Docker in Action teaches listeners 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 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 manage and applications running inside share resources, making their footprints small.

What's inside:

  • Packaging containers for deployment
  • Installing, managing, and removing containers
  • Working with Docker images
  • Distributing with DockerHub

Listeners need only have a working knowledge of the Linux OS. No prior knowledge of Docker is assumed. Jeff Nickoloff, a software engineer, has presented Docker and its applications to hundreds of developers and administrators at Desert Code Camp, Amazon, and technology meetups.
