Description

Containers are a bit of an “it” thing in technology right now. The reason for this is simple: they’re a very powerful tool which can streamline your development and ops processes, save companies money, and make life for developers much easier. However, the flip side of this is that they’re a new paradigm to understand, and require that apps be built with a specific architecture to take full advantage of their features. In this course written and presented by Adrian Ryan,  you'll learn what containers are, the benefits of using them, and how to containerize an app. Let's get started!
