It's time to install Docker. I'll walk through the install on a Macbook Pro, but I will also include the instructions for a Windows installation which is very similar. Because Docker Containers use Linux kernels, using Docker with Mac or Linux is easiest and the best experience, but it works for Windows as well.

Installation for Mac

Prerequisites:

  • 2010 Mac or later
  • OS X 10.10.03 Yosemite or later

Steps:

  1. Go to www.docker.com
  2. Click Get Started
  3. Click Download for Mac
  4. Create a Docker account and login
    1. Please login to download (easier flow)
    2. Create account
    3. Verify email (redirects to download page)
  5. Click Get Docker
  6. Run the .dmg file that was downloaded
    1. May take some time. Feel free to pause the video until you're ready
  7. Install Docker and Start the Docker app
    1. Drag and drop the whale to install
    2. Open the app
      1. Approve permissions
    3. Login using the account you created
  8. Open Terminal
  9. Run docker version to check that it worked!

Installation for Windows

Prerequisites:

  • Windows 10, 64 bit
  • Virtualization is enabled in BIOS. Typically, virtualization is enabled by default. This is different from having Hyper-V enabled
  • At least 4GB of RAM

  3. Click Download for Windows
  4. Create a Docker account and login
