Today developers want to change the code, build and deploy often, even several times per day.
New versions of software may need to be tested on different distributions, and with different configurations.

This presentation focuses on the opportunities to configure automatically Docker images, use Docker containers as disposable workers during your tests, and even running your Continuous Integration system inside Docker.
