August Followup

It was a small turnout tonight, probably something to do with work schedules, deliverables, vacations and Brazilian style rain. The good news is that due to a laptop issue and a spate of excess work, I had not managed to get my docker talk together, so I recycled a talk I had done for OCLUG earlier this year.

The talk was on static site generation and it featured a demo that used digital ocean droplets (docker like instances) for the source machine representing a laptop or desktop and the target web server. The demo consisted of creating two linux environments, adding the necessary (minimal) packages and creating a website from some markdown text files and a little css and javascript magic. The object being to showcase the use of services like digital ocean to provide on demand environments for specific tasks. More information will be in the talk that I hope to have ready for September. The slides for the talk are also available.
