In this chapter, we walked through Docker from the internals to the command-line interface to operate a Docker host. Now, we have enough knowledge to understand the consequences and benefits of running Docker in production. We have not looked into how to develop Docker plugins as well as different storage drivers, as unfortunately, we have a limited amount of space in this book to introduce the most interesting concepts, but we have dived deep enough into Docker to be able to learn more from the resources (official documentation, videos, and so on) available to us on the Internet.

In the next chapter, we will have a look on how to automate tasks around our software: running tests, building images and many other tasks that shouldn't be done manually. This automation is called continuous integration because allows our team to integrate new features on a seamless way.
