Attending DockerCon? Choose what workshop to attend

Following in last year’s major success, we are excited to be bringing back and expand the paid workshops at DockerCon 2017. The pre-conference workshops will focus on a range of subjects from Docker 101 to deep dives in networking, Docker for JAVA and  advanced orchestration. Each workshop is designed to give you hands-on instruction and insight on key Docker topics, taught by Docker Engineers and Docker Captains. The workshops are a great opportunity to get better acquainted and excited about Docker technology to start off DockerCon week.

DockerCon workshops

Below are overviews of each workshop. To learn more about each topic head over to the DockerCon 2017 registration site.

Learn Docker

If you are just getting started learning about Docker and want to get up to speed, this is the workshop for you. Come learn Docker basics including running containers, building images and basics on networking, orchestration, security and  volumes.

Orchestration Workshop: Beginner

You’ve installed Docker, you know how to run containers, you’ve written Dockerfiles to build container images for your applications (or parts of your applications), and perhaps you’re even using Compose to describe your application stack as an assemblage of multiple containers.

But how do you go to production? What modifications are necessary in your code to allow it to run on a cluster? (Spoiler alert: very little, if any.) How does one set up such a cluster, anyway? Then how can we use it to deploy and scale applications with high availability requirements?

In this workshop, we will answer those questions using tools from the Docker ecosystem, with a strong focus on the native orchestration capabilities available since Docker Engine 1.12, aka “Swarm Mode.”

Orchestration Workshop: Advanced

Already using Docker and recently started using Swarm Mode in 1.12? Let’s start where previous Orchestration workshops may have left off, and dive into monitoring, logging, troubleshooting, and security of docker engine and docker services (Swarm Mode) for production workloads. Pulled from real world deployments, we’ll cover centralized logging with ELK, SaaS, and others, monitoring/alerting with CAdvisor and Prometheus, backups of persistent storage, optional security features (namespaces, seccomp and apparmor profiles, notary), and a few cli tools for troubleshooting. Come away ready to take your Swarm to the next level!

Stay tuned as more workshop topics will be announced in the coming weeks! The workshops will sell out, so act fast and add the pre-conference workshops to your DockerCon 2017 registration!

Docker Networking

In this 3-hour, instructor-led training, you will get an in-depth look into Docker Networking. We will cover all the networking features natively available in Docker and take you through hands-on exercises designed to help you learn the skills you need to deploy and maintain Docker containers in your existing network environment.

Docker Store for Publishers

This workshop is designed to help potential Docker Store Publishers to understand the process, the best practices and the workflow of creating and publishing great content. You will get to interact with the members of the Docker Store’s engineering team. Whether you are an established ISV, a startup trying to distribute your software creation using Docker Containers or an independent developer, just trying to reach as many users as possible, you will benefit from this workshop by learning how to create and distribute trusted and Enterprise-ready content for the Docker Store.

Docker for Java Developers

Docker provides PODA (Package Once Deploy Anywhere) and complements WORA (Write Once Run Anywhere) provided by Java. It also helps you reduce the impedance mismatch between dev, test, and production environment and simplifies Java application deployment.

This workshop will explain how to:

  • Running first Java application with Docker
  • Package your Java application with Docker
  • Sharing your Java application using Docker Hub
  • Deploy your Java application using Maven
  • Deploy your application using Docker for AWS
  • Scaling Java services with Docker Engine swarm mode
  • Package your multi-container application and use service discovery
  • Monitor your Docker + Java applications
  • Build a deployment pipeline using common tools

Hands-On Docker for Raspberry Pi

Take part in our first-of-a-kind hands-on Raspberry Pi and Docker workshop where you will be given all the hardware you need to start creating and deploying containers with Docker including an 8-LED RGB add-on from Pimoroni. You will learn the subtleties of working with an ARM processor and how to control physical hardware through the GPIO interface. Programming experience is not required but a basic understanding of Python is helpful.

Microservices Lifecycle Explained Through Docker and Continuous Deployment

The workshop will go through the whole microservices development lifecycle. We’ll start from the very beginning and define and design architecture. From there on we’ll do some coding and testing all the way until the final deployment to production. Once our new services are up and running we’ll see how to maintain them, scale them, and recover them in case of failures. The goal will be to design a fully automated continuous deployment (CDP) pipeline with Docker containers.

During the workshop we’ll explore tools like Docker Engine with built in orchestration via swarm mode,, Docker Compose, Jenkins, HAProxy, and a few others.

Modernizing Monolothic ASP.NET Applications with Docker

Learn how to use Docker to run traditional ASP.NET applications In Windows containers without an application re-write. We’ll use Docker tools to containerize a monolithic ASP.NET app, then see how the platform helps us iterate quickly – pulling high-value features out of the app and running them in separate containers. This workshop gives you a roadmap for modernizing your own ASP.NET workloads.
