Cloud App Developer Learning Track

Course description


The primary goal of the class is to enable you understand Docker's role in helping your development as a dev/ops engineer and, if necessary, deploy your own Docker environment. 

Docker is software for creating, running and managing containerized applications. In this course, you will learn basic Docker background such as its history and architecture, the problems it solves, and the model that it uses to handle containerized deployments and scaling. Most importantly, you'll get ample practice using Docker within the class labs.

By the end of this class, you'll have Docker running on your own environment and be able to decide if it is the right development tool for you to use and explore in greater detail.
