Start course

This course is designed to give you a solid understanding of containers and how they are used in Azure DevOps. It begins by looking at creating deployable images through Docker containers, microservices, and at the various container-related services available in Azure, including Azure Container Instances, the Azure Kubernetes Service, the Azure Container Registry, Azure Service Fabric, and Azure App Service.

The course also looks at Dockerfile and Docker multi-stage builds before finishing with a hands-on demonstration that shows you how to create an Azure Container Registry.

Congratulations! You’ve come to the end of "Building Containers with Azure DevOps". Let’s review what you’ve learned!

We kicked things off by talking about ways to create deployable images. You learned about docker containers and their role in development. You also learned about microservices and where they fit in.

After discussing microservices, we looked at the different Azure container-related services. We talked about Azure Container Instances, the Azure Kubernetes Service, the Azure Container Registry, and Azure Service Fabric. We also touched on Azure App Service.

After finishing up with the different container-related services, you learned what a typical Dockerfile looks like.

Later on, you learned about Docker multi-stage builds. You learned what multi-stage builds are, and things to consider when working with multi-stage builds.

We wrapped up with a hands-on demonstration that showed you how to create an Azure Container Registry.

At this point, you should have a better understanding of containers and how they are used in Azure DevOps.

I should point out, before you go, that, in addition to completing courses like this one, you should always keep up with the latest features and services by reading Microsoft’s published documentation as well.

As always, thanks for watching, and happy learning!
