Seeking Docker learning resource


#1

Hi there-

Is there an equivalent of Discover Meteor for Docker? DM was great for getting it all to click. The Docker eco-system is pretty complicated (from where I’m seeing it) and would appreciate if someone can point me in the right direction for getting started.

Thanks!

If you’re looking for a book then I cannot recommend this one highly enough. I paid for it and it has been invaluable for not only meteor deployments but any of my other non-meteor deployments as well.

Thanks @khamoud

Did you have devops experience before jumping into the book?

I had deployed production rails and meteor apps but the infrastructure for them was nothing to be proud of.

I found their userguide helpful. https://docs.docker.com/userguide/dockerizing/

It’s currently hard to deploy dockers to servers. They’re working on Docker Machine, Swarm and Compose to make it easier. Also checkout https://www.tutum.co/
