Introduction to Docker

Paul Nasrat


Introduction to Docker

Note: WE ARE MEETING AT BLOOMBERG!! We'll need names, and you will need IDs. RSVP will open June 26, 2014, Thursday 4:30pm.

Docker is an open source container service. It makes it easy to create lightweight, portable, and self-sufficient containers. Learn why Docker matters, how to get started with it and see some examples of Docker in action.


Join us afterwards at Bloom's Tavern where we'll continue the discussion over drinks and/or food. Bloom's Tavern is located at 208 E 58th St, between 2nd at 3rd. Our reservation is for 8:45pm.

    Great meetup, looking forward to the slides/video being posted. I work at Tutum, a native cloud for Docker containers. We were the ones that raised our hands for using Docker in production :)

    If anyone would like double the free credit when signing up at, email me at [masked] with your email address. Thanks again for the presentation NYLUG!

    Jerome Petazzo really has some must reads on his blog regarding Docker. For understanding the device-mapper backend and how to manipulate:

    For understanding how to manage containers without embedding the kitchen sink:

    Interesting. The questions needed to be phrased better.

  • Pete D.

    Unfortunately, I have to bail. Will the presentation be filmed?

    July 9, 2014

    • Robert M.

      Yes. All our presentations are recorded and posted to our YouTube channel for those who can't be there in person.

      Curious when it will be available on YouTube ? Gave up my seat earlier today because I had to work late and couldn't get into NYC from South NJ on train in time but definitely appreciate the opportunity to learn more on this timely topic. Thanks !

  • Joshua Q. B.

    I'm going to have to cancel. My apologies.

    July 10, 2014

    Have to be at AWS Activate tonight. Have fun!

  • Amirah C.

    Unfortunately I also won't be able to make it tonight. Someone else can RSVP in my place.

    July 10, 2014

  • Jon S.

    Should we plan to get badges at 18:30 or should we arrive earlier than 18:30 to allow that process to happen. Any indication of what time?

    July 10, 2014

    • Jon S.

      Thanks for the info.

      July 10, 2014

    • Brian G.

      There are a large number of RSVPs, so I don't think everyone can get through in 15 mins, so if you want to be sure to catch the beginning of the talk come 10-15 mins early.

      July 10, 2014

  • eric

    Sorry, but I can't make it tonight, folks. Definitely something to put in the arsenal though.

    July 10, 2014

  • Prentice

    Since this talk will be recorded, and posted on YouTube, I decided not to trek into NYC tonight so I could give up my spot to someone else.

    July 10, 2014

  • Shawn W.

    I've just released my RSVP for someone else as I'll be attending the AWS Summit.

    July 9, 2014

  • Reg D.

    I will not make it and I've updated my status.

    July 9, 2014

  • Gna P.

    If you're not going can you please update your status so that those of us on the waitlist will be able to attend? Thank you.

    Hey everyone, just a reminder: security is tight at Bloomberg, so you'll want to get to this one a few minutes early. last time I was here for a Ceph meetup, it took about 20 minutes to get in the door and the event had already started.

  • ravi n.

    Containers? ?

    June 27, 2014

  • C.L. R.

    I will be in NYC for the month of July, any installfests going on?

    June 16, 2014

  • eric

    Room for only 13 people? Why is RSVP closed?

    May 28, 2014

    • Brian G.

      Please see the note in the talk description. (We open RSVP for non-organizers exactly two weeks before the event.)

      1 · May 28, 2014

    • Gregg C L.

      Be patient. We organizers have a lot of things to do during this week. It will open for the participants in several days.
