Writing the code for your applications is loads of fun, but often deploying your application and then scaling it to match your load can be hard and frustrating.

The new world of software containers such as Docker can provide you with standard and repeatable ways to solve these problems, and manage a large chunk of your application deployment and scaling needs.

In this talk we will take a simple Node.js application, and use it look at some of the basics of Docker, such as writing Dockerfiles, building images and pushing to registries. Finally we will deploy our code to the open source Kubernetes project so we can then scale our application across multiple running containers and machines.
