#4 - Docker Essentials (the Book) is READY (and what I learned about docker build recently)

In this episode, I'm SUPER excited to share with you that Docker Essentials, the book that I've been working on for many months is finally READY! I'm also keen to share with you what I've learned about the docker build command, recently, too!

It sure feels like a lifetime since I began planning out Docker Essentials all those months ago. But it's ready. So, I feel that it's only fair to talk about it, given the number of hours that have gone in to create it. If you haven't already, grab your copy today and get in to the fun that is Docker!

But it's not all self-promotion in this episode. I also share a good chunk about what I've been learning about the docker build command. Most importantly how, since Docker Engine 18.09, with some restrictions, it can send an entire context to a remote Docker daemon. 

Because of that, you don't have to sync or copy files to the remote host using tools such as sftp, rsync over SSH, a Samba or NTFS share, or any other kind of tool Docker does it all for you. What's not to love about the simplicity that one, small command gives you?! So if you're new to the command or don't know that much about it, this episode is for you.

Grab your favourite beverage, settle in, and let's talk Docker!
