Look inside
Go from zero to production readiness with Docker in 22 bite-sized lessons! Learn Docker in a Month of Lunches is an accessible task-focused guide to Docker on Linux, Windows, or Mac systems. In it, you’ll learn practical Docker skills to help you tackle the challenges of modern IT, from cloud migration and microservices to handling legacy systems. There’s no excessive theory or niche-use cases—just a quick-and-easy guide to the essentials of Docker you’ll use every day.

about the technology

The idea behind Docker is simple: package applica­tions in lightweight virtual containers that can be easily installed. The results of this simple idea are huge! Docker makes it possible to manage applications without creating custom infrastructures. Free, open source, and battle-tested, Docker has quickly become must-know technology for developers and administrators.

about the book

Follow­ing a learning path perfected by author Elton Stoneman, you’ll run containers by chapter 2 and package applications by chapter 3.
