Workshop by Paul McGrath: "Docker for the complete beginner"

Bring a laptop or pair up with someone friendly.
Please run these very important instructions before attending:

1. Install docker:
Windows 10:
Older windows - Docker toolbox:

2. Clone or download the repository:
(on windows do not clone this to your home folder, clone it to somewhere near the root of the c: drive instead)

3. Open bash (mac) or powershell (windows) and run the pre-workshop script in the root of the repo.

Please ensure that the command at the end of this script writes out "Ready to learn docker"


Please join us for this great workshop (presented at the DDD East Anglia)

Speaker: Paul McGrath | Software engineer (C++, VB, FORTRAN) currently working on freelance projects and helping run the Cambridge Programmers' Study Group.

Workshop: "Docker for the complete beginner"

If you've heard of docker at conferences and want to know what all the hype is about, this is for you. He will also show how docker can help in your development process even if your company doesn't use docker at all.

The workshop will be followed by some pizzas and drinks!

See you all on Wednesday!
