Introduction and Basic Commands of Docker

Fun fact : Docker is written in Go language. The language is similar to C and has been the favorite of developers writing infrastructure software. Pick it up now !

This will show you several pieces of information about the OS.

Let us understand the output here, by paying attention to the columns:

The first column is NAME and it gives you the name of the Docker image. The second column is DESCRIPTION and it is obvious what that means. The next column is STARS and if you noticed the list of images that matched the search term Docker have been listed in the descending order of the number of people who have starred the project. This is a very useful indicator of the popularity/correctness of the Image. Often if confused among which Docker image to go with, I usually pick the one with the most STARS. The first column, to reiterate, was the NAME of the Docker image. This is a unique name and you must use this name for some of the commands given below.
