An introduction to Docker for developers and testers who have never used it. Docker is a popular technology but it is often confusing for the novice. This talk makes no assumptions about prior Docker knowledge and takes the student through the basic concepts and terminology. Along the way attendees will learn how to build images, run containers, map ports and create mounts. Finally Docker Compose is introduced. Please make sure you install Docker **before** the workshop by following the setup information at: Thanks to @bretfisher and @jpetazzo for writing these setup instructions and saving me a lot of time.
