    Not sure what exactly was wrong but after reading first part of the book i was lost mostly by how docker and container was described But that could be only meas for the rest of the book it contains lots of examples good for a blog post i would rather see some real life example where this can help and how this can solve our problem than how to set up wordpress on my local machineSide note i don't uite like Manning Publications as they are having source code as image in ebooks so they can do annotation this is causing that some part of the book are hard to read

    A great read and excellent reference for best practice approaches in building and running Docker images; unlike most of the reviewers of the book this hasn't been my first introduction to Docker having worked with it for well over a year now and also having read other materials on the subject What this book had that other sources lacked was succinctly written experience backed when what and why's that were fun to read to boot


  3. Christophe Addinquy Christophe Addinquy says:

    This is a decent book for sure also well illustrated But it's a reference book than an in action one It's feature oriented rather than usage oriented and it would be appreciated if opiniated advices were given From a development perspective it missed pieces about dockerability of the applicationsMa note de lecture en Français ici

    A readable overview of how Docker works and how you can use it The bulk of the book is about using and modifying existing docker images but it also covers custom images compose swarm and machine If you have been wanting to learn about Docker but haven't found the time to understand what it is and why it can be useful this book is a good place to start


  5. Sebastian Gebski Sebastian Gebski says:

    This book is enough to put you in action but it won't make you running The best thing about it is that it doesn't stop at single container level it introduces tools that operate on the higher level of abstraction Compose Machine Swarm Other thing worth mentioning is some hints for common problems with dockerizing infrastructure persistence data storage service discoveryWhat is lacking then? Examples are far too simple limited This book just screams for practical samples patterns even scenarios Even if it provides you the foundation to work things out on your own some practical reference would be than welcomeTo summarize it's a good resource on Docker Solid 3 35 stars

    Just a good intro

    This is a good and easy read that'll help one to get a grasp of the Docker fundamentals One of the difficulties I had when initially learning Docker was how things worked and why some seemingly uirky Docker behavior actually makes sense This book explains it in plain English and without pretending that it made sense to begin with This makes sense when you consider the mechanics at work The link mechanism injects IP addresses into dependent containers and containers that aren’t running don’t have IP addresses If you tried to start a container that has a dependency on a container that isn’t running Docker wouldn’t have an IP address to inject In chapter 5 you’ll learn to connect containers with user defined bridge networks to avoid this particular dependency problem The key point here is that Docker will try to resolve a container’s dependencies before creating or starting a container to avoid application runtime failures This is one of the most useful Docker books I've read thus far

    It was really enjoyable to read this aboutI read this about because I wanted to use Docker images inside our CICD pipelines the book is really informative and the writer strives to cover different aspects of Docker from the basic concept to a topic advanced such as Docker SwarmThe thing that makes this book so different is the recipe that the writer followed to covered a sophisticated idea At first the writer introduces the basic command to achieve the desired result Then he will show a proper way specifically a way to automate this boring taskAfter reading this book you will not only gain a deep understanding of the docker itself but also you will grasp a general idea of any kind of orchestrator

    The author gives a good motivation for the use of Docker containers in both personal and professional uses and gives details on usage beginning with basic command line imagecontainer creation all the way up to using Docker Machine and provision servers and Docker Swarm to run jobs in a clusterNot much is said about the actual implementation of Docker which would have been interesting but would have made it a very long book This one is very practical and immediately usable

    This book walks you through Docker in a step wise fashion Before reading this book I could create minimal Docker containers I had very little in basics but by the time I finished reading this book I could do much with DockerFor anyone starting on Docker this is the go to book You will be introduced to Docker the product Docker the platform containerization and
