Hi, is there any chance to address some more advanced topics? Such as:
- moving development/production to Docker (patterns and antipatterns, your experiences)
- Docker in cluster (pitfalls)
- linking Docker containers (in a cluster) – practical examples that worked well for you

Either way, I’m looking forward to attend your tutorial.

P.S. Sorry for this comment being so late
