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 session 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.

Who are you?

This was marked as entry-level, so I was expecting it to go more slowly with less content. I think the slides will provide a great reference when I try out these concepts on my own.

A good presentation. I attended a similar one last year and felt like I was closer after this presentation to being able to use it. But I still don't know how to install docker or any of the basics. The process itself was presented well with a good delivery style.

Docker-compose.yml feels less intimidating after attending your session, also the Boiler project looks very helpful.

I picked up Puppet three years ago and Docker looks like a good evolution on the concepts. Since I haven't tried it yet, some of the information went over me, but it was good to see what's possible.
