ChaDev: From Cargo Ships to Shipping Docker Containers

The 1950s saw standardized containers revolutionize the shipping industry. In this talk Rob will discuss how Docker, a leading container technology, is enabling a similar kind of transformation in cloud infrastructure.

Docker provides an incredibly powerful way to package and deploy your applications. We’ll start with a brief background on what Docker is, how it works, and why you’d want to use it. From there we’ll go over some common mistakes people make when building Docker images, and learn how they can be avoided. Once we have a great image, we’ll cover how we can run it in a secure way. Even if you haven’t used Docker before, you should leave this talk with a good understanding of how to build great images and run them securely.
