Make your own SQL Server Docker Container

Recently I needed to have a SQL Server 2008 R2 instance to do some testing. I had to install it on my laptop, but I wasn’t a big fan of installing such an old version locally. A couple of weeks ago at Dataminds Connect  I saw Andrew Prusky building customized Docker containers. Because most of the public SQL Server Docker images are only for the most recent SQL Server versions, it seemed like a great opportunity to create my own SQL Server 2008 R2 Docker image.
