Book Description

Docker has been a game-changer when it comes to how modern applications are deployed and architectured. It has now grown into a key driver of innovation beyond system administration, with an impact on the world of web development and more. But how can you make sure you're keeping up with the innovations it's driving? How can you be sure you're using it to its full potential?

This book shows you how; it not only demonstrates how to use Docker more effectively, it also helps you rethink and reimagine what's possible with Docker.

You will also cover basic topics such as building, managing and storing images along with best practices to make you confident before delving more deeply into Docker security.

You'll find everything related to extending and integrating Docker in new and innovative ways. Docker Swarm and Docker Compose will help you take control of your containers in an efficient way.

By the end of the book, you will have a broad and detailed sense of exactly what's possible with Docker and how seamlessly it fits in with a range of other platforms and tools.
