The introduction of container technology has significantly altered contemporary software development. Modern software developers are adopting Docker containers to increase the security, flexibility, and emulation of different processor architectures.
In this talk, Pedro will share his personal experience and demonstrate how easy it is to incorporate the use of Docker in higher education to expose our UG/PG students to a wide range of software development environments. Furthermore, he will discuss the differences between monolithic software and distributed software development using Docker.
