You know Docker has something to do with running containers, and that's a good thing (you think, or at least you hear some people say). You might not even be sure what a container is exactly in the context of Docker---the logo is whale with shipping containers on top of it, not exactly a happy sight if we saw it in nature.

Where do you start if you want to understand what this technology is and how you can use it now? Well, if you know your way around a Linux command line to some simple measure, and you want to have a practical insight into what this technology is and how to use it, this talk is for you. We will explain the fundamentals of a Dockerfile; the fundamentals of a docker-compose file; and we will explore several approaches to managing and utilizing the containers produced by these packaging approaches.

We might even have some fun as we learn a few new things!

Thank you for putting this workshop together.

I learned about the motivations for using Docker as well as some of the commands for setting up containers and running things inside of them.

I appreciated the effort to get folks to set stuff up before the workshop, but it would have been nice to have a little less time involved with the setup in the workshop itself and more with working with Docker. That's really the only negative critique I have.

I feel like I can take the knowledge from this workshop and continue learning about Docker independently.

Frank has a down-to-earth delivery and was very interactive and engaging. The course was a good intro into the basic how and why of Docker. Plus, he has a cool last name (even if it is short a letter)! :)
