Learning Docker

Applications working on one machine but not others is a common problem in software development. Configuration management tools and virtual machines are common solutions, but can be cumbersome and more complicated than necessary for developers who just want their code to run in other places safely.

Docker, an open-source containerization platform, simplifies the deployment and management of your applications by packaging your apps into images that run in containers—standardized executable components combining application source code with the operating system libraries and dependencies required to run that code in any environment. In this course, software engineer Carlos Nunez introduces the basics of Docker, including its containers, Dockerfiles (or base images), and capabilities. Watch and learn how to build your own containers.
