Setting up Docker on OS X
Docker is an open source project that allows you to package an application and it’s dependencies into a deployable container. Docker containers are not virtual machines. Each container shares the operating system with the other containers. One of the benefits of using Docker is that a container can be run from your local development computer to Amazon’s EC2 Container Service (ECS).
When I first started my career, I sadly ship software. I spent four years working across multiple projects that never made it to production (at least while I was working on them). I was bored! In 2011, I was hired by IZEA to ship software! Over the past four years we have delivered three products, and today I am proud to launch the IZEA iOS app.
