NOTE: You do not have to formally RSVP to come, but please let us know, so we have a ballpark headcount to communicate to the restaurant to ensure there is enough seating.

This month, Dan Isla will talk to us about Docker.

Docker is a hot trend in today’s tech community, making it easier than ever to containerize and deploy modern, and legacy software applications. While often mistaken for virtualization, containers take a new, lightweight approach to abstracting and isolating the runtime environment, dependencies and networking required by modern software.

This talk will cover how to get started with Docker, best practices for containers and example workflows for developing and deploying containers locally and in cloud environments. After this talk you should have the essential building blocks for building a containerized environment and application stack.


Dan is an IT Data Scientist in the Office of Chief Technology and Innovation at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory where he is using the latest software and open hardware technology to bring new ways of working with big data and computing infrastructure to space missions. In the past, Dan has worked for a handful of startups and has been an avid Linux user for many years.


Join us for dinner and presentations. Dinner begins at 7 pm and any presentations will start after most people have received their food or 8 pm, whichever comes first.

You are not required to have dinner with us or order food or stay for the entire meeting. We will have separate checks. Validation is not required for parking. Please take note of signs when parking.
