android app with docker


Imagine you have a set of servers, and you have various item to build, you would prefer to have the servers the flexibility of building anything instead of being set to specific environment and build a single thing.

Docker provides such flexibility by setting the environment within the container, so that it could be deployed in any server to build a specific item. Different containers could be deployed on the same at different time to build its respective item.

Setting up the environment is much more easier, one just need to set to one image, and could be deployed to any server.
