About this event

We are excited to announce the October meetup scheduled for Wednesday October 17th. This presentation is based on step 1: Containerization of the CNCF Trail Map.

Do you build or run applications and want to start taking advantage of
containers? Some applications are quite easy to run in containers, while
others can be more challenging. Come learn how to build a container
friendly application in NodeJs from scratch and see first hand the things
that one must consider when building container friendly applications. Need
to containerize existing applications? No problem. This talk will go over
tips and tricks that can be used to build Docker containers from existing
applications. Whether you're building new applications or wanting to
containerize existing applications, you will walk away with the knowledge
of how to take your applications to the next level.
