n|u Puliya, really short courses for skill bridging.

Puliya means culvert or a small bridge in Hindi.

We have been getting constant feedback about our null Humla and null Bachaav sessions. The feedback is both ways and almost all the champions are of the opinion that there are some essential non-security skills that are sorely lacking in a lot of attendees.

To "bridge" this gap in skills of our members attending the sessions we are starting null Puliya. The idea is to bridge the skill gap and get our members ready to take on advanced topics covered in null Humla and null Bachaav.

Proposed sessions for this event:

  • Docker for Everyone: An Introduction to Containers using Docker by Madhu Akula
Note: The session details including schedule are available below.


I think most you have heard of the term "containers". In this puliya session we will learn what, where and how to use containers. Eventually using it to do security automation. Containers can be really powerful and in several cases can be used to setup and run entire an infrastructure in a matter of seconds.

We will be using Docker to understand container technology. Docker is a tool specially crafted for both developers and administrators. It helps everyone to become productive as soon as possible, by fitting into everyone's primary tool set.

We will start with discussing basics to running multiple applications and service in containers using utilities like docker, docker-compose etc.

This puliya session can be applied in everyday life including office work, personal projects and many more. We will also look at various use cases to automate work flows like system administration, developer automation, security tools automation etc.
