The best way to learn Docker for Free: Play-With-Docker (PWD)

Last year at the Distributed System Summit in Berlin, Docker captains Marcos Nils and Jonathan Leibiusky started hacking on an in-browser solution to help people learn Docker. A few days later, Play-with-docker (PWD) was born.  PWD is a Docker playground which allows users to run Docker commands in a matter of seconds. It gives the experience of having a free Alpine Linux Virtual Machine in browser, where you can build and run Docker containers and even create clusters in Docker Swarm Mode. Under the hood Docker-in-Docker (DinD) is used to give the effect of multiple VMs/PCs. In addition to the playground, PWD also includes a training site composed of a large set of Docker labs and quizzes from beginner to advanced level available at training.play-with-docker.com. In case you missed it, Marcos and Jonathan presented PWD during the last DockerCon Moby Cool Hack session. Watch the video Continue reading…

Even more Docker Labs!

Since we launched Docker Labs back in May, we’ve had a lot of interest. So we keep adding more and improving the labs that we have. We now have 22 hands on labs for you to choose from, ranging from beginner tutorials to much more advanced ones. Here’s a peek at what we have: To accompany the launch of Windows containers in Microsoft Windows Server 2016, we launched a Windows Container beginner tutorial to walk you through setting up your environment, running basic containers and creating a basic Docker Compose multi-container application using Windows containers. We added 6 security tutorials to take advantage of some of Docker’s strong security features. A Docker community member liked our Java debugging tutorials so much, he translated our labs into Spanish. We added a new Node.js tutorial to show how to easily you can debug Node.js applications live in Continue reading…
