Bridging the gap nicely between two Bank Holidays, this month’s meeting is on Monday 15th May, back in our normal time and place of 18:45 at the offices of The Student Room. We’re pleased to have David McKay coming all the way from Glasgow to tell us all about this Docker thing that everyone’s been talking about so much recently.
So come along, give him a warm welcome, enjoy the beer and pizza provided by our generous sponsors, and make the most of your Monday evening. Find out how to find the venue, let us know you’re coming on Facebook or on Lanyrd and give us your feedback on firstname.lastname@example.org.
David McKay – Say Hello to the Docker Family
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 2017.
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 introduce you to Docker and explain its fundamental concepts. For those of you on Windows or OSX, I’ll cover Docker Machine & Toolbox. We will then walk through creating containers, publishing and tagging images and getting started with the Docker Hub, all while covering some of the common pitfalls and awesome tips that I’ve learnt during my own Docker journey.
David McKay is a software and technology professional, born & bred in Glasgow, Scotland. As a serial user group organiser, organising Docker Glasgow, DevOps Glasgow and Pair Programming Glasgow, David is always searching for new and creative ways to share knowledge with others. Oh, and he quite likes domain-driven design, micro-services and clean code.
