“Knowing this detail would have saved me DAYS of research”
Docker has a steep learning curve if you want to use it right.
Most courses and tutorials focus on “how” to use it, but don’t provide enough background to understand “why” things are the way they are.
You will need the "why" insights to progress beyond a certain point in your Docker learning journey. You’ll have to get a clear understanding what problems and assumptions shaped the way containers are used today.
This book aims to provide you with "why" and non-obvious implicit knowledge that’s well-known among experienced practitioners but rarely written about.
All in one place. Short and to the point.
Little snippets of information, which will help to boost your learning experience and put all the pieces of knowledge you have gained so far into the right perspective. Stuff which is hard to acquire on your own except through extensive research and hard-won experience, but which can fundamentally change the way you look at Docker and the container ecosystem.
Topics to be Covered
- What usecases they are especially well-suited for.
- What they won’t help you solve.
- What powers container technology under the hood.
- What common primitives exist (containers, images) and why they look the way they do.
- Understanding Docker - the tool and its jobs.
- Frequent gotchas around containers to watch out for.
- What practical problems containers introduce.
- Container runtimes, and how the ecosystem is developing.
