HackJam Workshop event on Docker (Brussels)

banner for hackjam event brussels 2019

We are happy to announce that Progressive will be hosting the next HackJam session. The event will take place on Wednesday 17th of July in our Brussels office. 

What is a HackJam? 
 

A HackJam is an evening full of learning. It’s a free event, in which we welcome all developers from a city to join us after work for a fun & challenging evening of coding. We usually start with some food and drinks in a convivial get-together to charge all energy levels, and continue by a brief introduction. Afterwards attendees are challenged to fix bugs or architect an application using a new technology. To do this, they get the help from our passionate mentors. This way, developers get the chance to discover a new technology and learn about it in a really hands-on way.

Docker
 

During this Hackjam, we'll discuss some of Docker' basic concepts, architecture and the problems they solve.

This introduction will provide you with a solid understanding of the origin and the building blocks for Docker. 

You'll learn about the following concepts: 

  • Familiarisation with concept of container and Docker
  • Use and control your docker container
  • Build your docker image
  • Network and persistent storage with Docker
  • Drive a set of container with Docker Compose

A study conducted by Employee Benefits News stated that the average cost of losing an employee amounts to 33% of their annual salary. This means that as an employer, you don’t only lose talent or time – but also valuable funding that you could have allocated to other investment projects or resources.
