Docker for Developers

About the Book

This preliminary version of the book focuses on the basic knowledge of Docker. It starts by briefly explaining the infrastructure of the solution, through its architecture, installation, basic commands, understanding and construction of images and containers, use of advanced commands, even manipulation of cloud environments.

We have taken care not to deepen our understanding of Docker infrastructure issues, as many of them should not be a priority for developers who are starting to use Docker for their core business.

This book is a translation into English of Docker para desenvolvedores which was originally written in Portuguese (Brazilian).
