If you plan on following along you should have installed Docker and it should be running on your computer. Make sure you’ve created a free account on Docker and signed into it with docker login from your command line.

A quick call to docker run alpine echo 'hi there' should verify that the engine is up and running by downloading the alpine linux container and running a simple echo command.

On Windows, you will need to run Linux containers for the seminar, and this can be set by going into your docker control panel and selecting Linux images. Note that your existing images will be purged and Docker will restart.


Download the exercises from this link and expand them somewhere. Open that directory with your favorite text editor.

About Ken Rimple:

Ken almost started coding at an early age when he used a battery, two wires and an old flashcube to make a flashlight (those in the other room saw a blinding flash, then heard screams of agony). Dodging this early accident, he never stops learning how to break things. He is Chariot’s Training Services director, and writes and teaches courses focusing on Single Page JavaScript application platforms such as React and Angular. He also teaches/works with Spring, Java and Maven, among other technologies, has amassed 10 years of podcast episodes at the Chariot Solutions TechCast, writes tutorials, and speaks about JavaScript development at conferences. He is the co-author of Spring Roo in Action from Manning. He loves photography and music, plays guitar in a rock and roll band, and lives alone with four kids, a wife, two dogs and his tinnitus.
