The trend in web application deployment is toward automated deployment.
A central figure in this trend is Docker and containers.
But what is Docker and how does it relate to containers? What is a container?
This talk will give an introduction to what a container is and its benefits over traditional deployment technologies. At the end of the talk, the audience should understand basic Docker/container terminology and be able to deploy a simple CRUD app w/ ASP.NET Core on Digital Ocean.

Talk details from the speaker:
This presentation will cover the key topics of VMs, containers, images, containers and volumes.
We will begin with comparing and contrasting traditional Virtual machines and containers. I will demonstrate the difference in concept and performance between a virtual machine and a Docker container. Next, I'll introduce the concept
of images and how to create images using the Dockerfile. After that I'll demonstrate how to create a ASP.NET Core image and run a container based on that image. I'll also make sure to demonstrate version controlling images. Finally, I'll deploy the image on a $5 server on Digital Ocean.
