Question

What is the best way to about building a docker image for my application? I have Docker installed and running on Mac OS and am using the standard workspace environment for .

Background

I am new to Docker as well as Go. I am decently versed in the language now and have built a REST API that I wish to containerize and deploy to AWS. I have never used Docker before, and am just learning the ropes now.

My app uses the Go standard libraries + https://github.com/gorilla/mux.

I will be deploying this container on an Amazon EC2 instance. I know I don’t need Docker but I want to learn how to use it with Go as I like the idea of being able to use an orchestration system in the future.

Thanks in advance!
