Docker Meetup

Meet other developers and ops engineers using Docker. Docker is an open platform for developers and sysadmins to build, ship, and run distributed applications. Consisting of Docker Engine, a portable, lightweight runtime and packaging tool, and Docker Hub, a cloud service for sharing applications and automating workflows, Docker enables apps to be quickly assembled from components and eliminates the friction between development, QA, and production environments. As a result, IT can ship faster and run the same app, unchanged, on laptops, data center VMs, and any cloud.

Cloudsoft will be sponsoring the meetup, and pizza and beer will be provided.


Andrew Kennedy DockerCon Recap

Fintan Ryan - Applications not infrastructure, using Weave and Docker to develop faster

Fintan is community manager at Weave where he is busy showing how Weave allows users to focus on their applications and not their infrastructure. When he is not spending too much time flicking between terminal windows he is heads down in example code and markdown files.

Fintan has been around operating systems and infrastructure for far longer than he cares to admit, but does own up to installing Slackware from floppy disks and using Solaris on sparc stations. He currently organises a number of meetups in London, including CoreOS and The Business of IoT, and helps run a number of conferences.
