Docker Tutorial 10 – Docker Compose

This is a casual Docker tutorial series. We will start out first with very simple sessions on how to install and use the docker run command. In future videos we will hit more advanced topics.     This tenth video talks about Docker Compose. We will cover basic installation and show how to create YML files to compose containers. Will will also use an Nginx/Tomcat stack as one of the examples.

Tips for Deploying NGINX (Official Image) with Docker

In the past year alone, the Docker community has created 100,000+ images and over 300+ million images have been pulled from Docker Hub to date.  Over 20 million of these pulls came from the 70+ Official Images that Docker develops in conjunction with upstream partners, like Oracle, CentOS, and NGINX.
