Thanks to tools like Vagrant, Puppet/Chef, and Platform as a Service services like Heroku, developers are extremely used to being able to spin up a development environment that is the same every time. What if we could go a step further and make sure our development environment is not only using the same software, but 100% configured and set up like production. Docker will let us do that, and so much more.

Docker is fast becoming an important part of many developers toolkits. Not only are more developers using it day-to-day, but it is also becoming an important tool for deployments. We'll look at what Docker is, why you should consider using it, and all of the features developers can take advantage of.

I came into this not planning on using Docker much, but Chris' excellent training session has converted me!
