Hi Paul,
Docker is free to run and you can install it on your Window, MacOS and Linux machine.

Thank you, @scooterphoenix . I tried it on windows and it got difficult to set up, which I then abandoned. It's much straight forward in setting it up in a Linux system. After creating a simple container, I just didn't know where or how to deploy. I will have to try it once again from scratch.

Sorry you had a bum time with Docker on Windows. Maybe we should have a container chat in one of the chat rooms. Once you create your app and create an image from it, you can share that image with others to build upon and use or you can deploy your image to AWS Fargate or if your app requires high availability, then some sort of container orchestration is what you'd look at, like EKS.
