LUV July 2018 Workshop: Beginners guide to Docker

Infoxchange, 33 Elizabeth St. Richmond

Docker is the currently the "kewl" way to both manage development environments and deploy applications at extreme scale.
However it has new terminology, and a different architecture compared to using virtual machines (the technology Docker is most frequently compared with), so it can be confusing at first.

This talk is an entry level introduction to Docker. As well as explaining what containerisation is and why it's useful, this talk introduces key terminology and includes practical demonstrations showing the basics of using docker images, containers and docker-compose.

Some basic Linux knowledge is assumed, as well as knowing what a network port is.

Alec Clews has been using Linux since kernel release 0.99.13p17 (he thinks, it was a long time ago) and works at PaperCut software as the technical integration manager. He's a UNIX fascist and a beer snob but, apart from that, is pretty laid back.

There will also be the usual casual hands-on workshop, Linux installation, configuration and assistance and advice. Bring your laptop if you need help with a particular issue. This will now occur BEFORE the talks from 12:30 to 14:00. The talks will commence at 14:00 (2pm) so there is time for people to have lunch nearby.

The meeting will be held at Infoxchange, 33 Elizabeth St. Richmond 3121.  Late arrivals please call (0421) 775 358 for access to the venue.

LUV would like to acknowledge Infoxchange for the venue.

Linux Users of Victoria is a subcommittee of Linux Australia.
