Containerization with Docker by Example
What you'll learn
- Students will be able to deploy Docker containers
- Students will be able to create custom Docker images
- Students will be able to interact with containers from other containers or the host machine
- You must have Docker installed on your server or computer
- You must have at least a little familiarity with a command line
Have you been struggling taking your application from development to production because your environments don't match? Do you want your applications to be self-contained, minimizing the software diversity needed on every server? Are you tired of the overhead necessary when configuring application servers?
Look no further because Docker has you covered!
The Docker runtime allows you to deploy applications as containers while having the same experience regardless of the host computer's configuration. Each container receives its own configuration which is self-contained and not dependent on the host, making it easy to take these "micro-services" anywhere at any time, without the headache of configuring servers.
Take the example of a backend API and a frontend application. Typically, these would be two services. With Docker, these two applications would be containerized and deployed with ease using the same steps in development as production.
In this course you'll learn how to use Docker through actual examples. You'll see how to create your own custom images, deploy those images as containers on any machine, and have them communicate to each other or the host machine. By the end of the course you'll be familiar enough with Docker to apply your knowledge towards your own projects.
Who this course is for:
- Anyone who wants to get started with Docker
- Anyone interested in micro-services and containers
