Building Microservices with Docker

A session at SDD 2016

Monday 16th May, 2016

9:30am to 5:30pm (GMT)

In this workshop, we’ll briefly introduce the core concepts of Microservices, before diving deep into the details behind how you can build and deploy them. Attendees will participate in a number of interactive exercises using Docker and friends to learn some concrete techniques for managing Microservices, including service discovery, scaling via multi-host Docker, and version management.

This workshop is definitely more about the ‘how’ rather than the ‘why’.
