WSL 2 is Microsoft’s second take on shipping a Linux Kernel with Windows that includes a full fledged virtual machine. It was only natural that Docker would embrace this change and ship a Docker Desktop for Windows version that runs on WSL 2. In this blog, I’ll show you an example of how to develop Docker-powered applications using the Docker Desktop WSL 2 Tech Preview.
This blog post will demonstrate first using the tooling to publish a simple ASP.NET Core API in an image to the Docker hub, and then creating a Linux virtual machine in Azure to host the API. It will also engage Docker Compose and Microsoft SQL Server for Linux in a Docker container, along with a Docker Volume for persistence. The goal is to create a simple test environment and a low-stress path to getting your first experience with publishing an app in Docker. As a developer who is often first in line to claim “I don’t do DevOps”, I was surprised at how simple it turned out to be to deploy the app I had created.
To showcase all of the capabilities of the platform and highlight what is new in this release, we invite you to join our 5-part webinar series to explore the technologies that make up Docker Enterprise 3.0. You’ll see several demos of the platform and gain a better understanding of how Docker can you help your organization.
We Celebrated the Launch of Docker Enterprise 3.0 and Docker 19.03 Last Week Last week, Docker Captain Bret Fisher hosted a 3-day Release Party for Docker 19.03 and Docker Enterprise 3.0. Captains and the Docker team demonstrated some of their favorite new features and answered live audience questions. Here are the highlights (You can check out the full release party here). Docker Desktop Enterprise To kick things off, Docker Product Manager Ben De St Paer-Gotch shared Docker Desktop Enterprise. Docker Desktop Enterprise ships with the Enterprise Engine and includes a number of features that makes enterprise development easier and more…
The Technical Preview of Docker Desktop for WSL 2 is now available!
It makes use of the new Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) version that Microsoft recently made available on Windows insider fast ring. It has allowed us to provide improvements to file system sharing, boot time and access to some new features for Docker Desktop users. Here are 5 things you can try today with the preview.
The popularity of microservices and the use of third-party services for non-business critical features has drastically increased the number of integrations that make up the modern application. All of these integration points require different layers of testing.
There’s a ton of info out there on using Node.js with Docker, but so much of it is years out of date, and I’m here to help you optimize your setups for Node.js 10+ and Docker 18.09+.
Application Templates enable developers to build modern applications using a library of predefined and organization-approved application and service templates, without requiring prior knowledge of Docker commands. By providing re-usable “scaffolding” for developing modern container-based applications, Application Templates accelerate developer onboarding and improve productivity.
