SQL Server 2019 uses Kubernetes in its architecture. In order to better understand this architecture, let's talk a bit about Docker


About this Event

Speaker: Albert Herd

During the session, we'll be covering several topics:

• What's Docker anyway? (I expect you to have a vague clue; though here's a short video -

• Installing Wordpress using containers

• We'll also investigate a custom application with Microservices in mind

• We'll also go through some more "delicate" constructs, such as

o Volumes

o Networking

• Deploy our Wordpress application and custom application on a Virtual Machine that we'll create during the session itself ("no strings attached")

• We'll also deploy these applications on the Cloud - we'll see how Azure can simplify these deployments

• Investigate a case study on VISA and how they've adopted Docker in their huge production workloads.


Here are some other points in no particular order:

• This session is language-agnostic - if you're coming from a C#, C++, Java, Python or you just happen to be interested in Tech and Business, there is something for you to learn.

• If the interest high, we'll be extending this presentation (next year though) on Kubernetes.
