Containers have revolutionized software development, allowing developers to bundle their applications with everything they need, from the operating system up, into a single package.

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.
