+# Getting Start with Superset using Docker
+Docker is an easy way to get stated with Superset.
+## Initializing Database
+To initialize the database with a user and example charts, dashboards and datasets run:
+SUPERSET_LOAD_EXAMPLES=yes docker-compose run --rm superset ./
+This may take a minute.
+## Normal Operation
+To run the container, simply run:
+docker-compose up
+After several minutes for superset initialization to finish, you can open a browser and view
+to start your journey.
+## Developing
+While running, the container server will reload on modification of the superset python and
javascript source code.
+Don't forget to reload the page to take the new frontend into account though.
+## Production
+It is also possible to run Superset in non-development mode: in the `docker-compose.yml`
file remove
+the volumes needed for development and change the variable `SUPERSET_ENV` to `production`.
+## Resource Constraints
