Hands-on Labs: Modernizing Windows Applications (and more) with Docker!
THIS IS A FREE EVENT - PLEASE RSVP USING THIS LINK HRNUG and Docker Hampton Roads meetups are joining forces for a night of hands-on workshops. Bring your laptop and let’s #LearnDocker. Our main focus will be a lab where you'll learn to Dockerize traditional .NET / Windows applications! We will also have a number of other labs available on a variety of Docker topics and for different skill levels, including for beginners. Moving an application to Docker doesn't mean you have to re-write your whole application. In this hands-on technical lab, you'll containerize an older, monolithic .NET application without changing any code. And you'll see the benefit of running it on Docker. Then in a few simple steps, you'll build additional services in separate containers, breaking features out of the monolith into separate containers, without rewriting the app. If you are an advanced Docker user who would like to help people work through the labs, reach out to Kevin, Drew or Bret! Food and drinks will be provided! Let everyone know you’re coming by using #LearnDocker.

    What we're about

    Learn, Collaborate & Dockerize! Meet other developers and ops engineers in your community that are using and learning about Docker. Docker is an open platform that helps you build, ship and run applications anytime and anywhere. Developers use Docker to modify code and to streamline application development, while operations gain support to quickly and flexibly respond to their changing needs. Docker ensures agility, portability and control for all your distributed apps.

    Docker is also the main sponsor of the Moby Project, an open framework to assemble specialized container systems without reinventing the wheel. More information available at
