Welcome to your first Docker coding Scenario!

Congrats! You've completed your first Docker scenario!

Don’t stop now! The next scenario will only take about 10 minutes to complete.

Docker Hello World

Step 1 of 2

Step 1 - Run Commands

Let's run some docker commands to get familiar with docker.


First, lets pull an example docker image:


docker pull hello-world:latest

Let's take a look at our docker images:

docker images | grep --color -E '^|hello-world'

Next lets run that docker image:

docker run hello-world:latest

The docker ps command will let us see our container:

docker ps

Where is it? We should have a container. Well, the docker ps command defaults to showing just running containers. So we need the -a flag:

docker ps -a

That's it for the first step, next let's build a custom docker image and run it.
