Getting started with Containers and Docker on Azure

Wondering what this Docker thing is and what it can do for you? This is the session for you. In this hands-on talk, I’ll introduce the concepts of containers with a focus on how Docker can be used with Azure.

Most of us use Virtual Machines on a regular basis, but in my experience it challenging for developers and admins to build out automation that achieves what was promised with virtualization. Containers are based on some old ideas, but when applied with virtualization they can enable faster performance and portability.

This talk is focused at those new to containers and Docker who are looking to understand the concepts in this area, and see how it can be used in a hands-on fashion. If you already have experience with containers and Docker you may be better served by checking out more advanced talks on the Docker channel ( and enjoying another talk at Code Camp.
