SIG-Linux
Topic: Docker Containers:

SIG-Linux Chairman Brian Brodsky will demonstrate setting up Docker Containers under Ubuntu. From Docker’s website: Docker containers wrap a piece of software in a complete filesystem that contains everything needed to run: code, runtime, system tools, system libraries – anything that can be installed on a server. This guarantees that the software will always run the same, regardless of its environment.

All are welcome.
