Docker has become the de facto standard for Linux container management. It provides a portable and isolated environment for applications. Come hear William Henry from Red Hat, and a Docker contributor, explain what all the fuss is about, how Docker works and how you can take advantage of it. William will explain the concepts and then get hands on with simple and then more complex examples. You will learn some best practices and about other technologies in the Docker ecosystem including how it can be used with Java.
