You probably have heard of the term Docker and you might have heard that a lot of developers think it is the next big thing since sliced bread. In this session I will introduce you to what containers are, what Docker is, how you can run your existing application on Docker and explain why this has so many advantages. I will demystify terms like Docker for Windows, Docker on Windows, Docker Swarm, Container services, etc. After attending this session, you will have a full understanding on what container technology is, what Docker brings to the table, and how it can revolutionize the way you do software development in the future!

You will learn:

  • What containers are on windows
  • How docker is used
  • What orchestrators are and how to use them
