Tonight I gave a talk at Toronto Perl Mongers discussing docker-compose. This month’s topic started as a discussion at the end of my presentation last month, as I was using containers to demonstrate OpenAPI interaction.

There was a lot of attendee involvement in the during the presentation. Plenty of questions and discussions. The use of docker containers for MetaCPAN dominated the conversation and examples, as I had the ability to show how they worked and work with the containers running on my system.

Video for the presentation is here, and the slides with all my notes are available here

During the discussion after the formal end of the talk, I discuss a talk that I’d watched from the goto; conference on containers. The talk is by Liz Rice titled Containers from Scratch, where she codes a container environment from scratch in golang on stage. This talk solidified what containers are and how they work for me. I highly recommend it.
