You've heard the hype - maybe even drunk the kool aid - come along and see Docker in action!

Docker adds some niceties to Linux containers such as AUFS, version control, docker registry (repository), versioning etc. This talk will serve as an introduction to working with docker tools. I'll cover the basic concepts behind docker and explain the difference between a docker container and a VM. Show a demo of how easy it is to create a docker image and launch a container from it. Briefly explain the idea behind Dockerfile and show some examples and tools.

I'll cover how networking and filesystem changes are handled in Docker. Show a demo of how to deploy an application in docker and explain why it's useful to do so in production - and of course it's limitations!
