Docker Global Mentor Week 2016 - Kanpur03 Nov 2016
I have not been blogging quite often but you must have guessed from my posts that I love Docker. It's beautiful piece of technology which comes with a lot of great tooling for developers, devops and infrastructure administrators.
I am Docker Kanpur Meetup Group organiser. We are organising Docker Global Mentor Week in Kanpur on November 18, 2016.
If you are from Kanpur or around (Lucknow, Unnao, etc.), please do join the meetup group, and participate in this and future events. It's lot of learning, and fun to be at meetups.
For your convenience, I am embedding event information below even though it's available on meetup page. RSVP is must, and we only have space for 20 people. Please confirm it on meetup page.
I look forward to meeting you at the event. Let's make it fun and successful.
Join us for our Kanpur edition of the Docker Global Mentor Week!
Docker Global Mentor Week is your opportunity to #learndocker. Right now, Docker is working on self paced online labs that will be available through LearnDot. One lab will be for beginners and one lab will be for intermediate users. Docker mentors will be on hand at this event to help you as you work through the self paced materials.
Are you an advanced user? We strongly encourage Docker users of all skill levels to attend! We need a network of mentors who understand the Docker platform to answer any questions that newcomers may have. Click here to sign up as a mentor.
Agenda: November 18, 2016
- 16:00 - Doors Open
- 16:15 - Welcome message, presentation of Docker & snacks
- 16:30 to 18:30 - Select and work through self-paced lab
- 18:30 - Socializing
As we get closer to the event, we will share more information including materials on how to prepare for the training.
At the training, you will need to bring your own computer. Before you go to a mentoring event, there are some steps you should do some preparation to get your work environment ready. This will help get ready for the tutorial, and also save on bandwidth at the event venue. Here are the steps:
Set-up Docker on your machine
For Linux users, we need you to install Docker engine and Docker compose. Make sure you have Docker compose version 1.6 or higher by running docker-compose version from the command prompt.
For Mac users, install Docker for Mac or if you have an older Mac, Docker Toolbox.
For Windows users, if you have Windows 10 pro install Docker for Windows, otherwise install Docker Toolbox.
If you are a Docker for Windows user and want to try the new Windows containers, you need to have fully updated your machine. To prepare to use Windows containers,
Go through the setup steps in the Windows Container lab.
In Powershell run
docker pull microsoft/windowsservercore:latest
This will take awhile, but it is essential you do this before going to the venue. The Windows base image is a 3 gig download.
If you're new to Docker, pre-pull the docker images for the very basic tutorial
- docker pull hello-world
- docker pull alpine
- docker pull seqvence/static-site
To run the application and participate in the rest of the training, pre-pull these images
- docker pull microsoft/dotnet:1.0.0-preview1
- docker pull node:5.11.0-slim
- docker pull python:2.7-alpine
- docker pull redis:alpine
- docker pull postgres:9.4
For the orchestration part, you will want to pre-build the demo app by running the following steps
- git clone git://github.com/jpetazzo/orchestration-workshop
- cd orchestration-workshop/dockercoins
- docker-compose build
