Creating an App on Fly

Fly allows you to deploy any kind of app as long as it is packaged in a Docker image. That also means you can just deploy a docker image and as it happens we have one ready to go in flyio/hellofly. We just need to create a local Dockerfile that includes it.

FROM flyio/hellofly:first

That's it. (We'll look at creating apps in different languages and other Docker-based deployments later.)
