Unleash the Power of Docker

Welcome to the Docker DevOps course. Docker is not just a tool; it's a game-changer in the software deployment landscape. Unlike Virtual Machines, Docker operates with lightweight containers, offering a more resource-efficient solution. Docker has become the industry standard for software release, playing a crucial role in Continuous Integration and Continuous Deployment (CI/CD) pipelines. In this course, you will delve into:

  • Docker and Virtual Machines: Understand what Docker is and how it offers a more efficient alternative to traditional Virtual Machines.
  • Docker Images and Containers: Learn about the fundamental building blocks of Dockerized applications.
  • Docker Architecture: Get a grasp of the underlying structure and operations of Docker.
  • Volumes: Explore how Docker manages persistent data.
  • Building Docker Images: Gain hands-on experience in creating your own Docker Images.
  • Docker Compose: Discover how to manage multi-container applications.
  • Image Tagging and Versioning: Learn how to organize and trace your Docker Images effectively.
  • Networking: Understand how Docker containers interact with each other and the external world.
  • Debugging: Master essential techniques to troubleshoot your Docker containers.
  • Docker Security: Learn about securing your Docker containers and images.
  • Best Practices: Get acquainted with industry-standard practices for using Docker.

Are you ready to master the tool that has revolutionised how code is packaged, ensuring it works seamlessly anywhere? This course will equip you with the knowledge and skills to release software faster and more reliably. Let's get started!
