Docker is amazing technology, and evolving very rapidly as this is being written in July, 2014.
The author is tracking these changes and updating the ebook appropriately.
However, the Amazon Kindle version is lagging behind the other ebook versions in getting timely updates delivered. Please push those updates, Amazon!
"The Docker Book" does an incredible job of slowly building on previous examples to help you get comfortable with the core concepts of Docker. I expected the book to take me a while to get through, but I was pleasantly surprised when I finished the book in just two days, and that includes working through the examples.
I have already recommended this book to our Devops team at work, and will tell others who are struggling to implement Docker to give this book a read.
It takes you step by step through the Docker world with all its features and it's (mostly) usable on Windows as well (though using Linux means ALL examples are working out of the box). For Windows I had to consult a couple of online articles on how to modify command parameters (I found the git CLI that comes with git-scm on Windows to be the easiest to use).
Unlike most developer-focused books, this one has the advantage that ALL samples work! I used the latest Docker version at this time (Docker version 17.03.0-ce) and aside from Windows-related tweaking, everything else worked.
I also loved it that while the example are simple, they are still usable in real-life, replicate just about any stack with a variety of applications (Ruby, java, php, angular, etc), the sky is the limit. It's also very concise and it managed to explain things better for myself than a plethora of tutorials ever did.
Can't recommend it enough to beginners!
Sometimes when a technology is changing so fast like Docker, the books for it can quickly get outdated but currently this is not the case for this book as it refers to Docker 1.3 and it seems the book has had several updates.
The low price also made it a very easy decision to buy and one that i certainly didn't regret. I would highly recommend to anyone interested in Docker.
