What is Docker?

  1. A Docker container is a standard that describes the format of containers and provides a runtime for Docker containers.

  5. Apps run the same, regardless of where they're run
    1. Any machine
    2. No compatibility issues
    3. Predictable behavior
    4. Works with any language, any OS, any technology
