I wrote a book on Docker and made it open-source

Although The Docker Handbook started its life as a freeCodeCamp article, I have turned it into a GitBook hosted book this year.

The previously released version on FCC garnered quite a lot of attention and I'm hoping that the new version will too.

The book can be found on [https://docker.farhan.info](https://docker.farhan.info)

C&C is welcomed 😃

  1. This is really great work!

    Thank you for giving so much to the community, it means a world to people just getting started, and more veteran folks.

    Keep up the great work.

  2. OP is my colleague and we work together. I can vouch this is a great starting guide for anybody who wants to try it out!

  3. Just wanted to say thanks for this! Been messing around setting up a homelab and have been trying Docker along the way. It helped clear a few things up and bridge the knowledge gap between the blogs posts I’ve read and the official documentation.

  4. Hey OP! I was just looking for something like this! You definitely became an angel for me now lol.

    This is super dumb, I know, but is there a right/common order in the sense of:

    Start and bud a project > “Put it” inside a container.


    start the container > then build the project inside of it.

    I am not sure what should come first or what is the common practice in companies.

    Thank you again!!

  5. I am all ready familiar with docker and containerized orchestration, just want to give you a huge kudos for making this an open source. Great job man!

  6. Started my docker journey yesterday. Joined this sub. Then found this. You, Sir… you are a legend. Thank you for this!!
