Demystifying Docker

10-14-20 Adam Simpson

Docker is an extremely valuable tool for packaging your application into a system that can be easily deployed. In this video, Adam will demonstrate how to package up an Apache server in Docker.

Docker is everywhere and yet it can be incredibly intimidating to engineers who are new to it. In this short video, I attempt to dispel some of the magic around Docker in an effort to get folks comfortable working with Dockerfiles and Docker concepts in general.

Instead of pulling down a ready-made image from Docker Hub, I start with a basic alpine image and build up the necessary software and configuration to run the application. Making a Docker image this way—from “scratch”—hopefully illuminates how Docker works behind the scenes and provides insight into issues folks may encounter at their work or in other projects.
