Node version 8.9.1, use Docker?

Mosh is recommending in the Node course to use version 8.9.1. Could I run a docker image with a tag of Node with version 8.9?

I’m trying this docker image ‘docker pull node:8.9-stretch’.

seems to work for the module. node version 8.9.4. npm version = 5.6.0.

close enough, I hope.
