Working with Databases in Containers

Online event

We know how to use containers for deploying code, but how can we implement and stand up databases to work with containers? Asha Kalburgi will be giving us a demo! This meetup assumes that you are somewhat familiar with docker and you know basic operational stuff. I will try and do a brief introduction to docker as well. But here is a quick introduction and why it is so popular https://www.infoworld.com/article/3204171/what-is-docker-the-spark-for-the-container-revolution.html I will send out the zoom details closer to the event date. If you want to try and follow along the demo or try on your own later , you need to have installed Docker on your PC. The instructions for most popular OSs can be found here: Ubuntu, Windows, Mac. https://docs.docker.com/install/linux/docker-ce/ubuntu/ https://docs.docker.com/docker-for-windows/install/ https://docs.docker.com/docker-for-mac/install/
