Docker for Developers Workshop
To best follow along in this class, you will need the following:
- Linux, OSX 10.10.3, or Windows 10 Pro
- Docker CE
- Docker Compose and Docker Machine
- Pre-downloaded Docker images
- Your favorite text editor or IDE
- Basic knowledge of a terminal for your OS
- Git repo located at https://github.com/learningcontainers/dockerfordevs
Installation of Docker is fairly simple. Head over to https://www.docker.com/products/docker, select your operating system, and follow the instructions. It is recommended to have the most up-to-date kernal for Linux, at least OSX 10.10.3 (Yosemite), or Windows 10 Pro.
You might be able to use the quick setup installation at https://get.docker.com/. Follow the directions there to download and run the setup script.
Windows 10 Pro
Unfortunately, Docker is only supported under Hyper-V, Microsoft's native virtualization layer. You will therefore require at least Windows 10 Pro, and there is not currently a workaround for this.
Docker does still make available Docker Toolbox, which can be usefulf or older versions of Windows and OSX. It may work, but I will be unable to directly help with some issues that arise because of it. If you cannot run Docker natively, then I would suggest installing a full Linux VM like Ubuntu and following along as if you were using Linux.
Download Docker Images
It is a fact of conferences that the wifi will fail, so I would suggest downloading the following images to use. Simply open the terminal of your choice (or Powershell, for Windows), and run the following commands:
docker pull php:cli
docker pull php:fpm
docker pull php:apache
docker pull composer/composer
docker pull nginx
docker pull mysql
docker pull ubuntu
docker pull haron/vim
We will be working a small application during the tutorial, and the images will be helpful.
Slides will be available after the workshop for reference and for those who are unable to follow along.
