In a way this is a “Hello World” of sorts. But if you have spent any time with integrating a new technology into your stack you might have had some issues doing so. That is to be expected. So here are some basic helpful tips I have found so far as I’m working with Docker and learning it as I go.

  1. Docker-Compose is easier
  2. Docker on Linux is cleaner and just works better
  3. You can make each container like a node on a virtual private netowork or a combined network (still working on this)
  4. r/docker (Reddit) is very helpful
  5. Looking at existing projects docker-compose.yml will teach you a lot

I know this is not much in the way of helpful right now. But more is to come.
