I'm looking for instructions on how to set up a local development environment from scratch on a brand new Windows 10 machine using the latest image of this: https://hub.docker.com/r/aemdesign/aem. Do detailed instructions exist for a relatively newbie that includes step-by-step instructions, i.e., install Docker, install the latest Java JDK, what folders to install programs, etc.? I found several helpful articles, but they contain prerequisite assumptions with terms and concepts that I'm not quite familiar with... yet. Thanks for any help or guidance.

Containerised solutions create repeatable infrastructure. Having a container to bring up a consistent local instance is a great idea and the image you have selected is the right image for it. The image has a capability to spin a vanilla AEM instance and then install a set of packages in some path like google drive. You can follow the same route to put your own application code package and a slim content package into the instance. To use it, the steps for windows will be.

 

1. Install https://docs.docker.com/docker-for-windows/install-windows-home/ 

2. Checkout https://github.com/aem-design/docker-aem and read further to understand how it works. 

3. If you need a vanilla instance just run the commands mentioned

4. If you want to customise further, clone the repo and updates the scripts, create your own image and use it.
