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.

    Docker Birthday #5 Celebration - Atlanta Edition

    The goal of this global celebration is to welcome in our community Docker users and help them learn Docker's latest features through a series of hands-on labs. Advanced Docker users are invited to get involved on-site and act as mentors.

    This year, celebrations all over the world will take place March 19-25, 2018. Come learn, mentor, celebrate, eat cake, and take an epic #dockerselfie!

    Docker Birthday #5 Hands-on Labs include:

    • Docker 101 for Linux users
    • Docker 101 for Windows users
    • Kubernetes on Docker for Mac and Docker for Windows
    • Modernizing Traditional Java Apps
    • Modernizing Traditional .NET / Windows Apps
    • Deploying Multi-OS applications with Docker EE

    Attendees should make sure to bring their own laptops to complete the labs.

    No need to install anything ahead of these events, we'll be using Play with Docker (PWD), a Docker playground which allows users to run Docker commands in a matter of seconds. It gives the experience of having a free Alpine Linux Virtual Machine in browser, where you can build and run Docker containers and even create clusters. In addition to the playground, PWD also includes a training site composed of a large set of Docker labs and quizzes from beginner to advanced level available at
