Heard about Docker and are wondering how to make it part of your stack? Excited by the potential of developing faster and smarter? We’re going to show you how to build development environments with Docker. Then teach you how to integrate that environment into your development and testing workflow.

  • We’ll show you how to easily install Docker on Linux, OS X and Windows and how to manage it.
  • You’ll learn how to build replicas of your production stack to develop in.
  • We’ll demonstrate some simple Docker-enabled workflows that include local development, Git Hub integration, and container-based testing.
  • You’ll get an introduction to taking the next step and leveling up your local workflow to a group or team-centric continuous integration environment with Jenkins.

You’ll leave the session with the basic tools to add Docker to your development lifecycle and information about how to learn more to build on your knowledge.


Basic command line skills.
