Implementation
  • Q & A
Apache Mesos is a cluster manager that provides efficient resource isolation and sharing across distributed applications. It can run Apache Hadoop, Apache Spark, MPI, Hypertable, Storm, Chronos, Marathon, and other applications on a dynamically shared pool of nodes. The biggest user of Mesos is Twitter, where it runs on tens of thousands of cores. Airbnb runs all of their data infrastructure on it, processing petabytes of data.

  • No prior knowledge of Apache Mesos or distributed systems is required.
  • Familiarity with at least one of the target languages (Python, Scala, or Go) will be helpful.
  • All attendees should bring a laptop with Vagrant and VirtualBox pre-installed.
