A curated list of Docker resources and projects Inspired by @sindresorhus' awesome and improved by these amazing contributors.

It's now a GitHub project because it's considerably easier for other people to edit, fix and expand on Docker using GitHub. Just click to submit a pull request. If this list is not complete, you can contribute to make it so.

Please, help organize these resources so that they are easy to find and understand for new comers. See how to Contribute for tips!

The creators and maintainers of this list do not receive and should not receive any form of payment to accept a change made by any contributor. The goal of this repo is to index articles, learning materials and projects, not to advertise for profit. All pull requests are merged by default and removed if inappropriate or unavailable, or fixed when necessary.

What is Docker ?

Docker is an open platform for developers and sysadmins to build, ship, and run distributed applications. Consisting of Docker Engine, a portable, lightweight runtime and packaging tool, and Docker Hub, a cloud service for sharing applications and automating workflows, Docker enables apps to be quickly assembled from components and eliminates the friction between development, QA, and production environments. As a result, IT can ship faster and run the same app, unchanged, on laptops, data center VMs, and any cloud.
