About

Docker has been a game-changer when it comes to how modern applications are deployed and architectured.

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.

Scott Gallagher

Scott Gallagher has been fascinated with technology since he played Oregon Trail in elementary school. His love for it continued through middle school as he worked on more Apple IIe computers. In high school, he learned how to build computers and program in BASIC. His college years were all about server technologies such as Novell, Microsoft, and Red Hat. After college, he continued to work on Novell, all the while maintaining an interest in all technologies. He then moved on to manage Microsoft environments and, eventually, what he was most passionate about Linux environments. Now, his focus is on Docker and cloud environments.
