In recent years, few IT tools have been as disruptive or innovative as Docker. Lightweight and fast, the open-source Docker engine provides an environment to run your code as well as an efficient workflow to get the code from developer machines to the test environment, and rapidly into production. Docker streamlines deployment of your applications into isolated containers, allowing versatile new solutions across the entire IT value chain. This Docker training workshop is ideal for developers and operations staff who want to containerize and improve reliability throughout the entire software development lifecycle. To get the most out of the course, you should be familiar with some Linux basics, including package management, basic networking, and simple shell scripting.

  • This 3-day Docker Containerization training class is a continuous hands-on workshop which teaches you how to use Docker and the workloads for which it is best suited. From your clean new Docker install on the first day, you will work through continuous real-world use cases to learn pragmatic, immediately useful skills. Our real-world format gets you up and running as quickly as possible with the technology, and focuses on making sure you understand how to best integrate Docker into your workflow for maximum productivity as soon as you return to work.

Skills Gained

  • Rapidly deploy applications - By completely avoiding full machine and/or OS virtualization, containers vastly reduce application size and delivery time.
  • Develop for nearly universal portability - By bundling all application dependencies into one container.
  • Version control & reuse - Recursive reuse makes applications much more lightweight. Version control and rollback are easy.
  • Enjoy extremely lightweight, minimal overhead - Docker images are small. Delivery and deployment of new application containers are as fast as it gets.
  • Vastly simplify maintenance - Much less overhead and fewer dependencies mean far less maintenance.

Who Can Benefit

This workshop is ideal for developers and operations staff who want to containerize and improve reliability throughout the entire software development life cycle.

Prerequisites

To get the most out of the course, you should be familiar with some Linux basics, including package management, basic networking and simple shell scripting.

  • Additionally, although it is not mandatory, students who have completed the self-paced Fundamentals of DevOps eLearning course have found it very helpful when completing this course.

Lab access is dependent on the vendor and the type of training you sign up for. However, many of our top vendors will provide lab access to students to test and practice. The course description will specify lab access.

Will you customize the training for our company’s specific needs and goals?

We will work with you to identify training needs and areas of growth.  We offer a variety of training methods, such as private group training, on-site of your choice, and virtually. We provide courses and certifications that are aligned with your business goals.

How do I get started with certification?

Getting started on a certification pathway depends on your goals and the vendor you choose to get certified in.

Will I get access to content after I complete a course?

You will get access to the PDF of course books and guides, but access to the recording and slides will depend on the vendor and type of training you receive.

The platform is very intuitive and easy to navigate. Great tool for learning

I thought the course was informative and the tools to go over the material were very nice.

Although there seemed to be too many links for the course, everything worked smoothly.

Some Labs are very good but some steps it ask to update but its already updated, but overall its very good training.

This is my second course with ExitCertified. This course exceeded my expectations. The teacher was great and the class was fun.
