Last weekend was the first time I used Docker. 🐳

For me, it was hard to see the value it delivers. Most of the reasons for using Docker sounded vague to me. πŸ€” Also, most of the benefits could be solved in other ways.

When it really connected for me, was when I compared Docker with NuGet. πŸ”—

NuGet is a way to share and consume code. You put your code in a package and describe its dependencies. Then you add the package to a central repository where everyone can download and use it. πŸ“¦

Docker does the same thing but for your whole app. You put your app in an image and describe its dependencies, like the environment and ports. Then you add the image to a central repository where everyone can download and run it. πŸš€

Which value do you see in Docker? πŸ‘‡
