Sock Shop: A Microservices Demo Application

If you came by our booth at DockerCon in Seattle this year you’ll have seen “Sock Shop”, our microservices demo application. We originally designed it so we could demonstrate products like Weave Net and Scope – but additional...

Debugging is Easier with Docker for Mac and Weave

Debugging and testing containerized applications from a Mac can be fiddly, (because you’re running containers inside a Host, which itself is running inside the OS), especially if you have multiple containers using the same port or if a...
