Docker Tutorial For Beginners

Docker. It's a glimpse into the future of our industry. It's also a bunch of text files and a load of long-winded and awkward syntax.

I like Docker.

I think you will like Docker, too.

In this Docker Tutorial For Beginners, I will show you how I work with Docker. I will show you the short cuts I use, and how you can use mine, and make your own.

There are some fundamentals that we need to learn. I keep them as brief and practice as possible, but please, don't skip them.

This will be a practical introduction. To get the most from this course, please copy along. If anything is unclear, please ask in the comment for the relevant video, I will do my best to help you.

How far you go with Docker is entirely up to you. I will show you a way to run Docker for your Digital Ocean droplets, regardless of whether you are a Fortune 500 company, or a dev in your home office or bedroom.

I use this stuff. I use it in production. I use it for development, and I use it for running automated tests. It works, but it's not painless. Not yet anyway.

I hope you enjoy this course, and you are inquisitive enough to give it a shot.

Note that this course may / should work on Docker Enterprise Edition (EE), but I have not tested it with Docker EE.
