I work on Ubuntu:14.04 64bit desktop, the django app is based on 1.8.2, and the docker image I use is also Ubuntu:14.04

Install Docker

wget -qO- | sh

test it:

sudo docker run hello-world

An additional step:

sudo usermod -aG docker your_ubuntu_username

So you don't need the annoying sudo for docker anymore.

Question 1: should I include source code in docker?

Question 2: how will nginx and staticfiles works with docker?

Question 1: how to connect database if I don't want to hardcode the ip, username, password?
