Build Once, Run Anywhere – with Docker and Dockerfiles
Friday, February 22, 2019 @ 8:30 am - 4:30 pm
Location: Lubar Hall, N333
Workshop presenter, Raju Gandhi, is a programmer, consultant, speaker, trainer, and all-around nice guy. He has worked in the software industry for over 15 years and has experience in both government and private sectors. Raju is a practitioner of both Agile and DevOps methods as well as good programming and architectural patterns and believes that finding the right balance between such practices will allow us to deliver software that our customers cherish. He is also a strong advocate of functional programming and a proponent of immutability across both software and hardware. Raju is a regular speaker at conferences around the country (and occasionally around the world) and has routinely participated in the No Fluff, Just Stuff tour. In his spare time, you will find Raju reading, playing with technology, or spending time with his wonderful (and significantly better) other half.
