A Hands-on Introduction to Docker

Docker is popular open-source software containerization platform. It provides an ability to package software into standardised units on Docker for software development. In this hands-on introductory session, I introduce the concept of containers and provide an overview of Docker. Participants can learn important concepts in Docker step-by-step and learn by example by running commands with me. The main session involves using Docker CLI (Command Line Interface) covering all the key concepts such as creating images and managing containers.  What is more, this workshop ends with a complete example of getting some amazing work done with ease using Docker.
