NorDev: Docker Beginners Hands on Full Day Workshop
Where: The King's Centre, King Street, Norwich, NR1 1PH
Prerequisites: Laptop with SSH client
Location: Conference Room 1 (1st floor)
In this hands on workshop we’ll be looking at the basics of using Docker to deploy services in immutable servers.
Starting from the absolute basics of installing and running docker we’ll then look at running pre-packaged images before moving onto creating our own. We’ll then use these images to see how Docker can be used to simplify testing and deployment of code.
During the session we’ll be working with the linux command line, so a familiarity with that will be beneficial. The practical sessions will be run from the cloud, so a laptop with an SSH client will be needed.
