Event Series Event Series: Introduction to Docker

Introduction to Docker

February 9, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm


This workshop is meant to introduce you to the set of virtualization tools referred to as Docker, which allow you to use, create, and share container images. Containers create small reproducible computing workspaces on your computer. We’ll cover the basics of Docker containerization and the platform of tools surrounding it. We’ll also cover Docker’s relevance to both general technical workplaces, and more specifically, reproducible digital scholarship research.

This workshop is part of the Core Skills series.

Pre-workshop setup:

Setting up Docker locally on your computer is optional. By doing so, you will have a reference point during the group learning activities. You are not required to do so however, and may follow along with the workshop without installing it.

This event is online. Registrants receive the link 3 hours before the event. Registration closes 24 hrs before.

If you have any questions, concerns, or accessibility needs please email jess.yao@ubc.ca or eka.grguric@ubc.ca.
