Event Details

Docker is a valuable tool for software teams of all sizes; it's been gaining momentum with everyone from open source developers to publicly traded corporations. Docker adds a layer of abstraction between software and the operating system, making it easy for people to build and deploy software on nearly any operating system. Because of this ease-of-use, Docker orchestrators, such as Kubernetes, have been built allowing for horizontal scaling of internet-scale applications using Docker Containers. This talk will go over the value of Docker and why you want to use it in the software industry.
