Sometimes our job or even our interest to learn something new, requires from us to install a lot of different software to allow a specific program to run on our operating system. This (in the best case) might just prohibit your program to run due to conflicts between different library or language versions; in the worst case your operating system will start becoming full of junk and later on will be slow and insecure. In this course we will explore two relatively new but very well established virtualisation technologies: Vagrant and Docker and how those tools can help us to keep a tidy, exportable and transferable developing environment on our home or work computer.
