Docker, making complex demos possible and training delivery simpler
Posted by Chris on July 17, 2017
In my last post I spoke of the debezium.io tutorial that takes full advantage of Docker to create a portable / fast mechanism for parties to leverage a solution set with minimal effort.
In our work with clients developing training material, we have approached it in the same fashion using Docker, Docker Compose and other features to setup a DevOps pipeline (Jenkins, Gogs, Smartbear and APIs). Provide a few run commands and the environment is ready to go. The only issues we have had in the past has been in getting Docker setup on Windows or Mac using the older Boot2Docker. For a training I did of mixed experience users (Business, Developers, QA, etc.) it took 1 hour to get everyone situated so the class could be delivered.
