Friday August 22nd was Xebia’s first Innovation Day. We spent a full day experimenting with technology. I helped organizing the day for XITA, Xebia’s IT Architects department (Hmm. Department doesn’t feel quite right to describe what we are, but anyway). Innovation days are intended to inspire as well as educate. We split up in small teams and focused on a particular technology. Below is as list of project teams:

Installing Oracle on Docker
• Run a web application high-available across multiple CoreOS nodes using Kubernetes
• Application architecture (team 1)
• Application architecture (team 2)
Getting started with Salt
• Scale "infinitely" with Apache Mesos

In the coming weeks we will publish what we learned in separate blogs.
