Before we get started with Docker in Ubuntu or on Azure we need to install a few things locally, so we have a commandline tool we can use for interacting with both of these. This involves installing and configuring git on your local machine, setting up Cmder as our local git shell and getting the Docker binaries.

You can also setup a local Docker lab by using the newly released Docker Toolbox (Toolbox deprecates Boot2Docker), which includes the Docker Client, Machine, Kitematic (the Docker GUI) and VirtualBox. Full documentation for installing the Docker Toolbox on Windows is available on

You can’t perform that action at this time.
