Day Of Containers - Copenhagen


A full day festival focused on hands-on workshops and demos of the Docker ecosystem and the newest trends of containerization in general. Developers of all experience levels will learn about and get hands-on with all different aspects of Docker from introductory sessions on creating and running Docker containers to advanced composition and orchestration in cloud environments.

Bring Your Own Laptop (B.Y.O.L.) at Day Of Containers takes conferences to the next level. The interactive sessions provide a unique opportunity to learn hands-on, following along with an instructor step-by-step.

Viktor Farcic

Self-Healing Systems

Senior Consultant at CloudBees

We’ll explore practices and tools required to set up fully autonomous self-healing systems capable of both reactive recuperation from failures and proactive predictions of steps that should be taken to prevent failures before they happen. We’ll use tools like Docker, Docker Swarm, Docker Compose, Consul, Consul Template, Registrator and Jenkins to design and develop a system that is continuously deploying services packed as containers and performs actions that will recuperate it from failures and scale or de-scale depending on historical records.

Jan Sørensen

Buld your own Docker and feel the magic!

Independent Docker Expert

How does Docker do its magic? This session will show you how to implement some essential Docker commands as shell scripts. You will learn how to setup a “containerized environment” using standard Linux features. We will implement core Docker features including image builds, pulling images, and running an image as a container. This session will really be hands-on with exercises to get a better understanding of the topic. A Vagrant virtual machine will be provided with all the tools you need, so make sure you have Vagrant on you laptop. A good understanding of Docker and Linux is assumed.
