Level: Introductory to Intermediate
Virtualization is a really cool technology, but Containers are really the next chapter in application mobility and deployment standardization. Docker is the leader in this space and it's easy to use, easy to configure, and you can even have a bit of fun playing around with it. This technology can integrate with all types of platforms on both private and public cloud spaces and brings real value to the sysadmin just as it does for the developer.
We'll briefly cover what Containers are and logic behind them, and then get a bit more technical around how to implement and use Docker in many different scenarios. You'll learn about pulling images, adding applications, and pushing them back into our repositories. You'll also hear how to make your images available to the world on the Docker Hub. You'll even learn how to put Docker in the Microsoft Azure cloud using the Docker extensions.
Bring your laptop and follow along as we take a trip into App Containers and the world of Docker!
You will learn:
- How to install, configure, and use basic Docker commands from a local Operating System, and see how it is done in the Azure Cloud
- Why application containers are a really great and innovative technology solution for standardizing your application deployments and distributions
- How application containers would fit into a couple of different scenarios in small and large enterprises, and how they may relate to your own experiences
