Announcing the Publication of “Running Containers in Production for Dummies”

We’re excited to announce the first-edition publication of a new title designed to help you get going with your container project:

Sysdig containers for dummies

The Dummies series has been around for quite a while, and is generally regarded as a great source of getting started material. In a sign of how widely enterprises plan to adopt containers, the publishers agreed to work with Sysdig to publish this first of its kind resource.

We’re proud to say that Sysdig team members Jorge Salamero Sanz, Eric Carter, and Knox Anderson are the co-authors of this essential asset. Click on their names to see more of their posts on this blog.

This 44-Page book will provide you all the high level detail you need to understand your future pathway through the container adoption experience. You’ll cover orchestrators, CI/CD/CS, securing your containers, monitoring your containers, and other aspects of operations.

To cut to the chase, you can download the entire book, free of charge, here: Running Containers in Production for Dummies
