How Developers Can Get Started with Python and Docker

Python started in 1991 with humble beginnings focusing on helping “automate the boring stuff.” But over the past few years, we’ve seen Python grow in popularity and become extremely useful not only for scripting but for building modern web applications, machine learning and data science. 

The TIOBE Index for February has Python ranked at number 3 on the list. Python has also been in the top 8 rank programming languages for the past 7 years. With such a popular and powerful programming language comes a vibrate and large community.

To that end, we are excited to announce that we are releasing a series of programming language-specific guides to help developers go from discovering the basics of Docker to delivering your images into a production environment and more.

The first in our series is a focus on the Python development ecosystem. We have created a series of tutorials, how-tos, and guides focused on the Python community with much more coming in the future. 

We are extremely excited to help Python developers become experts at developing and delivering the next generation of applications using the Docker platform. Below you will find a list of resources and our Python language-specific guide to help move you from understanding to application all the while using the language you love: Python.

As I mentioned at the beginning of this post, we are truly developer obsessed and we would love to hear your feedback. We hope that this upcoming Python series is helpful and stay tuned for more content! Please feel free to reach out to me personally either by email, Twitter or in our community slack channel.
