About this course
Docker transforms the way you build and run software. But getting from an introductory tutorial to using Docker in the real world isn’t easy. This course will help you get through the common pitfalls, problems and best practices for using Docker professionally.
This course is designed to get you from “I’ve done the Docker hello world tutorial” to “I know how to use Docker effectively”. It covers those things you’d normally only be able to pick up from many hours of trial and error in trying to get your containers to work in a production environment.
Things it will cover:
- Using docker-compose for local development, with multiple tiers
- Error handling, logging and debugging in containers (k8s readiness)
- Exposing application metrics for Prometheus
- Building containers from scratch
- Controlling processes in containers
- Building your software in containers
You’ve read some basic Docker tutorials, have Docker installed on your laptop and can do basic things, like pulling a public container and starting / stopping a container on your own machine.
