Real World Docker

Video description

Feeling uncertain about how to use Docker in the real world? This course will put you at ease. Beginning with single-app deployments and managing a database all the way to building a dynamic architecture with automated service discovery, the course gives examples and code on how to build and deploy your apps in a Docker environment.

To get the most out of the class, learners will need access to the toolsets listed in the bullets below, and have a basic understanding of Docker and basic Docker commands.

  • Gain hands-on experience using Docker in a variety of real-world situations
  • Learn to deploy a single-service monolithic application with continuous testing deployment
  • Review methods for deploying, backing up and restoring a Docker database
  • Understand how to build and secure a Docker "swarm" consisting of multiple web servers
  • Learn to dynamically route external traffic to Docker containers using automated service discovery
  • Required tools: Computer running Linux, OSX 10.8+, or 64-bit Windows 7+
  • Required computing infrastructure: Access to AWS, Digital Ocean, or Rackspace
