PyNE Sept 2016 - containers

location Campus North | 6pm Wed 14th Sept 2016

Everyone is talking about containers, everybody loves containers, containers FTW! But what are containers, why would I use them and more importantly how can I use Python to make running containers easier?

Tom Cooper (@tomncooper) will give an introduction to the basics of containers. What they can be used for and how Python can automate and add even more awesomeness to them.

This talk will focus on LXD and Docker. It will hopefully be straightforward enough for people to follow along. These tools (like all important things) run great on Linux and pretty well on Mac. But Windows users may want to run an Ubuntu (other linux distributions are available) VM.

Pizza will be courtesy of our kind sponsors Sharpe Recruitment (@sharperecruit) and Pebble (@mypebble) - get there early to get a slice! And we once again will be hosted by the ace folks at Campus North (@campusnorthuk).

Campus North is down the hill from the Body Zone Gym and the Bunker Coffee & Kitchen on the corner of Carliol Square. Please ring the doorbell, or tweet @PythonNorthEast, to get let in.

Hope to see you there and please spread the word.

The meetup requires a minimum of 15 signed up to proceed.
