Yeah Docker's one of those things that seems like it's far away until one day you're in a situation that you can bridge the gap and suddenly it clicks. Or at least that's how it worked for a few of us on my team.

But I've been in DevOps for a while now so I think that helped a lot. I've used Puppet and other configuration management tools, so a Docker container is very analogous in that the Dockerfile is basically a script that does what you want (i.e. install some package, unzip this file, copy these source files in, run bower, etc), and you end up with an artifact that you can just feed whatever runtime config it needs and run.

It's pretty slick.
