Docker is often lauded as a tool for deploying and running applications - but it's also extremely useful for your local development process. Whether you've never used Docker, or you've been using it for a while but aren't quite sure how it all actually works, this talk will give you an in-depth understanding of Docker and how to use it locally. We'll cover creating your own Dockerfiles, building, tagging and pushing images, running containers, networking multiple containers with Docker Compose and debugging your setup.

Really useful information about how to get started with Docker. A good level of detail for beginners. Very succesful live coding!

Very Well Done. Thank you for coming and the talk was very informative.

Technical issues not withstanding, this was a great talk full of useful information. I especially appreciated the focus on `docker compose`, as far too many people think of containers as just a variant on VMs.

Nice intro to Docker, easy to follow for beginners!

This talk is THE talk I came for. I've always struggled to see what the point of Docker was. "I can run the exact same image in development and production, but if I develop, I will be changing that image, so what's the point?"

I've got a much clearer picture of it now.

Docker makes a lot more sense to me now, I felt like my knowledge of docker grew by leaps and bounds during this talk.
