Only Two Weeks Left to Sign Up For The First Public Docker Training


Just a quick reminder:  As of today you have only two weeks to sign up for the very first ever public Docker training class in San Francisco!  Here’s your chance to rapidly get up to speed on Docker’s container technology with plenty of first-hand attention.  The class, held in a small intimate setting in downtown San Francisco, will be led by myself and the legendary Jérôme Petazzoni.  We are both Solutions Engineers at Docker Inc. with strong backgrounds in development and operations.  The training will be held September 17th and 18th and will cover a wide range of topics from fundamentals to best practices to orchestration and beyond.
