Did you know that the Docker daemon is no longer capable of creating containers!? It’s true. And it’s a good thing!
In fact, it’s so good that I’ve written an entire chapter on it in my Docker Deep Dive book.
OK, so….. I’m currently on holiday, so what better thing to do than write a new chapter for my ever-evolving Docker Deep Dive book 😀
While the kids are playing in the sand, I’m playing on my laptop. Yesterday I published an updated version of the book with a brand new chapter dedicated to how the Docker Engine works (it’s inserted at Chapter 5 if you’re interested).
Like I say at the start of the chapter… you don’t need to know any of this stuff if your goal in life is just to do basic work with Docker. But if you plan on mastering Docker…. well… you better know this stuff.
The chapter explains the roles of; the Docker daemon, containerd, runc, the OCI, and more.
The book is available in Kindle, paperback, and on Leanpub. If you buy the paperback version, you get the Kindle version for a couple of dollars. All owners of the Kindle and Leanpub versions automatically updates.
