Absolute Beginner’s Guide to Docker – Webinar Recording

The recording of our webinar, Absolute Beginner’s Guide to Docker, with Jonathan Turner, is now available. Subscribe to our community newsletter to receive notifications about future webinars.

Are you tired of hearing people gush about how great Docker, Kubernetes and containers are and not knowing exactly what they’re talking about? Have you heard about how amazing Docker is, but don’t know where to get started? This session may be for you.

In this session we’ll take an absolute beginner’s guide approach to Docker. We’ll go over a little about what Docker is, the difference between images and containers, a few quick ways to use Docker in a dev environment, and briefly talk about creating your own images. The goal of this session isn’t to be a comprehensive explanation of Docker.

The goal is to give attendees tools to help them push past through the “getting started” hump.

About the presenter:

Jonathan Turner
Jon looks forward to a world where everyone involved in software development cares about the quality of their software and the value it provides. He is an advocate of test driven development, pair and mob programming, continuously integrating code changes, and continuously delivering value to customers.

As a software developer with nearly 20 years of experience, he has worked in a variety of fields including government management software, children’s English language learning software, and online video-based software development training. He has also been a university instructor and frequently presents at user groups and conferences on topics such as test driven development, pair and mob programming, continuous delivery, Docker, software design patterns, C# language features, and even on origami a few times. He is a co-organizer of the Utah Software Craftsmanship group.

When he’s not developing software professionally, Jon spends time doing game and mobile development, working on a variety of robotics projects (while trying not to bring about the robot apocalypse), folding origami for friends and strangers, or spending time with his wife and three children.

P.S.: We also have a Docker tutorial in our JetBrains Guide, focusing on how to work with .NET and Docker.
