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.
As an IT manager I had been hearing all the buzz about Docker and thought it would be a good idea for me to sharpen my skills on this new technology.
After reading the first couple of pages on my Kindle Fire I found it necessary to download the Kindle eReader to my PC so I could follow along on my computer.
One thing you will find out very quickly is The Docker Book is a how-to guide and therefore is best read while following along on the CLI as you read…
My first crack at Docker was Boot2Docker for Windows but after running into a few gotchas I opted to jump on EC2 and deploy an Ubuntu VM and follow James along step by step. Before long I had a WordPress website up and running on Docker.
The only challenge I did have with the book was James was trying to offer so many options for installing Docker that it did get confusing, especially when I was trying to track down the right command to figure something out.
Other than that I really enjoyed The Docker Book and even took time to document my Docker adventures on my blog.
If you have experience with Vagrant before, you will find Docker concepts quite familiar. Docker is a very important tool for DevOps engineering as developers can take more ownership from coding to actual deployment by shipping containers. Keep in mind though that Docker is no magic pill that developers can fantasize about merely deploying Docker containers in production environment and all things just run smoothly! Lots of configuration and monitoring still need to be in place but Docker certainly helps moving code to production a lot smoother.
I also found github docker cheat-sheet guide to be quite handy when getting familiarized with the Docker commands. Hope you enjoy the book as much as I do.
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.
