Docker is an open platform for deploying distributed applications using container-based virtualization on Linux. This talk will provide an overview of Docker, and will describe how to get started using Docker to speed up application development, deployment and testing across multiple environments. We’ll step through building a Dockerized web application using NodeJS and Cesium: an open source JS library for creating WebGL-based 3D globes and maps.
