Become a Docker fan (you too)!
Tired of installing billions of software on your laptop to complete your school project? Want to learn how Google packages its applications? Do you want to win so much that you will be tired of winning? Or you simply want to look like a big nerd during your next date? Search no more, we got your back!
With our incredible Docker tutorial, you will learn how to build containerized applications that run on every platform regardless of its environment. Docker has probably been one of the most disrupting technologies in the past years thanks to the many advantages it offers in terms of deployment, software manageability, resource usage and scalability. If you can watch hours of “Funny cats video” seamlessly and without any disruptions or delays, do not thank Youtube, do not thank the cats themselves, – thank technologies like Docker.
In this tutorial, you will get hands-on experience with Docker. At the end you should be able to:
- Create and manage containers
- Build your own containers
- Create multi-container applications
- Be able to deploy and play with new software in seconds without polluting your laptop
You will save a lot of time if you install Docker on your laptop before the workshop. The tutorial is made for OS X and Linux. Installation instructions: https://github.com/thelo-gaultier/docker-workshop-installation
If you are using a Windows PC, we will provide you with a virtual machine on AWS. Please indicate if you will need this in the registration process.
