What is Docker

Docker is an open platform for developers and sysadmins to build, ship, and run distributed applications. Consisting of Docker Engine, a portable, lightweight runtime and packaging tool, and Docker Hub, a cloud service for sharing applications and automating workflows, Docker enables apps to be quickly assembled from components and eliminates the friction between development, QA, and production environments. As a result, IT can ship faster and run the same app, unchanged, on laptops, data center VMs, and any cloud.

Source: What is Docker

Where to start

  • Docker Curriculum: A comprehensive tutorial for getting started with Docker. Teaches how to use Docker and deploy dockerized apps on AWS with Elastic Beanstalk and Elastic Container Service.
  • Docker Documentation: the official documentation
  • Docker Training πŸ’²
  • Katacoda: Learn Docker using Interactive Browser-Based Labs
  • Learn Docker: step-by-step tutorial and more resources (video, articles, cheat sheets) by @dwyl
  • Play With Docker: PWD is a great way to get started with Docker from beginner to advanced users. Docker runs directly in your browser.
  • Play With Moby: PWM is a web based Moby playground which allows you to try different components of the platform in seconds. It gives you the experience of having a free Alpine Linux Virtual Machine in the cloud where you can build and run Moby projects and even create clusters to experiment.
  • Practical Introduction to Container Terminology The landscape for container technologies is larger than just docker. Without a good handle on the terminology, It can be difficult to grasp the key differences between docker and (pick your favorites, CRI-O, rkt, lxc/lxd) or understand what the Open Container Initiative is doing to standardize container technology.

Cheatsheets by

Where to start (Windows)


  • Moby = open source development
  • Docker CE = free product release based on Moby
  • Docker EE = commercial product release based on Docker CE.

Docker EE is on the same code base as Docker CE, so also built from Moby, with commercial components added, such as "docker data center / universal control plane"
