Wonderful introduction to Docker's purpose and concepts. Looking forward to possibly seeing a course on Code School expanding on this one!

I was struggling to understand dockers. This course allow me to have a good starting point. Recommended course for those who have no idea what docker is and how it works. It would be great if there are more advanced courses on docker and also a course for Docker for Windows.

This is a really good way to learn docker! I have read a short book on docker before (out in the sun and with a beer or two), but when stepping back to the computer in the evening I really couldnt do much. As always I like how codeschool combines videos and interactive coding. Actually writing the commands and seeing something happen helps a lot. The instructor is very good and easy to understand.
