As many of you have noticed I’ve been neglecting the blog for past few months. The main reason for this is that the majority of my free time was being spent generating content for a new book. I’m pleased to announce that the book, Docker Networking Cookbook, has now been released!
Here’s a brief description of the book…
“Networking functionality in Docker has changed considerably since its first release, evolving to offer a rich set of built-in networking features, as well as an extensible plugin model allowing for a wide variety of networking functionality. This book explores Docker networking capabilities from end to end. Begin by examining the building blocks used by Docker to implement fundamental containing networking before learning how to consume built-in networking constructs as well as custom networks you create on your own. Next, explore common third-party networking plugins, including detailed information on how these plugins inter-operate with the Docker engine. Consider available options for securing container networks, as well as a process for troubleshooting container connectivity. Finally, examine advanced Docker networking functions and their relevant use cases, tying together everything you need to succeed with your own projects.”
The book is available from Packt and I believe Amazon has it as well. If you happen to buy a copy I would greatly appreciate it if you would send me any and all feedback you have. This is my first attempt at writing a book so any feedback and critiques you can share would be really great.
A big thank you to all of the folks at Packt that made this possible and worked with me through the editing and publishing process. I’d also like to thank the technical reviewer Francisco Souza for his review.
Now that the book is published I look forward to spending my free time blogging again. Thanks for hanging in there!
