No previous knowledge of Docker or containers is necessary to take this course.  We will teach you everything you need to know.

This course will cover Docker and containers, container registries, container orchestration, understand if this will work for the enterprise, and how to prepare yourself for it. You'll learn how this is going to impact you as an individual as well as the teams and organizations you work for. 

In this course you will learn about:

1) What containers are and why you should care

Thanks for looking at my courses. I am excited to bring you some awesome lessons I have learned along the way. I also love to talk about my favorite products that really help me stay ahead of the curve. I am an Architect, Developer, Product/Project Manger, and humble hustler focusing on building next generation application.

I am currently working as a Sr. Technical Cross Platform Program Manager at a Fortune 500 company building technology-driven marketing solutions with global reach and Netflix scale. I lead teams of developers to new heights by giving top of the line guidance on product deliverables, organizational techniques, and in general kicking butt. I hope you find my courses enjoyable and please contact me if you have any questions or would like any additional content covered that is not in one of the courses.

I am a PMP expert and PRINCE2 consultant.
