This free symposium — organised by Kings College London and the Biomedical Research Centre (BRC) — will bring together people interested in using Docker images in the field of bioinformatics, and will include a 'mini-hackday' session.
Docker is now establishing itself as the de facto solution for containerization across a wide range of domains. The advantages are attractive, from reproducible research to simplifying deployment of complex code.
This event will bring together some notable cases to discuss how advantage of this new technology can best be achieved within the Bioinformatics space.
