Abstract: 

Have you tried replicating consistent environments in development, staging & production? Have you tried to keep the operational cost low by efficiently using the computing resources? How about scaling your application when you get popular? Containerization is one of the core tenets for operating at scale. Containers enable predictable environments for your deployments in dev/staging/production and adds to developer efficiency. Containerization lets you run your application on any compute resource whether it is AWS, GCE or a Datacenter. In this tutorial you are going to learn about the basics of Docker, a popular containerization technology, and get hands-on experience containerizing an application. You will learn how to Dockerize an application written in Go/Ruby/Node. You do not need to know all these languages. Knowing one of it helps. If you have an existing app in any of these languages you can containerize it in the class or a sample app will be provided for you to download.
