I have been looking forward to test driving Microsoft SQLServer R Services.   However, I don’t run the Windows Operating System on any of my machines.  I do use Docker regularly and so was interested to hear about a new version of SQLServer that runs on Linux that is now available as a Docker container.  Although I have yet to test drive R on SQLServer, I was able to run the image and created a short YouTube screencast demonstrating how SQLServer can be run in Docker – specifically on a Mac.  There were a couple of somewhat cryptic steps along the way, so I thought others might be interested in a simple “Hello World” type of show and tell to clarify steps involved.

So have a look to get an idea of how simple it is to get “up and running” with a SQLServer database using Docker.
