If you're a developer seeking to learn how to deploy applications in
containers using the open-source Docker, you have a new learning tool at your
disposal. Beginning Docker, taught by automation build engineer and DevOps
consultant Donald Simpson and published by Packt Publishing, is a two-hour-long,
hands-on video course packed with practical examples to get one started with
Docker and create amazing applications. Equipped with basic knowledge of Linux,
viewers of Beginning Docker will learn how Docker works, how to set it up and how
to get started on leveraging its benefits. From there, viewers create and share
Docker images, install Docker on their own machines, learn to manage it
effectively, and then progress to creating and publishing a custom application.
Advanced topics include Docker containers, volumes, mounts, ports, linking and
constraining containers, the Docker Web API, handling of complex automation
processes with Shipyard and the creation of a mini-Heroku PaaS with slugbuilder
and slugrunner. Packt describes the format of Beginning Docker as an
easy-to-follow and structured video tutorial with practical examples of Docker to
help viewers get to grips with each and every aspect.
