Event Description

This month we will be joined by David McKay (@rawkode), who will be doing a talk on Docker!

"Docker, the hottest technology around at the moment. It swept the Ops world by storm in 2014, became mainstream in 2015, and now it’s set to dominate the developer world, in 2016.

Docker is a tool that allows you to package your application up into a single-runnable distributable binary - akin to the phar, but in Hulk mode. Docker allows you, a developer, to specify the exact environment your application needs to run, across development; test; staging; and production.

In this talk I will cover the creation of this utopian distributable and show you how to can compose your entire production infrastructure locally with only a small YAML file and without installing a single thing.

Lets say hello, to Docker."

After the talk we'll be opening things up to a group discussion; so feel free to bring along questions or suggestions to share so we can help each other out.


We've got a FREE License for ANY Jetbrains (@jetbrains) IDE to give away!

And if that wasn't enough to tempt you out there will be beers (or non-alchoholic alternatives), pizza and a bit of geek chat.
