Date: Tuesday, January 20th
Time: 7:30pm
Location: UVU Business Resource Center

Brayden Winterton will present about Docker, an open platform for developers and sysadmins to build, ship, and run distributed applications. Over the past year, Docker has taken over the DevOps world by storm. Why has Docker been so quickly adopted and why is it useful? Docker helps to remove the friction between Development, Testing, Operations, and the many environments associated with these tasks. Docker allows applications to be packaged and shipped to any environment without needing to worry about dependencies, operating systems, versions, etc. 

First we will take a look at what Docker does on a fundamental level, then we will discuss basic usage of an existing Docker container. We will also talk about the building of Docker containers and the usage of Dockerfiles, as well as the layered filesystems that make up these containers.  There will be a demonstration of creating a new Docker container, and then we will discuss using multiple Docker containers to run an application. Finally, we will discuss possible use cases for Docker as well as some basic orchestration tools such as Fig.

Just go in the front doors, and follow the signs. We're usually in a conference in the back of the main floor. There will be pizza provided by TekSystems.
