Docker on Azure Workshop

This month we’re doing another workshop, so bring your laptop! The kind folks from Microsoft are going to come show us the Azure platform. We’ll get the opportunity to deploy some Docker images on there, and experience the platform for ourselves.

The event is taking place at Centre cloud.ca, as usual, at 420 Rue Guy. Food & beverages will be sponsored by Microsoft Azure.

Suggestion: sign up to a free Azure account in advance, this gives you a 200$ credit to kick the tires :-) But don’t blow all your credits before the workshop!
