You're a Java developer, but how comfortable are you and your team with using Docker? How many hours have you logged setting up an accurate test environment to research and fix bugs in production? Docker is a developer-friendly container technology that enables the easy creation of an application stack from the operating system through to an application and server. This technology also offers Package Once Deploy Anywhere (PODA) and complements Write Once Run Anywhere (WORA) provided by Java, further eroding the barriers between development, testing, and production.

Join Java Champion, JavaOne Rockstar, and Couchbase's VP of Developer Advocacy Arun Gupta to discover how to package, deploy, and scale Java applications using Docker. You'll be introduced to Docker Compose to scale applications and databases, and you'll even learn how to get started integrating Docker with popular Java tooling, such as Eclipse and Maven.
