Containers have become the preferred method for packaging and deploying applications in modern software development. Among container platforms, Docker has emerged as the most popular choice for building and managing these containers. Before we can run an application as a container using Docker, we must first build a Docker image.
Learning to properly tag Docker images in a production environment is crucial. Meaningful and consistent image tags not only help users easily identify and select the appropriate image versions for their needs but also enhances clarity and streamlines workflows within the team. In this blog post, we’ll learn why
Docker is a widely used containerization platform that enables developers to run and manage applications inside containers. One of the key components of Docker is the Docker image, which acts as a blueprint for creating containers. Essentially, a Docker image is a static file that contains everything needed to run
A Docker image is a static file that contains everything needed to run an application, including the application code, libraries, dependencies, and the runtime environment. In this blog post, we’ll learn how to remove unused and dangling Docker images. But first, let’s understand what they are. What Is
Docker is a platform that helps run applications inside containers. One of its powerful features is that you can create custom Docker images from containers. Now, you might be wondering, why bother creating an image from a container when you can just use Dockerfiles? Well, one important reason is when
Have you ever struggled to get your application to run smoothly across different environments, from your local laptop to a production server? It's a common challenge in software development. Fortunately, there’s a solution to this challenge — containerization. With containerization, you can package your application and all its dependencies into
