Let's face it, Docker is hot right now. If you’re itching to get started but aren’t sure how, you’ve come to the right place. In this tutorial, we’ll spend some time going over basic Docker concepts like Dockerfiles, containers, images and registries. Then we’ll look at some sample applications including Wordpress, Drupal and some framework-based examples and talk about strategies for building Docker images for these various different scenarios. We’ll also cover how to handle external dependencies such as file storage, databases, caches in both development and production environments.

Good docker intro to get us started. Everything was walked through slow enough to see what was going on.

The right mix of instruction and hands on.

I've just started working with Docker a little bit in my regular work, and Josh's talk shed some light on the many questions I had about the tool, the differences between its various configuration files, their individual roles, and what it looks like when everything is put together. I even learned that Docker for Mac is actually just a super performant virtual machine!

With the information that Josh provided, I finally feel equipped to give Docker an earnest go in both my personal and professional projects, as I think I'll have a far greater understanding of the relationship between all of its moving parts than I might otherwise have. This was an excellent talk that I could not possibly recommend more highly.

Really helped me understand Docker and clear up my confusion. Josh did a great job of explaining the basics then stepping through examples.

Great walk through. Everything you need to know to graduate from Vagrant​ VM to Docker Container for local development.
