Docker Captain Bret Fisher shares one of his favorite Docker tips: Using docker stack deploy to quickly create an app across a Docker Swarm.

Docker is an open platform for developers and system administrators to build, ship and run distributed applications. With Docker, IT organizations shrink application delivery from months to minutes, frictionlessly move workloads between data centers and the cloud and can achieve up to 20X greater efficiency in their use of computing resources. Inspired by an active community and by transparent, open source innovation, Docker containers have been downloaded more than 700 million times and Docker is used by millions of developers across thousands of the world’s most innovative organizations, including eBay, Baidu, the BBC, Goldman Sachs, Groupon, ING, Yelp, and Spotify. Docker’s rapid adoption has catalyzed an active ecosystem, resulting in more than 180,000 “Dockerized” applications, over 40 Docker-related startups and integration partnerships with AWS, Cloud Foundry, Google, IBM, Microsoft, OpenStack, Rackspace, Red Hat and VMware.

I am really confused now. We're not using the 1.13 version numbers anymore.. now it's v17.03.0-ce.I am trying to figure out why almost everything i read on the internet, or watch on YouTube even though it's recent, being so outdated.

Thank you. I wish the "important" changes were somewhere right in their docs that stand out, not tucked away hidden our in places where it's not easily found.

1.13.1 is same as 17.03.0. The Docker cli/server changed to a new versioning scheme that was a better fit for how they release… and is now similar to Ubuntu and SaltStack in how versions/releases work. I've got a TL;DR of that change here: www.bretfisher.com/docker-version-name-change-highlights/

Which plugins are you using for your vim?

Many, as I use the spf13 distribution vim.spf13.com but I'm thinking of leaving it as no updates in a year on github.

Are those 2 redis instances having data replicated among them?

No, there are 2 for HA, but k/v data is temporary and just waiting for worker role to pick them up. In prod you'd likely need replication to guarantee zero data loss on way from voting web app to worker. App repo is here: github.com/docker/example-voting-app
