Course Overview

This Docker Training class covers all the core features of Docker including: container creation and management, interacting with Docker hub, using Dockerfile to create and manage custom images, advanced Docker networking (how to safely expose container services to the world, and link containers), the use of Docker volumes to manage persistent data, and Docker Compose to build multi-container applications. Emphasis is placed on best practices and how to secure Docker installations and containers. The course culminates with comprehensive labs where students use Docker, Git, and a continuous integration server to automate the testing of containerized applications.
