What is Docker?
Docker is a platform that simplifies the application development process, providing an ecosystem for developers to build, share and run modern applications. It takes away repetitive configuration tasks and is designed for portability across different environments.
Who is this for?
Docker is dedicated to developers, engineers, and organizations aiming to enhance their application development pipeline. It provides consolidated, efficient toolsets to accelerate coding and deployment processes.
How does Docker work?
Docker uses containers to create isolated environments for applications, which helps in managing dependencies and ensuring consistency across environments. Users can build custom images, store and share them in registries, and run containers on various platforms.
How is Docker used?
Notable use cases for Docker involve:
- Application packaging and deployment
- Microservices development and orchestration
- Continuous integration/continuous deployment (CI/CD)
- Environment consistency and portability
