Once you are set up, pulling the RHSCL Docker images is very simple…for example, you can fetch the Python 3.4 image as follows: Continue reading You’ll see considerable additions to support multiple language versions.For example, it includes updates to “Python 2.7, continues to support Python 3.3 and also adds Python 3.4 – providing a fully-supported language library and blending developer agility with production stability.” “Red Hat Software Collections By Scott Merrill “When I started working at Cover My Meds, I inherited a server infrastructure that made sense for where the company was at the time.
There were only a handful of production servers running a small collection of applications.The majority of applications were Ruby, and Ruby was installed onto the servers using RVM, the Ruby Version Manager.“We had a number of PHP applications running on different versions of that language, including a custom RPM for a specific version of PHP for one app.On developers.you can find short, focused guides to help you start developing with a number of Red Hat technologies.With the recent release of Red Hat Software Collections (RHSCL) 2.2, a number of Get Started guides have been updated to use the newest software collections, such as 4.4, Python 3.5, and Ruby 2.3.
These guides give you the steps you need to install the software and get to a simple “Hello, World” in a few minutes.
The guides include a few additional package management examples to help you go farther. Developers can get a no-cost Red Hat Enterprise Linux Developer Suite subscription for development purposes by registering and downloading through We recommend you follow our Get Started Guide which covers downloading and installing Red Hat Enterprise Linux on a physical system or virtual machine (VM) using your choice of Virtual Box, VMware, Microsoft Hyper-V, or Linux KVM/Libvirt.

To try these using a traditional I’m very happy to announce that Docker images based on collections from Red Hat Software Collections (RHSCL) 2.0 are in beta testing.
The images are available from the Red Hat Container Registry, and we’ve got the set of collections for language, databases and web servers covered – a complete list is below.
If you’ve not tried out the Docker package from RHEL7 Extras, you need to enable the Extras channel, install the docker page, and start the service; an extended guide for RHEL Docker is available here.
