BASE: Gentle Introduction to Markdown
by Ed Howland
markdown ~ a lightweight markup languageSince its introduction 16 years ago, the Markdown text format has become ubiquitous in the software world and in IT in general. Its adoption across the Open Source landscape, in particular, has made it a priority for users, maintainers and contributers alike. Even though Markdown is a simplified Rich Text Format (RTF), it does require some knowledge about how to accomplish even basic tasks. We will start with a simple example and build it into a complete Markdown document. Hopefully, we will have learned how to create our own Markdown documents, make changes to open source documentation and participate more fully in social media forums.
This tutorial might show factors common with both personal and enterprise computing.
MAIN: Gentle Introduction to Docker
The diagram forms the framework of the talk.
Docker is being used in many IT environments, from large corporations using Docker with Kubernetes to hobbyists using Docker on the Raspberry PI.But what is Docker? In this talk we will explore what Docker "is" by demonstrating how to use it. We will cover the components that make up the Docker environment, including instances, images, and registries. In doing so, we will also cover some common use patterns for using containers and building images. And along the way, you will get exposed to Google's AI Notebooks, the jq command, and dsub. In the end, you will have a firm base from which to further explore the richness of Docker containers.
SLUUG Sponsored meetings in the STL Metro Area
We open the room for the general meeting about 6:00 PM.
Then we start at 6:30 PM with our BASE introductory level session (usually focused on personal computing); which may include either amazing graphical packages, blinking lights, command line wonders, demonstrations of useful applications, displays of newly discovered web sites, major resolution of long standing anomalies, quantum discoveries, smoke and mirrors, superb tutorials, or shifts in both time and space.
Sometime after 7:00 PM we attempt a quick welcome, introductions, announcements, current events of interest, and a general CALL FOR HELP (Questions and Answers) segment.
Sometime after 7:30 PM, we may take a short break before our MAIN topic (usually focused on enterprise computing),
All of our meetings are free and open to the public. There is no individual membership fee.
