Docker is an open platform to build, ship, and run any Linux application anywhere. AJ Bowen and Jérôme Petazzoni lead a hands-on tutorial that gives you an opportunity to dive in and see Docker in action. You’ll learn about Docker basic concepts and how to run containers, create your own images, interact with the Docker Hub, and stack multiple containers to compose complex applications.
This tutorial is relevant for both developers and sysadmins. If you’ve heard about Docker but haven’t used it (or used it very little), AJ and Jérôme will get you started in this fast-paced, hands-on introduction.
AJ Bowen is on a mission to containerize all the things and help others to do the same. In the past, AJ has done technical support, evangelism, and customer and developer advocacy at Gandi. Her other experience includes heavy involvement in the Occupy movement in Kansas City, where she discovered the delightful and complicated world of horizontal organization in groups of passionate people with wildly diverse political perspectives, and humanitarian work in Haiti. AJ doesn’t like being told what to do—or telling others what to do—and is on a constant mission to eliminate unnecessary hierarchy.
Jérôme Petazzoni is a DevOps advocate and international speaker. He was born and raised in France, where he worked on geographic information systems, voice-over-IP, video streaming and encoding, and started a cloud hosting company back when EC2 wasn’t an Amazon product yet. He moved to California to build and scale the dotCloud PAAS, which eventually gave birth to Docker. He worked at Docker for seven years, during which he represented the famous container company at hundreds of conferences and events and trained thousands of engineers to use Docker, Swarm, and Kubernetes. He’s fluent in many languages (mostly programming ones), owns a dozen of musical instruments, and can play the theme of Zelda on most of them.
