Docker Meetup at ElasticBox

We’re pleased to announce that ElasticBox is hosting a Docker Meetup on Wednesday, March 5th at 6:00pm. For those who aren’t familiar with Docker, it is an open source project where application components can be isolated as portable, lightweight containers ready to run on virtually any environment.

Docker is one of the many deployment and configuration management tools that can be used in ElasticBox. On March 5th you’ll get an overview of ElasticBox and Docker, as well as get a chance to see how Docker can be used in ElasticBox to deploy applications right away.

If you’re a developer that deploys and manages cloud applications small and large, come learn more about two awesome new products that can revolutionize your workflow.

What to Expect

On March 5th, we’ll show you how to get up and running with Docker and ElasticBox in just minutes. The schedule will be as follows:

6:00 to 6:30: Social / food & drinks

6:30 to 7:00: Introduction to Docker

7:00 to 7:30 What’s new in the last release + Docker Demo

7:30 to 8:00: Advanced Q&A and lightning talks*

*Lightning talks

– How to use Docker in ElasticBox (Containers in Boxes)

– How Shippable is leveraging docker for its CI service

We’ll start with a brief overview of ElasticBox and demo some awesome new features. We’ll also highlight two examples of how you can use ElasticBox and Docker to deploy applications right away.

First we’ll be showing you how we use Docker, Apache and Github to deploy and serve a static web page on AWS. Then we’ll demonstrate how you can deploy and manage a complex multi-tiered application. Those of you who are experienced with managing complex n-tier applications will find this portion of the Meetup extremely exciting.

See You There

Initially we opened the Meetup to only 75 attendees. But due to incredible demand, we have decided to double the capacity to 150 awesome developers!

Make sure you RSVP for the Meetup before we reach capacity. We promise that this will be a great opportunity to learn about exciting new tools in the development and virtual infrastructure space.
