Dockerising JavaScript Applications London Node User Group October 2018

Wednesday, 24 October 2018

Docker is an ecosystem that allows you to work with containers. Whilst the initial learning curve can be steep, it can ultimately make your development and deployment cycles much faster.

In this talk, I will show you how to deploy a simple front- and back-end application using Docker, and show how much faster it is than the traditional, more manual approach.


  • You can try out the code yourself using the repository on GitHub
  • A variation of the presentation is also available on Google Slides
  • A recording of the talk is available on YouTube
