Learn Docker - .NET Core, Java, Node.JS, PHP or Python

Be ready to create and run your containerized application next week.

About the Book

You're a developer who knows nothing to Docker. Which is fine, except that you need to create and run your first containerized application using Docker.

Don't worry: I have you covered. I've been training hundreds of developers like you during 17 years, and converted my experience into this book. I know from experience teaching what takes more time to learn in Docker, and will spend time only where appropriate.

Plus this book is packed with exercises and samples where you run your own containers and create your own Docker images.

Read this book, and you can create and run your first containerized application using Docker within a week. Or your money back.

About the Author

Arnaud Weil
Arnaud Weil

Arnaud Weil is a born developer: when he was a kid he was controlling his electric train using an Atari ST and some self-made electronics, then as a teenager created and distributed worldwide one of the first Web browsers for some of the first pocket computers, when the Web was just beginning. In fact, he loves coding.

Turning a passion into a career, Arnaud has been coding all kinds of applications from factory tools to smartphone applications to house control solutions. His status as a freelancer allows him to help his clients with many different projects.

But what Arnaud enjoys most is helping other developers: that's why he teaches, speaks, and writes books.
