Docker for Developers

Who am I

Started a CS degree

dropped out because I hated programming

Became a Systems Administrator

The problem

For each project / client

We need our own version of the backend

Node.js v 4.5.0

Node.js v 6.5.0

Node.js v 0.10.0

<--- Teammate A

<--- Teammate B

Teammate C --->

What do we need?

Like a VM but...








Functional Programming for devops

Setting up a Node.js environment with Docker


Install docker

Internet connection (for installing images)


docker pull

docker run (with some options)

Developer environment for Node.js

> $ docker run -i -t --name node_hello_world -p 3000:3000 -v $(pwd):/data node:6.5.0 /bin/bash                                                                                                                            ⬡ 6.5.0 [±master ●]

Let's automate it!

We need to create a Dockerfile

FROM node:6.5.0
MAINTAINER Brooks Patton
RUN npm install -g express-generator
CMD /bin/bash
VOLUME /data

docker build -t brookzerker/node_hello_world .

> $ docker images                                                                                                                                                                                                         ⬡ 6.5.0 [±master ●]

So you want a database?

Creating a DB container

> $ docker run --name mongodb -d mongo:3.2.9                                                                                                                                                            ⬡ 6.5.0 [±master ●]

> $ docker ps

Lets create a network

Docker custom network



docker network create demo

Add the containers to the network

docker network connect demo mongodb

docker network connect demo node_hello_world

root@a60f54dd82a4:/data# ping mongodb
PING mongodb ( 56 data bytes
64 bytes from icmp_seq=0 ttl=64 time=0.097 ms
64 bytes from icmp_seq=1 ttl=64 time=0.129 ms
^C--- mongodb ping statistics ---
2 packets transmitted, 2 packets received, 0% packet loss
round-trip min/avg/max/stddev = 0.097/0.113/0.129/0.000 ms
