Docker is an open source project that automates the applications deployment into Container software, providing an additional abstraction thanks to virtualization at the level of the operating system. Docker uses the isolating feature of the Kernel Linux resources, for example cgroups and namespaces, in order to allow to independent containers to coexist on the same instance, avoiding the installation and maintenance of a virtual machine.


The workshop will introduce the Docker ecosystem and the principle concepts related to containers world.

During the workshop, there will be some presentations and exercises on advanced topics: demo from AWS instances (swarm and overlay included) with images based on alpine and the new security and data volume features.


Everyone must bring his own laptop with an ubuntu 14.04 VM with Docker installed (follow the online procedure in order to have the latest release installed). Docker suggests Ubuntu for the native aufs support.

È necessario avere il proprio portatile con una VM ubuntu 14.04 con docker installato (seguendo la procedura online in modo da avere l’ultima release disponibile). Docker consiglia ubuntu per il supporto nativo ad aufs.
