Do you want to learn the basics of Docker in a single day, and do you like to learn by doing? If yes, this is the book for you.

Getting Started with Docker -- brought to you by best-selling author and Docker Captain Nigel Poulton -- assumes zero prior experience and gets you up-to-speed fast. You'll learn what Docker is, why it's so important, and where it's going in the future. You'll also get hands-on experience using Docker to deploy and manage multi-container microservices apps.

You'll perform all of the following hands-on tasks:

  • Install Docker
  • Run your first container
  • Containerize a sample app
  • Work with Docker Hub
  • Deploy and manage a multi-container app with Docker Compose
  • Deploy a WebAssembly app with Docker

Along the way, Nigel will explain everything as clearly as possible and demystify all the jargon. When you're done, you'll be ready to start working with Docker and containers!
