Docker in Action Video Edition

Video Description

"In this book, Jeff goes from zero to Docker, showing practices of deploying Docker in production and demonstrating many features of Docker."
Ahmet Alp Balkan, Microsoft

Docker in Action teaches you how to create, deploy, and manage applications hosted in Docker containers. After starting with a clear explanation of the Docker model, you will learn how to package applications in containers, including techniques for testing and distributing applications. You will also learn how to run programs securely and how to manage shared resources. Using carefully designed examples, the book/course teaches you how to orchestrate containers and applications from installation to removal. Along the way, you'll discover techniques for using Docker on systems ranging from dev-and-test machines to full-scale cloud deployments.

The idea behind Docker is simple. Create a tiny virtual environment, called a container, that holds just your application and its dependencies. The Docker engine uses the host operating system to build and account for these containers. They are easy to install, manage, and remove. Applications running inside containers share resources, making their footprints small.
Inside:

  • Packaging containers for deployment
  • Installing, managing, and removing containers
  • Working with Docker images
  • Distributing with DockerHub
To follow the book you need only have a working knowledge of the Linux OS. No prior knowledge of Docker is assumed.

A software engineer, Jeff Nickoloff has presented Docker and its applications to hundreds of developers and administrators at Desert Code Camp, Amazon.com, and technology meetups.

All there is to know about Docker. Clear, complete, and precise.
Jean-Pol Landrain, Agile Partner Luxembourg

A compelling narrative for real-world Docker solutions. A must-read!
John Guthrie, Pivotal, Inc.

An indispensable guide to understanding Docker and how it fits into your infrastructure.
Jeremy Gailor, Gracenote

Will help you transition quickly to effective Docker use in complex real-world situations.
