Developers ranked Docker as the #1 most wanted platform, #2 most loved platform, and #3 most broadly used platform in the 2019 Stack Overflow Developer Survey. Nearly 90,000 developers from around the world responded to the survey. So we asked the community why they love Docker, and here are 10 of the reasons they shared:   It works on everyone’s machine. Docker eliminates the “but it worked on my laptop” problem. “I love docker because it takes environment specific issues out of the equation – making the developer’s life easier and improving productivity by reducing time wasted debugging issues that ultimately don’t…

There are over one million Dockerfiles on GitHub today, but not all Dockerfiles are created equally. Efficiency is critical, and this blog series will cover five areas for Dockerfile best practices to help you write better Dockerfiles: incremental build time, image size, maintainability, security and repeatability. If you’re just beginning with Docker, this first blog post is for you! The next posts in the series will be more advanced. Important note: the tips below follow the journey of ever-improving Dockerfiles for an example Java project based on Maven. The last Dockerfile is thus the recommended Dockerfile, while all intermediate ones are there only…

Delivered as part of Docker Enterprise 3.0, Docker Desktop Enterprise is a new developer tool that extends the Docker Enterprise Platform to developers’ desktops, improving developer productivity while accelerating time-to-market for new applications. It is the only enterprise-ready Desktop platform that enables IT organizations to automate the delivery of legacy and modern applications using an agile operating model with integrated security. With work performed locally, developers can leverage a rapid feedback loop before pushing code or docker images to shared servers / continuous integration infrastructure. \Imagine you are a developer & your organization has a production-ready environment running Docker Enterprise….

We’ve talked a lot about how Docker Enterprise supports and simplifies Kubernetes. But how are organizations actually running Kubernetes on Docker Enterprise? What have they learned from their experiences? Here are three of their stories: McKesson Corporation When you visit the doctor’s office or hospital, there’s a very good chance McKesson’s solutions and systems are helping make quality healthcare possible.

We started working with Microsoft five years ago to containerize Windows Server applications. Today, many of our enterprise customers run Windows containers in production. We’ve seen customers containerize everything from 15 year old Windows .NET 1.1 applications to new ASP.NET applications. If you haven’t started containerizing Windows applications and running them in production, here are five great reasons to get started: 1. It’s time to retire Windows Server 2008 Extended Support ends in January 2020. Rewriting hundreds of legacy applications to run on Windows Server 2016 or 2019 is a ridiculously expensive and time-consuming headache, so you’ll need to find…

Fresh off the heels of DockerCon and the announcement of Docker Enterprise 3.0, an end-to-end and dev-to-cloud container platform, I wanted to share some thoughts on what we mean when we say “complete container platform”. Choice and Flexibility A complete solution has to meet the needs of different kinds of applications and users – not just cloud native projects but legacy and brownfield applications on both Linux and Windows, too. At a high level, one of the goals of modernization – the leading reason organizations are adopting container platforms – is to rid ourselves of technical debt. Organizations want the freedom to create…
