The purpose of the Katacoda Ubuntu Playground is to provide a safe place to learn and experiment.
VS Code Integration
Katacoda has integrated a full IDE experience built on top of Visual Studio Code.
Weave Scope Integration
Katacoda has integrated Weave Scope, a product to visualise the processes and containers running on top of a host. This provides a visual insight into what's running and how they are connected.
The Ubuntu environment has Docker installed.
Find out the version with
docker version or start containers such as
docker run -d redis
You can see the running containers at
docker ps or via the Weave Scope integration.
