A Practical Introduction to Docker
Thursday 17th July 7:00pm at The Manchester Digital Laboratory (MadLab)
Docker has now reached v1.0+, and is consequently production-ready. In this talk, I’ll whiz through some of the key Docker concepts, why you might want to use it, and hopefully show some practical code examples of how to make use of it in a Ruby/Rails stack.
Alex Lynham works at Swirrl as a software engineer and was asked to Dockerize all the things in order to simplify their devops workflow, help with horizontal or vertical scaling and disaster management.
Swirrl is a small but growing Manchester-based company, creating beautiful and powerful data solutions for organisations who want to open up their data for both humans and machines
They are currently searching for more engineers to join their excellent team of friendly nerds: www.swirrl.com/jobs.
