About the Book

Docker For Developers is designed for developers who are looking at Docker as a replacement for development environments like virtualization, or devops people who want to see how to take an exisitng application and integrate Docker into that workflow. This book covers not only how to work with Docker, but how to make Docker work with your application.

You will learn how to work with containers, what they are, and how they can help you as a developer.

You will learn how Docker can make it easier to build, test, and deploy distributed applications. By running Docker and seperating out the different concerns of your application you will have a more robust, scalable application.

You will learn how to use Docker to deploy your application and make it a part of your deployment strategy, helping not only ensure your environments are the same but also making it easier to package and deliver.
