Launched in March 2013, Docker succeeded to win favor with its technology and awesome branding. Docker is an open platform for building, shipping and running distributed applications. It gives programmers, development teams and operations engineers the common toolbox they need to take advantage of the distributed and networked nature of modern applications.
Steve Newsted, our guest speaker, will give a comprehensive talk about Docker and containers. We can't wait for this one!
