Docker is an open source project that automates the deployment of applications using containers, providing an additional layer of abstraction and automation on top of Linux.

This playground provides a personalised sandboxed environment for you to learn and explore Docker.

Playgrounds give you a configured environment to start playing and exploring using an unstructured learning approach.

Playgrounds are great for experimenting and trying samples. To learn more about the technology then start with one of the Katacoda community labs
