PacktPub Docker Cookbook

I am happy to announce that my book on Docker, Docker Cookbook ( got published last week.  I got introduced to the publisher through a tech friend of mine and I am thankful to him for sharing this opportunity with me. I started working on the book almost a year back.

Docker Cookbook

I was very new to Docker at that time but was co-organizing Docker meetup in Bangalore, India and learning from Docker community. The book covers concepts, managing Docker and images, Network and Data management for containers, Docker use-cases, Orchestration and Hosting platforms, Docker Performance and Security. I tried to put whatever I learned in last year or so. There are many more topics in wish-list. Hopefully I get the chance to cover them in second edition.. :).

I would like thank all the reviewers of the book, Scott Collier, Allan Espinosa, Julien Duponchelle and Vishnu Gopal  for giving their valuable time to review the content, giving suggestions and finding my mistakes.

It had been more work than expected. I spent many weekends, nights to work on it. There were few times when it felt that I won’t be able to pull it off but thankfully I did. I want to thank my family, friends and co-workers at office who supported me with this project. It was great fun to work on the book. During the process I learnt a lot and Docker community had been great help.

I hope the readers would find the useful and learn from it. I have setup a mailing list through I would share updates, earrta bout the book. More details about the book can be found here.

Lastly I would like to thank Arun Ravindran for allowing me re-using his book’s website template for my Docker Book.
