In this post I show how to install Docker Desktop for Windows, including WSL 2, and explore the initial experience of running a container.
In this post, I describe how to install WSL 2 to serve as the backend for Docker Desktop for Windows. Previously I've always worked with Linux in a Virtual Machine using something like VMWare or Virtual Box, but I decided to give Docker Desktop a try, and was pleasantly surprised by the experience!
I'll start by describing how to install WSL 2 based on the install documents, then show how to install Docker Desktop. Finally, I show the the experience of running a container and how it looks in Docker Desktop.
The Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) is a way to run a full Linux environment on your Windows machine, without having to install a "heavier" virtual machine, such as Virtual Box, VM Ware, or Hyper-V. WSL 2 also provides a mechanism for running Docker (with Linux containers) on your Windows machine. We'll install it as a prerequisite for Docker Desktop for Windows.
Following the second video about Docker basics, in this video, I explain Docker architecture and explain the different building blocks of the docker engine; docker client, API, Docker Daemon. I also explain what a docker registry is and I finish the video with a demo explaining and illustrating how to use Docker hub.
Docker Architecture Overview & Docker Components. This ultimate guide revolves around the underlying technologies used by Docker Containers to provide effective containerisation services to its users. It explains the entire Docker architecture and its components using intuitive diagrams.
Welcome to this on Docker Tutorial for Beginners. In this video provides an Introduction on C++ development with Docker containers. So we will see How to ship C++ Programs in Docker.
“Docker: Understanding Docker Architecture and Components”, The First thing we are going to do is to run the “docker run hello-world” command. This command tries to find the “hello-world” image locally and if not found, it then downloads an image from the docker hub and runs the container out of this image.
This entry-level guide will tell you why and how to Dockerize your WordPress projects.
