Docker in Action by Jeff Nickoloff

For some time I wanted to get a more thorough intro to Docker, and getting some sort of coherent thoughts - besides the obvious “read the docs” - is welcome.

I will skim over some of the background information, even though useful, and focus more on the overall commands and concepts, in some cases at least :)

docker help - always useful
docker run - start containers
docker stop <name/id> - stop container
- `-f` flag will send SIGKILL instead of SIGHUP - `docker rm <name/id>` - remove contaier from host - `docker commit -a <sign_author_string> -m <message>` to create a image from a modified container - docker tag can be used to assign tags to existing images - docker inspect image to find out more details about the image
other commands
