Feeling overwhelmed while getting started with containers? Have you been tasked to figure out how to train everyone back at your organization? There's just so much to learn and teach! In this talk, we’ll start with a tiny bit of history to motivate the "why" and quickly move into the "what" by explaining what container and images actually are (they're not just magical black boxes!). We'll talk about how volumes help with data persistence and include an overview of Docker Compose and even orchestration. There will be plenty of live demos and fun!
