Containers have revolutionized software development, allowing developers to bundle their applications with everything they need, from the operating system up, into a single package. Docker is one of the most popular platforms for containers, allowing them to be hosted on-premises or on the cloud, and to run on Linux, Windows, and Mac machines. With Docker Succinctly by Elton Stoneman, learn the basics of building Docker images, sharing them on the Docker Hub, orchestrating containers to deliver large applications, and much more.

Containers change how developers build, test, and deploy code. Adopting them takes time. Using them the wrong way can slow down your delivery process.
But you don't have a team of engineers to dedicate to this like Spotify or Netflix do. Maybe you're a startup CTO with features to ship - you can't spend hundreds of hours on intern...
When you start building your first containerized application, you're excited about the capabilities and opportunities you encounter: it runs the same in dev and in prod, it's straightforward to put together a container image using Docker, and the distribution is taken care of by a container registry.
So, you're satisfied with how ...
