An evening getting started with Docker.
Docker is one of those "disruptive" technologies which comes around and could potentially change how Linux is architected and used. Until now, there have been various implementations of Linux Containers, but each with various shortcomings.
Docker's current re-imagining and implementation of its own libcontainers solves numerous previous issues so now allows widespread and easy
• disposable configurations.
• deploying pre-built functions
• maximizing hardware utilization
• bare metal performance
• Near "instant on"
• experimentation without risking your existing OS
Bring your laptop. Most demos will be the type every person no matter what the skill level can participate. Topics will largely be practical, covering both beginning and advanced and some will be undocumentated.
1. Your choice of Linux installed (If you're running Windows, can be in a virtualized environment like Virtualbox, VMware, Hyper-V, KVM, Xen, etc)
2. Docker installed. The procedure will vary from one distro to another. Fedora, CentOS and Ubuntu (recent versions) will find it in their regular repositories. openSUSE requires adding the Virtualization repo. Email tonysu999 at gmail dot com if you need help.
3. Recommended (but not critical) to download your choice of OS which can be the same or different than your installed Linux with the following command docker pull <distroname> eg docker pull Ubuntu
See you all!
