edPUG Tuesday 19th January 2016: David McKay: Let's say hello to Docker
Tue 19 January 2016, 19:00 – 21:00 GMT
It is now 2016 and a very exciting year for PHP lies ahead with the recent release of the speedy PHP 7.
You may have been drinking like an elePHPant over the festive break. Fear not! We have a late Christmas present for you all in the form of an excellent talk on Docker by David McKay to get you feeling ship shape again!
Docker, the hottest technology around at the moment ... it swept the Ops world by storm in 2014, became mainstream in 2015, and now it’s set to dominate the developer world, in 2016.
Docker is a tool that allows you to package your application up into a single-runnable distributable binary - akin to the phar, but in Hulk mode. Docker allows you, a developer, to specify the exact environment your application needs to run, across development; test; staging; and production.
In this talk I will cover the creation of this utopian distributable and show you how to can compose your entire production infrastructure locally with only a small YAML file and without installing a single thing.
Let's say hello, to Docker.
