Do you want to learn more about Dockerising apps in Linux? At this month's Linuxing in London we're joined by Elton Stoneman! Join in this hands-on workshop to learn all the core concepts and get practical experience with Docker.
Docker is a platform for packaging, distributing and running software applications.
We'll use a simple demo application - a Node.js web app with a SQL Server database. We'll walk through several iterations for Dockerizing the app, finishing with a set of production-grade Docker images. Along the way you'll learn the Dockerfile syntax and best practices, see how to package web applications and databases, and understand how Docker works on Linux and Windows.
This is a hands-on session, which will be provided in a lab environment.
Bring your laptops, but you don't need any software except a browser.
The workshop’s contents will all be on GitHub, and we will be using Play with Docker.
