Container Solutions at GOTO Berlin

November 4, 2014 by Melanie Bobbink

On November 6th and 7th Container Solutions will be in Berlin. Adrian Mouat, Chief Scientist at Container Solutions, will give a talk "Achieving Zen through Bundling with Docker".
 

 

Adrian will give a look at how Docker can be used to provide specialised environments catering to niche requirements by wrapping applications along with their dependencies and configuration. For example, imagine starting on a new software-development project and being given a container holding an IDE configured with the coding standards, plug-ins and repositories used by the project rather than spending days getting a working environment up and running.
 
The talk will explore this technique and its potential benefits and applications, centring around a demonstration of using Docker and a customised version of Vim to provide a "writeroom" like writing environment.
 

 

Adrian Mouat is the Chief Scientist for Container Solutions. He has recently worked developing a Docker based PaaS solution for a hosting company and has written several successful blogs on Docker. He is currently writing a book on Docker for O'Reilly publishing.
