Contain your Excitement: Docker for Developers

Venue: Gwinnett Georgia Microsoft Users Group (GGMUG)

Location: Lawrenceville, GA

Details: Docker is the de facto standard for container technology, a lightweight mechanism for packaging applications and runtimes in a small, portable unit that contains all of the dependencies necessary to run a component. With Docker, developers can achieve new levels of productivity with a streamlined process to pull down new containers, execute them, and even compose complex environments that can run with a single command. In this talk that assumes no prior knowledge of Docker, Jeremy discusses what containers are, how they are run and managed, then demonstrates with hands-on examples both building and running single containers with Docker and managing a full environment (database, APIs, and websites) leveraging Docker Compose.

TypeScript: JavaScript's Safety Harness

Venue: Code Career Academy Meetups

Location: Lawrenceville, GA

Details: TypeScript was introduced to the world in 2012 by Microsoft. Designed by Anders Hejlsberg who created Turbo Pascal, Delphi, and is the lead architect of the C# programming language, TypeScript is a superset of JavaScript that provides optional static types and classic object-oriented principles to the language. Designed to keep pace with the rapidly evolving JavaScript “ECMAScript” specification, TypeScript is a way to future-proof applications by leveraging cutting edge features in current browsers that may not support them yet. This talk introduces TypeScript through a series of hands on experiments. Jeremy will share his insights based on years of developing enterprise grade web applications with large teams leveraging TypeScript and why it is a “must know” language for the modern web developer.
