So what’s all this fuss about β€œDocker”?

Saturday: 09:30 - 12:30

Workshop leader: Kim Thoenen

Docker is all around the technical media nowadays. But what is it all about and why are so many people excited about it - and what does it offer you, the Django developer?

Even if you already know a bit about Docker, you’re probably more familiar with it as a deployment tool, but in fact it offers some powerful advantages for the Python/Django developer too.

This is a hands-on workshop that also aims to clarify some key questions for the Django developer:

- Why is Docker such a big deal?

- What problems can Docker solve for me?
- How does it work?
- How can it enhance my development experience?

In the workshop we’ll help install and configure Docker on your laptop (Linux/OS X/Windows), to have it working in a clear and manageable way.

Then we’ll step through setting up a Django project with Docker.

If we have time, we’ll go on to show how Docker can help you move your project from development to deployment with minimum friction.
