Docker for Developers

Did software evolution make your life complicated? Can you honestly say that isolating services has made your life simple? Do you constantly need to maintain VMs, reinstall applications and start and stop services just to write a few lines of code?

Meet Docker, the tool that can simply let you do your job. Automate (almost) anything without maintaining multiple VMs. The result: leaving you with time, peace of mind and the confidence that the environment you deploy in production is as close as possible to your development machine. Gone are the days of “works-on-my-machine” train of thought.

What will you learn? We’ll start with Docker basics, how to run and build images and then learn about composition, how multiple containers can communicate and share data.
