An Intro to Docker
Thursday 16th July 6:30am at The Manchester Digital Laboratory (MadLab)
You may have heard of Docker: its a way to package, distribute and run software. It has seen rapid growth, and coupled with the micro-service architecture perhaps it will replace VMs as the king in the future of cloud computing.
This talk aims to introduce newcomers to Docker: what it is and where you might use it and how to get started. In the process we will build and run a Rails app in a container, which will be a good way to demonstrate the basics and give you a head start to play with Docker yourself.
Val (Valentin Arkhipov) is a freelance Ruby developer by night and a humble car mechanic by day, with over 13 years of living this double life he still has issues extracting sheared bolts and writing in 3rd person.
