Docker is a tool to easily script, package and run applications into a lightweight container that can run on any system that has docker installed. The container contains everything it needs to run from the kernel, to the dependencies and the application. This presentation is starting from the ground up on how to run a prepackaged image, create your own image and orchestrating multiple containers to work together.

May 2018

CINNUG

Tuesday, May 22nd, Max Technical Training in Mason, OH, 6pm at our monthly CINNUG meeting, we welcome Ken Baum presenting on the pressure to continuously improve our skills and advance our careers. As a community, we understand the importance of keeping our skills current and continuously upgrading them; if we’re not moving forward, we’re falling behind. We’d like to acquire new languages, work with the latest javascript frameworks, learn new programming and design techniques, and improve our soft skills, but who has the time? The kids are in soccer and karate and band and church activities and the commute is deadly and we volunteer on the weekends; there is just no time left over for career development. In this talk, Ken is going to examine the ways in which we learn new technology and how we might improve our learning without killing ourselves or sacrificing our families. He will also look at some of the sites that are available that can help us keep our skills honed and help us learn new technologies.

 
About our Speaker:
 

Ken Baum is a senior consultant for Ingage Partners, a certified B-Corp seeking to use consulting as a force for good.  He is a software developer with over 25 years of experience, predominately on the Microsoft stack in C++ and C#. His most recent experience is on a full-stack project consisting of a Dotnet/Sql Server back-end and AngularJS front-end. He’s an experienced teacher, presenter and mentor. When he’s not learning new technology or volunteering, he loves reading and watching Netflix shows. He loves The Tick (cartoon and live action), Firesign Theater, all things Monty Python, and Call the Midwife. He considers Fringe the greatest TV show ever, and when he saw Stranger Things, he felt like he was finally home.
