Hello everyone,

I wanted to share a new video that I recently created geared towards beginners that walks you through Docker from scratch. I start the video with a quick explanation of VMs vs. Docker, then we walk through creating a simple PHP file and using a Docker image that contains Apache to host it.

Several items that I wanted to call out in this videos are:

  • Docker runs everywhere (Mac, Linux, and Windows)
  • No cost to you
  • You can get started with just a couple of commands
  • There are prebuilt images on DockerHub that you can take advantage of
  • There are endless possibilities once you get the basics down

I have created a video to show you all of this awesome stuff together!
