Container-based Development with Docker

by Brian Kaney

This is a different kind of Docker talk. We will side-step deployment orchestration. We won't mention scheduling and service discovery. And we won't even talk (much) about docker repositories. Instead, it's all about developers! Building applications today using Docker has never been easier. We will look at why using Docker now in development makes sense. Then dive into using new tools, techniques, and workflow practices. We will also cover emerging community "container trends". Folks should leave this talk feeling ready to try container-based development.
