Docker is an awesome and powerful tool for developing and deploying your apps. According to Docker official website, Docker is

Docker is an open platform for developers and sysadmins to build, ship, and run distributed applications

If you ask me to tell you what docker is I will say, It provides a linux container based virtual environment to work in your local dev machine and versioning your virtual environment as git. Like github, docker has dockerhub where you can push your virtual environment(containers) packaged in an image. Isn’t it AWESOME..!! 😉

In this post I just describe how to install docker in Ubuntu. I believe we should keep up to date and only use the latest version of docker. To install docker run the following command in your terminal.

wget -qO- https://get.docker.com/ | sh  

Thats it, docker script will do all for you. You must have root access or have to be a sudo user to install docker. If you don’t want to use docker client with sudo you need to run the following command for it.

sudo usermod -aG docker <your-username>  

I promise, I will return with more tutorials on Docker soon. Till then take care, sayonara!!
