Great info. The demonstration was really valuable.

Insightful talk. Though I don't feel like an expert on containers I think I now have a good sense for how I might use them in my work and I can at least make a call as to whether or not I want to pursue the topic further.

While discussing Docker with Robert McFrazier after his presentation, I admitted that I felt like I was living "under a rock" for too long. But I'll fully admit that as a competent UNIX/LINUX sysadmin / developer, I'm accustomed to utilizing self written scripts to roll out test and dev environments and code, jailed and/or chrooted as necessary and connecting to them with SFTP/SSH, utilizing plain-old-versioning to develop and deploy code to the production realm.

Meet Docker - Mind Blown.

Robert had an excellent presentation, covered all of the basics and scopes of the environment and answered all questions intelligently. The only criticisms I have are as follows:

Title and description of the presentation could have been more clear about the goals of the presentation with regard to those who are not familiar with said systems. Development vs production values could have been outlined, whereas I was left with a real feeling that this was only a development ready technology, whereas after a 1 on 1 discussion with Robert I learned how I could in fact extend my development containers into production and orchestrate them with magic using some existing systems.

Overall I feel like (for me at least) this was one of the most important talksnof the conference.

Thank you Robert.

Solid talk, it got me excited to really spend the time getting Docker running in my environment.

Good introduction to containers, but very superficial and tight-up to his own workflow and use-case. Speaker has presence and very clearly communicate, but didn't showed a deep understanding of Docker itself. It was more like "This is how I do it".

Good enough to get someone new to containers starting, if your workflow is similar to his.

Great talk. Only constructive feedback I'd give is to add an onion-layer diagram to help you convey the Inception style docker-in-vagrant-on-mac port forwarding and file sharing.

I thought the presentation was good and the content was good. The examples were great for understanding the subject matter. I came into the presentation looking for ways that this technology could be used and was disappointed to not find more on the side what problems containers and docker solves. I feel like I understand the technology now without knowing what it's used for.
