Abstract: What is docker (https://www.docker.io), and how can it help me?
Linux containers are self-sufficient ways to deploy isolated applications for testing, developing, or running applications at scale. Come for a workshop on how to leverage this technology for more robust continuous integration, and developing/deploying across a diverse landscape of distributions.
We'll go over the fundamentals: * Building a image for your application (if you're not a developer, that is ok :-) * Wiring up that image for your use case * Shipping that image (or even publishing it for others)
Feel free to bring your questions on docker-based solutions!
