As some of you are aware, I’m currently in the progress of building Scrapbook, an Interactive Learning Environment for Developers. The aim of Scrapbook has always been to make learning new technologies and frameworks easier and more interactive. By removing the need to download and configure the technologies you can jump straight into exploring while still having enough access and control to learn and break things in your own way.
Today Docker announced an easier way to try new bleeding edge features via an experimental binary.
“Docker’s experimental binary gives you access to bleeding edge features that are not in, and may never make it into, Docker’s official release. An experimental build allows users to try out features early and give feedback to the Docker maintainers” http://blog.docker.com/2015/06/experimental-binary/
However experimental binaries by their very nature have unknown side-effects.
To make it easier for people to use the Docker Experimental Binary we’ve created a Playground on Scrapbook. The playground has the latest version installed allowing you to explore the new features via your browser without having to download or install anything onto your local machine.
