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.

    Trying to teach oneself to properly use Docker can be a monumental task. This talk is designed to determine which learning resources are worth promoting, and which simply confuse a learner more. Given in an interactive manner, Valarie will go through the resources she has been using, and as a group we'll determine which ones we ought to promote, and which ones need to leave the pool.


    Valarie Regas is a youngling developer, a recent GA Tech coding boot camp graduate, and a veteran mommy. She holds a BA in Psychology and currently works as a Teaching Assistant at GA Tech. After years being a stay-at-home mom, she decided to change her life by entering Tech, and has learned a lot along the way. She enjoys mixed martial arts fighting, table-top role playing games, creating tiny humans, and political activism.
