Overview of this book

No doubt Docker Containers are the future of highly-scalable software systems and have cost and runtime efficient supporting infrastructure. But learning it might look complex as it comes with many technicalities. This is where The Docker Workshop will help you. Through this workshop, you’ll quickly learn how to work with containers and Docker with the help of practical activities.? The workshop starts with Docker containers, enabling you to understand how it works. You’ll run third party Docker images and also create your own images using Dockerfiles and multi-stage Dockerfiles. Next, you’ll create environments for Docker images, and expedite your deployment and testing process with Continuous Integration. Moving ahead, you’ll tap into interesting topics and learn how to implement production-ready environments using Docker Swarm. You’ll also apply best practices to secure Docker images and to ensure that production environments are running at maximum capacity. Towards the end, you’ll gather skills to successfully move Docker from development to testing, and then into production. While doing so, you’ll learn how to troubleshoot issues, clear up resource bottlenecks and optimize the performance of services. By the end of this workshop, you’ll be able to utilize Docker containers in real-world use cases.

Storing and Publishing Your Docker Images

Since the early days of Docker's history, one of its main attractions has been a central website where users can download images, reuse and improve these images for their purposes, and reupload them to grant access to other users. Docker Hub has grown and although it has had some security issues, it is still usually the first place people will look when they need new images or resources for their projects.

As a public repository, Docker Hub is still one of the first places people go to research and use images needed to streamline or improve their new development project. It is also an important place for companies and developers to host their open-source images, available for the public to utilize. However, Docker Hub is not the only solution for you to store and distribute your Docker images.

For development teams, a public repository on Docker Hub, although accessible and highly available, may not be the best option. These days...
