This week on The Web Platform Podcast, Erik Isaksen, Danny Blue, and Leon Revill talk with Mano Marks (@ManoMarks) all about Docker and how containerized deployments can help you from the time you start your web project all the way to the time you need it to scale up.

Mano Marks informs three primarily front end developers on the exciting ways your can use Docker, from simple push button server solutions to creating Quake...yes, Quake.
