    Comments about oreilly Docker Cookbook:

    There was too little emphasis upon using Docker itself to support various computer usage tasks involving one or two containers.
    This kind of information is now stable enough for inclusion in a cookbook type book.

    On the other hand, the book devotes too much space to DevOps related information.
    This information:
    - Is not mature enough for inclusion in a book, as most of the tools in question are still under rapid development.
    - Is mostly not about Docker itself but about other tools in the Docker ecosystem.

    While a survey type article about the Docker ecosystem would be very helpful for DevOps people wishing to integrate Docker into their work practices, a cookbook is not the right format for such an article.

      Comments about oreilly Docker Cookbook:

      Docker is evolving quickly and its ecosystem is huge. Finding the right tools for the situation can be pretty difficult as there are multiple ways of setting up a cluster, building an overlay network, logging.

      What I really liked about this book is that it systematically proposes many solutions to a problem (e.g. cluster, network, image building), which is quite important in such a quickly moving ecosystem of tools.

      On top of this, the systematic use of Vagrant to spawn test environments makes this exploration and learning very easy.

          Comments about oreilly Docker Cookbook:

          I am not through the book yet but here is my early take on it. IT has saved me an enormous amount of time by keeping me on a viable path. The OpenStack/Docker documentation is pretty good, but there are a lot of ways for things to not work and require a lot of troubleshooting to move to the next step.

          This book has moved me past that with the 'Golden Path' recipes. From them I am able to get things running and branch out to the things I am targeting much faster and with much less effort and time spent.

          It's worth it for just that... and I am learning faster by having more rapid successes. The book was an early release, so some of the stuff was a little off, but it was corrected quickly.

          IF you are bootstrapping yourself on this technology ( and who isn't really...) then this is a faster path.
