The 5 Philosophies Powering This Course



A Comprehensive Guide

From the history of containers, installation, configuration, basic concepts, advanced concepts (seccomp, Linux Capabilities, Linux Namespaces, Apparmor ..etc), to building, running and orchestrating Docker containers & services.


Use Case Driven

All of the provided examples are tested and taken from the real world. The goal of this course is not just providing a documentation to Docker but learning how to use Docker in complex real world use cases



Best Practices Driven

Trough this course you will be warned about the best practices and the things that you should & should not do. Painless Docker has a bottom-up approach to implementing best practices while learning.



"The art of simplicity is a puzzle of complexity" ~ Douglas Horton. Docker ecosystem may be complex but we tried to simply approach the whole bloc part by part without falling in useless complications.



Lean Approach

The book was written using a lean approach. The main idea behind this course is providing a content of good quality about Docker since readers have participated by sharing their suggestions to ameliorate the content before the last version has been released

What Readers Say

Content wise this is the best book I had come across.

I'v been using docker ecosystem for 1 year or so.

I had tried to refer to various documentations available and purchased courses on Udemy, Linux Foundation as well but none of them is as comprehensive ,hands-on, practical use-case driven which this book covers.

I will surely refer this to professionals working in area of SDN,NFV and using docker on a daily basis.
