Lab

Key Takeaways

1 Learn what containers are and how they work

2 Understand the main use cases of containers

3 Understand how to containerize an app


Containers are the new unit of deployment. The reason is simple: containers are a very powerful tool that can streamline development and ops, save companies money by focusing on deploying a packaged unit, and reduce the friction in delivering software. However, the flip side is they’re a new paradigm to understand, many things are abstracted away, and they require apps to be built with a specific architecture to take full advantage of their features.

In this hands-on workshop, you will learn about Docker basic concepts, how to run containers, create your own images, interact with the "Docker Hub", and more.

Course outline:

  • What's Docker?
  • Running our first container
  • Introducing Docker Hub
  • Understanding Docker Images
  • Different types of containers
  • Building Images Interactively
  • Building Images with Dockerfile
  • Pushing and pulling images
  • Development workflow with Docker

Audience: Anyone wanting to learn about containers. Will look at things through a developers lens.
