Report from Containers (Docker) Workshop – Chennai

10 January 2016

After doing free workshop in Bangalore and Pune, next stop of free workshop was in Chennai which I delivered on 9th Jan 2016.

After doing a free workshop in Bangalore and Pune, the next stop of the free workshop was in Chennai which I delivered on 9th Jan’16.

I got few registrations for Chennai last month but after announcing it on the Chennai Linux User group, I got more registrations. I was looking for a community space to host the workshop as it was a free one. Thanks to ShakthiSystem Insights provided the space and sponsored the lunch as well.

We scheduled a half-day workshop (9 AM – 2 PM) as later we planned to go to the Linux User Group meeting, which got canceled for some reason. Due to fog, my flight got delayed and I reached Chennai ~10 AM and started the workshop at 10:40 AM. Luckily nobody left till then and because of the LUG meeting cancellation we could stretch up to 3 PM. I tried my best to cover the full-day workshop’s content in a limited time. I hope it was worth their waiting time.

One of the other feedback I got that I should cover more basics, on which I try to improve.

The workshop content was well organized and overall it was good. But there are few prospects for improvement. I strongly feel that there must be a Basic workshop for containers which just tries to make people understand the concept of containers from first principles. For example, it can start with explaining chroot and then proceed in an incremental and logical manner and arrive at the concept of containers.

Next free one day workshops are scheduled in Hyderabad, Delhi, Kolkata and Virtual. Also first two days paid workshop is scheduled Bangalore on 23rd – 24th Jan’16 and Pune one would be announced soon.
