Examples of what readers thought about our courses


Content wise this is the best book I had come across.

I've been using docker ecosystem for 1 year or so.

I had tried to refer to various documentations available and purchased courses on Udemy, Linux Foundation as well but none of them is as comprehensive ,hands-on, practical use-case driven which this book covers.

I will surely refer this to professionals working in area of SDN,NFV and using docker on a daily basis.


I like the video tutorials, much practical, I recommend it to avid self-learners!


Simple, no BS, and yet effective. Highly recommended. Look forward to your new course.


Painless Docker is great. It's an industry standard. I learned Docker from there. Though I watched so many videos about Docker but I get to know how in DevOps it's being used in terms of debugging, monitoring, security from Painless Docker. Thanks for this.
