Interactive Docker Workshop

Tim Laurence will lead an interactive tutorial on setting up and using Docker. If you have a laptop, you can bring it and follow along.

Tim has made Docker preparatory materials available at https://github.com/timdaman/docker-tutorial. He writes: "Tell people to be prepared or else. ;)" which probably means he is not going to make time at the beginning of the evening for people to get set up.
