Heard a lot about docker but not sure where to start? In this presentation we will go over the simplest ways to convert your development environment over to a docker stack, including support for full acceptance testing with Selenium. We’ll then go over how to modify the stack to mimic your production/pre-production environment(s) as closely as possible, and demystify working with the containers in the stack.

Great overview and explanations of the commands. While risky, it'd be cool to demo the commands a little more. This might would help bring the overview to life.

I have pretty much the same criticism of all of the Docker talks that I've seen: they go from zero to getting your local development environment set up with a bunch of Docker containers. That's a huge step forward for getting your team to at least all have the same dev setup. My current team is mostly Windows machines with a couple of Macs, so that alone is a big step forward. But I haven't seen any talks about taking the next step, getting your containers up as a staging environment on through to production. That being said, getting your environment into production clearly isn't what your talk was meant to be about, but that might be a great next talk!

As for what you *actually* talked about, the thought of including containers running headless Firefox for Selenium testing sounds like something I want to add to my workflow. The only real issue I had was that the fonts were hard to see near the back of that long skinny room.
