Level: Intermediate, Lecture
Excerpt: Join us as we look at the practical applications Docker has for Mac admins.
Description: Docker has been rapidly growing in exposure and adoption in the IT world as it benefits both development and systems teams in their everyday operations. But apart from the larger picture of a much more streamlined flow of web-based applications from development to production it also opens new doors for Mac Admins. If you have been wanting to adopt some of the great Mac Admin-focused OSS tools out there, or if you already have adopted some but are looking to integrate more of it into your workflow this session is for you. In it, we will look at the individual building blocks that are available via Docker images and dive into how to combine and connect the pieces to create your purpose-built Mac management Mecha. No actual giant Japanese robots will be in attendance.
