  • Containers: How Do They Work?, Wednesday @ 15:00, LG26
  • Annual Table Quiz, April 11th @ 19:00 in NuBar

Containers: How Do They Work?

Don’t know your Dockers from your Rkts? Ever wondered what these ‘container’ things everyone’s talking about are? Join us in LG26, where we’ll have Cormac (~pints) from Demonware coming to demystify the wonderful world of process isolation. Absolute beginners welcome! This talk assumes no prior container or virtualisation experience, though a little Linux knowledge would help!


Annual Table Quiz

The annual wrap up event for the year is our famous table quiz!

We’ve got some cool prizes to give away this year and we’re deciding on the ever coveted raffle prize at the moment

There’s no doubt the Redbrick Table Quiz will be as fantastic as ever this year! We hope to see you all there!

Entry per person: €3 ( that’s €12 for a table of 4)

Raffle Tickets: €1 or a strip for €3
