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.

Preface

Introduction

In previous chapters, you learned how to write docker-compose files and explored the networking and storage of the Services. In this chapter, you will learn how to integrate the various microservices of an application and test it as a whole.

CI/CD stands for Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery. Sometimes, CD is used for Continuous Deployment as well. Deployment here means making an application publicly accessible from a specific URL through an automated pipeline workflow, while delivery means making the application ready to be deployed. In this chapter, we will focus on the concept of CI/CD.

This chapter discusses how Docker integrates into the CI/CD pipeline in step-by-step exercises. You will also learn how to install and run Jenkins as a Docker container. Jenkins is an open-source automation server. You can use it to build, test, deploy, and facilitate CI/CD by automating parts of software development. The installation of Jenkins is merely one Docker...
