Containerisation has revolutionised the way organisations build, deploy, and operate solutions in the cloud and on-premise. Docker knowledge has become indispensable, and Kubernetes has quickly emerged as the de-facto standard way to manage and orchestrate Docker containers.

This Docker and Kubernetes Development training course provides a thorough grounding in both Docker and Kubernetes. We explain how to create lean and mean containers and how to ensure they operate in a resilient and responsive fashion. We explain how to enforce best practices by applying the principles laid out in the Twelve Factor App methodology.

 

What you'll learn

  • Understand Docker images and containers
  • Create lean and mean Docker images
  • Use Kubernetes to orchestrate Docker containers
  • Adopt best practices as described by the Twelve Factor App methodology

“Given the breadth of the course, I think it was very well structured and organised, I got a lot
out of it.”     

 

JVM Tuning - Bespoke Course

Live Online - May 2020

 

“This was an excellent course and was lots of fun to attend. Instructor started with basic intro to
containerization, then explained Kubernetes and the different components (Container
engine, orchestrator, control plane) which all made sense because of the containerization
intro. The parts of the course layered on top of one another to give a good understanding of
Kubernetes.”
