Blog Post on Getting Started With Docker Containers For Data Scientists

Hey folks, one of the things I learned in this class is how to setup Docker containers so that I could move between my local computer and Amazon’s new P3’s more effectively without wasting money. I was inspired by all the helpful blog posts from other people and decided to write up a tutorial on Docker from a data scientist’s perspective.

Update: I also put up information regarding Nvidia-Docker and setting that up for GPU instances towards the end of the tutorial. As well as a shout out to this class as @jeremy has done an excellent job and hopefully I can help spread the word so more people can take Fast.AI.


This a great introduction to using docker, thanks for sharing!

Agreed - this is a very nice intro.
