Chapter 1, Docker Overview, discusses where Docker came from, and what it means to developers, operators, and enterprises.
Chapter 2, Building Container Images, looks at the various ways in which you can build your own container images.
Chapter 3, Storing and Distributing Images, looks at how we can share and distribute images, now that we know how to build them.
Chapter 4, Managing Containers, takes a deep dive into learning how to manage containers.
Chapter 5, Docker Compose, looks at Docker Compose—a tool that allows us to share applications comprising multiple containers.
Chapter 6, Windows Containers, explains that, traditionally, containers have been a Linux-based tool. Working with Docker, Microsoft has now introduced Windows containers. In this chapter, we will look at the differences between the two types of containers.
Chapter 7, Docker Machine, looks at Docker Machine, a tool that allows you to launch and manage Docker hosts on various platforms.
Chapter 8, Docker Swarm, discusses that we have been targeting single Docker hosts until this point. Docker Swarm is a clustering technology by Docker that allows you to run your containers across multiple hosts.
Chapter 9, Docker and Kubernetes, takes a look at Kubernetes. Like Docker Swarm, you can use Kubernetes to create and manage clusters that run your container-based applications.
Chapter 10, Running Docker in Public Clouds, looks at using the tools provided by Docker to launch a Docker Swarm cluster in Amazon Web Services, and also Microsoft Azure. We will then look at the container solutions offered by Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud.
Chapter 11, Portainer - A GUI for Docker, explains that most of our interaction with Docker has been on the command line. Here, we will take a look at Portainer, a tool that allows you to manage Docker resources from a web interface.
Chapter 12, Docker Security, takes a look at Docker security. We will cover everything from the Docker host, to how you launch your images, to where you get them from, and also the contents of your images.
Chapter 13, Docker Workflows, starts to put all the pieces together so that you can start using Docker in your production environments and feel comfortable doing so.
Chapter 14, Next Steps with Docker, looks not only at how you can contribute to Docker but also at the larger ecosystem that has sprung up to support container-based applications and deployments.
