Docker Spearheads OCI Release of v1.0 Runtime and Image Format Specifications

Today marks an important milestone for the Open Container Initiative (OCI) with the release of the OCI v1.0 runtime and image specifications – a journey that Docker has been central in driving and navigating over the last two years. It has been our goal to provide low-level standards as building blocks for the community, customers and the broader industry. To understand the significance of this milestone, let’s take a look at the history of Docker’s growth and progress in developing industry-standard container technologies. Learn More

The OCI Explained - Dubunking The Myths

With that in mind, let’s take a look at some of the myths that have arisen over the past two years:

  • Myth #1: The OCI is a replacement for Docker
  • Myth #2: Products and projects already are certified to the OCI specifications
  • Myth #3: Docker doesn’t support the OCI specifications work
  • Myth #4: The OCI specifications are about Linux containers
  • Myth #5: Docker was just one of many contributors to the OCI
  • Myth #6: CRI-O is an OCI project
  • Myth #7: The OCI specifications are now complete Learn More 

The Best Way to Learn Docker for Free: Play With Docker [PWD]

PWD is a Docker playground which allows users to run Docker commands in a matter of seconds. It gives the experience of having a free Alpine Linux Virtual Machine in browser, where you can build and run Docker containers and even create clusters in Docker Swarm Mode. Under the hood Docker-in-Docker (DinD) is used to give the effect of multiple VMs/PCs. In addition to the playground, PWD also includes a training site composed of a large set of Docker labs and quizzes from beginner to advanced level available at training.play-with-docker.com. Learn More

Docker on Windows Webinar Q&A

Recently I presented  Docker on Windows: from 101 to Modernizing .NET Apps, a live webinar on using Docker with Windows, and running .NET Framework apps in containers.  
I start with the basics of Windows Docker containers, showing how to you can run containers from public images, and write Dockerfiles to package your own apps to run in containers. Then I move onto Dockerizing a traditional ASP.NET WebForms app, showing you how to take existing apps and run them in Docker with no code changes, and then use the Docker platform to modernize the app – breaking features out of the monolithic codebase, running them in separate containers and using Docker to connect them. Learn More
