This intensive 5 day hands-on course is designed to provide working developers, DevOps staff, and other technology professionals with a comprehensive treatment of Docker. Attendees will leave with a clear understanding of Docker and its place in the market; how containers are used in development, test and productions settings; container networking internals and multi-host networking; security, cgroups and namespaces; as well as experience with Docker API operations and distributed Docker configuration. During the course students will gain hands-on experience with the Docker command line, Dockerfiles and the Docker image creation process; the course covers Container operations in depth and introduces attendees to all of the docker command line commands, the entire range of Dockerfile instructions and gives students architectural insights into the Linux kernel technologies enabling Docker.
Discussion includes a look at the evolving microservice-based ecosystem and the relationship between Docker and the Open Container Initiative (OCI) standards. The architecture of Docker is examined at the runC, containerd and Engine levels. Each module concludes with a lab challenging attendees to experiment and explore, developing a deeper understanding of the way Docker works. The skills and knowledge developed in this course will be particularly useful to system designers and architects interested in leveraging the best features of containers and avoiding the pitfalls. Upon completion of the course attendees will have the skills and information necessary to effectively integrate Docker and containers into sophisticated enterprise environments, integrating Docker at every step of the CI/CD pipeline as appropriate.
