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.

A Docker workshop with Elton Stoneman
Elton is a Pluralsight Author, Microsoft MVP and he works as an architect at Docker. He's been architecting and delivering successful solutions with Microsoft technologies since 2000, most recently Big Data and API implementations in Azure, and distributed applications with Docker and Kubernetes. Currently he's interested the evolution of the Microsoft stack, exploring the great opportunities to modernize existing .NET Framework apps with Docker, and run them alongside new .NET Core apps in Windows and Linux containers in Kubernetes. Elton is a regular presenter and workshop host at conferences. He's been fortunate to speak at DockerCon, NDC, DevSum, ProgNet, SDD, Container Camp and Future Decoded. You'll often see him at user groups too - Docker London, London DevOps and WinOps are his locals.
