You may have already experimented with Docker—running one of the prebuilt images from Docker Hub, for example. If so, you have likely recognized the benefits that Docker, in conjunction with experimentation, offers when building microservices and the advantages the technology brings to development, testing, integration, and, ultimately, production.

But before deploying any containers into a live environment, you must create a comprehensive build pipeline. Integrating containers into a continuous delivery pipeline is far from easy; along with its benefits, Docker presents both technological and process-related challenges. Viktor Farcic gets you started on your Docker journey, addressing Docker's challenges and outlining the steps you need to take to create a fully automated Jenkins pipeline that continuously builds, tests, and deploys microservices into a Docker Swarm cluster.
