This process is becoming more and more popular, due to its set of features and potential for easier, more valuable deployments. In this course we’ll go from creating a base docker container capable of running a simple Rails application, all the way to a deployment-ready solution using nginx for static content and a Postgres database.

  • Configure a database container to store data for the app.
  • Prepare your application container in order to connect to the database.
  • Use Nginx to configure a way of serving CSS and JavaScript assets.
