Video I Found Useful: “Getting Started with Docker”

As I’ve been exploring more about Docker and containers over the past month or two, I’ve been watching MANY videos on YouTube. One of the “intro to Docker” ones that I quite liked was this one from Brad Traversy:

What I found useful was how he used the very practical example of setting up a small website using nginx. Very good use case, including the use of volumes to have content that can be re-used between containers. He also discusses how to use DockerHub to make your container image available to other systems.

His subsequent video about using Docker Compose was also useful.
