About the Docker test

Developing applications is no longer as straightforward as writing code. The sophistication of modern applications requires different languages, frameworks, architectures, and interfaces for the different tools used at each stage of an app’s lifecycle. Using containers, Docker allows developers to isolate applications from their environment to simplify workflows, move faster, and collaborate better.

This Docker test evaluates candidates’ practical skills in Docker by assessing their skills in the three core areas of the software. The first area deals with managing installation, configuration, and storage; the second one with images; and the third one with network and security.

Candidates who perform well at this screening test have the ability to find the best solutions to problems by considering important parameters, such as simplicity, efficiency, maintainability, and alignment with best industry practices.

Review from G2

Any tool can have functions—bells and whistles. Not every tool comes armed with staff passionate about making the user experience positive.

The TestGorilla team only offers useful insights to user challenges, they engage in conversation.

For instance, I recently asked a question about a Python test I intended to implement. Instead of receiving “oh, that test would work perfectly for your solution,” or, “at this time we’re thinking about implementing a solution that may or may not…” I received a direct and straightforward answer with additional thoughts to help shape the solution.

I hope that TestGorilla realizes the value proposition in their work is not only the platform but the type of support that’s provided.

For a bit of context—I am a diversity recruiter trying to create a platform that removes bias from the hiring process and encourages the discovery of new and unseen talent.
