Mastering Docker

Master the art of containerizing your applications using Docker, enhancing the software development process.

Course Description

Docker is a tool that is designed to benefit both developers and system administrators. For developers, it means they can develop applications without worrying about the system it will be running on. For system administrators, it gives them flexibility and reduces the number of systems required.

This video will teach you to leverage advanced-level Docker. It starts by introducing how Docker works the way it does, first scripting a layer in a Docker workflow—Dockerfile. Next, you will explore compose by writing a docker-compose.yml file for a social network app, and look at top-down approaches to building network topologies for our social network’s containers.

Then you will be familiarized with the swarm workflow, Kubernetes, and Google’s tool for setting up a managed cluster. You will learn how to set up Docker’s plugin infrastructure and use the customization options. By the end of this course, you will be able to successfully manage your Docker containers, with the help of minecraft server.
