Docker: an open platform to package and distribute applications is all the buzz of the DevOps crowd these days. There's now a Docker Atlanta meetup group. From their meetup page:

Meet other developers and ops engineers using Docker. Docker is an open platform for developers and sysadmins to build, ship, and run distributed applications. Consisting of Docker Engine, a portable, lightweight runtime and packaging tool, and Docker Hub, a cloud service for sharing applications and automating workflows, Docker enables apps to be quickly assembled from components and eliminates the friction between development, QA, and production environments. As a result, IT can ship faster and run the same app, unchanged, on laptops, data center VMs, and any cloud.

But where to file it? Languages? No. Hardware? Nope. Applications? Maybe. I'll put it under Operating Systems since it's more SysAdmin-ish.

    Hi All,

    This month's presentation will presented by Greg Werner.  Below is the abstract.

    This talk will discuss how 3Blades has created a data science collaboration platform using Docker, Docker Compose, and Docker Swarm. This platform allows users to spawn and manage dedicated Jupyter Notebooks, RESTful endpoints and cron services to train, build and deploy machine learning and deep learning models. Docker is a key piece of the platform's technology used to manage this multi-user and multi-team data science environments.

    In addition to demonstrating how these technology pieces work today, the 3Blades team will provide context on how they got to the current iteration, as well as provide a roadmap for future docker related endeavors. Specific topics that will be covered include: deploying docker engine and docker compose to AWS, Dockerfiles to build and manage docker images for the full stack in addition to custom end-user images, use of CI/CD with DockerHub for automated testing and deployment pipelines, among others. This will be an interactive talk with plenty of examples which will all be shared on GitHub!

    About 3Blades 3Blades, and Atlanta based company, provides an open-source data science platform which empowers data scientists, business analysts and decision makers to collaborate and quickly build, visualize and deploy machine and deep learning models. It runs securely in the cloud or on-premises, providing every organization an easier way to benefit from their data. Visit us at or email us at

    Greg's presentation will begin at 7:00. Please join us at 6:30 and/or stick around a bit afterward for good conversation, food and drink.
