Docker is Made for Data Science
Docker is an open-source platform allowing developers to build, package, and distribute portable applications. It has become an essential data science tool to assist in the building of reproducible and scalable environments. Docker allows code and dependencies to be packaged in containers, which lets data scientists distribute their models across different platforms. This assists in both development and production, and works to prevent errors and inconsistencies that can arise from different versions of software or hardware configurations. Docker can also help teams collaborate effectively, by assuring a consistent environment across all developers and team members.
