DockerCon Europe Diversity Scholarship!

Each year, DockerCon brings the community together to learn, belong and contribute. With the support of Docker and our DockerCon Europe Scholarship sponsor, the Open Container Initiative (OCI) our team has created the DockerCon Europe Scholarship Program to provide members of the Docker community, who are traditionally underrepresented, mentorship and a financial scholarship to attend DockerCon in Copenhagen this year. This scholarship program aims to foster inclusivity by supporting members of our community through access to resources, tools and mentorship needed to facilitate career and educational development.

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…

Walk, Jog, Run: Getting Smarter About Docker

  I’ve spent most of the summer traveling to and speaking at a lot of different trade shows: EMC World, Cisco Live!, VMworld, HP Discover, Dockercon, and LinuxCon (as well as some meetups and smaller gatherings). A lot of the time, I’m speaking to people who are just getting familiar with Docker. They may have read an article or have had someone walk into their office and say “This Docker thing, so hot right now. Go figure it out”. Certainly there are a number of companies running Docker in production, but there are still many who are asking fundamental questions about what Docker is, and how it can benefit their organization. To help folks out in that regard, I wrote an eBook. After someone gets a grasp on what Docker is, they tend to want to dive in and start Continue reading…

Docker Labs Repo Continues to Grow

Back in May, we launched the Docker Labs repo in an effort to provide the community with a central place to both learn from and contribute to Docker tutorials. We now have 16 separate labs and tutorials, with 16 different contributors, both from Docker and from the community. And it all started with a birthday party. Back in March, Docker celebrated it’s third birthday with more than 125 events around the world to teach new users how to use Docker. The tutorial was very popular, and we realized people would like this kind of content. So we migrated it to the labs repository as a beginner tutorial. Since then, we’ve added tutorials on using .NET and Windows containers, Docker for Java developers, our DockerCon labs and much more.     Today we wanted to call out a new series of tutorials on developer tools. Continue reading…
