Tips and Best Practices
Use descriptive names for containers, images, and volumes.
Keep your Dockerfile and docker-compose.yml files in version control for easier management and collaboration.
Use environment variables in your Docker Compose files for dynamic configurations.
Regularly clean up unused containers, images, and volumes to free up disk space.
Explore Docker Hub and official repositories for pre-built images.
