Docker - A Beginner’s Hands-On Guide

Video description

Docker is a set of platforms as service products that use OS-level virtualization to deliver software in packages called containers. The service has both free and premium tiers.

This course starts by explaining what Docker is and an overview of Docker. You will learn the basics of Docker such as image pull, run a container, stop containers, and delete images. You will also explore how to create your own Docker network as well as how to link containers to custom networks. Along with this, you will learn how to make a connection between containers running on different networks and how to delete the custom network. You will also be well versed in changing the permission of volume from read-write to read-only.

Furthermore, you will learn to clone a volume and mount it to another container. You will explore how to push images to our DockerHub account. You will learn to create your first Docker file and create multi-tier with docker-compose. Finally, you will understand how to use WordPress and MySQL with Docker Compose and how to work with the REST API of Docker Engine.
