♫ Come with me
♫ And you'll be
♫ In a world of pure containerization

That didn't quite track, but this class will. Docker is a tool that packages, provisions and runs containers. Docker allows you to run a process in an environment where it has exactly and only what it needs to run and can be run alongside other containers on the same computer without all the overhead of hypervisor based virtual machines. In this class we will be going over the basics of how to build docker images and run dockers containers.

What we're about

The Software Freedom School exists to teach the world how to use and why to choose free software.

David L. Willson and Heather L. Willson started SFS in 2013 to help teach the world free software and to feed the whole student, mind (techie classes), body (delicious food), and spirit (libre software). We host Software Freedom First Saturday at the SFS HQ or Englewood Public Library: From 11am - 3pm you can learn about free software.

There are other events throughout the month and activities you can become involved in: Linux Camp and Study Groups to name a couple.

Our ideal members, via Meetup, are people, just like you, looking to learn more about freedom in the software community. It could be a new graduate, a person looking to change careers, someone who is super savvy but has been using the proprietary software for too long!

We are a community based company in the Denver area. We want to partner with hacker-spaces, maker-spaces, LUG's, small businesses, entrepreneurs, and small, free schools like us. Our goal is to teach the world how to use and why to choose free software and it would be wonderful if you joined us!

We look forward to meeting you and are excited for you to be part of the libre community!
