This is an introduction to what Docker is, and what it can be used for. We will present each topic as a short talk before the participants get hands-on experience through exercises.

We will cover the various steps for deploying an application, in our case using nodejs. The participants will get to deploy this application and the database it communicates with, each in its own Docker container.

This workshop is geared towards developers with an interest for operations, with little or no prior experience with Docker.
