After my very rough workshop on Reclaim Cloud at last year’s NYC Digital Humanities (NYCDH) Week event, I was surprised the good folks reached out again this year. That said, I jumped at the opportunity to sit on a panel on February 7th to kickoff the theme of the week centered around supporting Digital Humanities. I’ll be roundtabling alongside Jennifer Serventi and Moacir de Sá Pereira at this year’s event next week, and I’m very much looking forward to it because support is what Reclaim Hosting’s entire enterprise is built upon.
And for the NYCDH’s sins, I went ahead and submitted a demonstration/workshop featuring Reclaim Cloud once again. It’s Tuesday morning, February 8, at 8 AM EST, and as you might be able to tell from the title I’m doubling down on Docker!
Containing DH: How to Use Docker to Run Just About Anything
This session with be a demonstration of how to use Docker in Reclaim Cloud to run just about any application on the web. It will be interactive in that after the initial demonstration we will be taking requests from the audience to install those hard to run applications in order to model the process. Come to this session if you want to get your Digital Humanities project up and running without the need of an IT department.
There is only one person signed-up so far, so I probably missed the mark entirely with my title and description, but if you are interested it is free as in puppies, and I’d love to talk Docker with you next week.
