Examine the evolution of virtualization technologies from bare metal, virtual machines, and containers and the tradeoffs between them.
Explores the three core Linux features that enable containers to function (cgroups, namespaces, and union filesystems), as well as the architecture of the Docker components.
Install and configure Docker Desktop
Use publicly available container images in your developer workflows and learn how about container data persistence.
Building out a realistic microservice application to containerize.
Write and optimize Dockerfiles and build container images for the components of the example web app.
Use container registries such as Dockerhub to share and distribute container images.
Use Docker and Docker Compose to run the containerized application from Module 5.
Learn best practices for container image and container runtime security.
Explore how to use Docker to interact with containers, container images, volumes, and networks.
Add tooling and configuration to enable improved developer experience when working with containers.
Deploy containerized applications to production using a variety of approaches.
Final words about the course.
Congratulations on completing the Docker and containers course!
I hope you feel prepared to incorporate containers into your software development and deployment processes and use the knowledge gained to improve your organization's software systems.
Here's a recap of what we've covered in this course:
As mentioned during the deployment section of the course, I filmed two additional videos, one covering deploying the sample application to https://railway.app and another deploying to Kubernetes running on Civo cloud.
These can be found at: https://links.devopsdirective.com/docker-gumroad
These are "pay what you want" with a minimum of $1 (required by Gumroad since the video files are above 250MB). If you got value from the course and want to pay more than the minimum that is great, but if you can't afford to do so, that's okay too!
