Get into Docker – A Guide for Total Newbies

Have you heard about Docker? Most likely. If not, don’t worry, I’ll try to summarise it for you. Docker is probably one of the hottest technologies at the moment. It has the potential to revolutionise the way we build, deploy and distribute applications. At the same time, it’s already having a huge impact in the development process.

 In some cases, the development environments can be so much complicated, that it’s hard to keep the consistency between the different team members. I’m pretty sure that most of us already suffered from the syndrome “Works on my Machine”, right? One way to deal with the problem is to build Virtual Machines (VM) with everything set up so you can distribute them through your team. But VM’s are slow, large and you cannot access them if they are not running.
