Workshop Details: This Docker 101 workshop is designed to get you up and running with containers! You'll learn how to build images, run containers, use volumes to persist data and mount in source code, and define your application using Docker Compose. We'll even mix in a few advanced topics, such as networking and image building best-practices. There is definitely something for everyone.
