Docker is an open platform for developers and system administrators to build, ship and run distributed applications. With Docker, IT organizations shrink application delivery from months to minutes, frictionlessly move workloads between data centers and the cloud and can achieve up to 20X greater efficiency in their use of computing resources. Inspired by an active community and by transparent, open source innovation, Docker containers have been downloaded more than 700 million times and Docker is used by millions of developers across thousands of the world’s most innovative organizations, including eBay, Baidu, the BBC, Goldman Sachs, Groupon, ING, Yelp, and Spotify. Docker’s rapid adoption has catalyzed an active ecosystem, resulting in more than 180,000 “Dockerized” applications, over 40 Docker-related startups and integration partnerships with AWS, Cloud Foundry, Google, IBM, Microsoft, OpenStack, Rackspace, Red Hat and VMware.

  1. Question for you. I'm running docker compose 3.9. If I do a netstat execution from my Windows machine and know that port 5859 is free to use, is there anyway from my docker compose file I can assign wph.local:5859 as a custom localhost url to my docker project?

    Does this get extremely complicated in setting up? or can my docker compose file handle this in setting it up?

  2. Docker is fantastic, but incredible complex to understand, specially docker-compose, you have to explicitly mention magics

  3. where is the source code for the example in this video showing how to link the services? I'm still having problems getting this to work and looking at the code might help.
