Containerization with Docker by Example

Build, Deploy, and Scale with Docker

Have you been struggling taking your application from development to production because your environments don't match? Do you want your applications to be self-contained, minimizing the software diversity needed on every server? Are you tired of the overhead necessary when configuring application servers?

Look no further because Docker has you covered!

The Docker runtime allows you to deploy applications as containers while having the same experience regardless of the host computer's configuration. Each container receives its own configuration which is self-contained and not dependent on the host, making it easy to take these "micro-services" anywhere at any time, without the headache of configuring servers.

Take the example of a backend API and a frontend application. Typically, these would be two services. With Docker, these two applications would be containerized and deployed with ease using the same steps in development as production.

In this course you'll learn how to use Docker through actual examples. You'll see how to create your own custom images, deploy those images as containers on any machine, and have them communicate to each other or the host machine. By the end of the course you'll be familiar enough with Docker to apply your knowledge towards your own projects.
