Learning Docker is going to be important in the next few years, so that’s what we’re going to do. In this first episode, we’re going to get up and running with Docker so that we have a little exposure to images & containers.

With this short introduction into using Docker, we now have a stepping off point so that we can start using Docker for development and also for packaging and deploying code.
