Interested in building, deploying and running containers at enterprise scale?
This Learning Path will get you started with building, deploying, and operating containers in production. First we introduce you to the basics building blocks, Docker containers and introduce to concepts such as Dockerfiles. Then the Learning Path the takes you through the entire process of container development and deployment - concluding with building, deploying, and testing containerised applications in a Kubernetes cluster.
- Learn the basic principles of building Docker containers and working with Dockerfiles
- Understand the benefits of using Docker for application development
- Learn how to package and run microservices as lightweight containers using Docker
- Understand the basic principles of deploying cloud native applications into Kubenetes
- Learn how to work with and configure many of the key Kubernetes cluster resources such as Pods, Deployments, Services etc.
- Learn how to manage deployments and Kubernetes cluster resources through their full lifecycle.
- Anyone interested in learning how to architect cloud native applications
- Anyone interested in using cloud native development tools and practices
- Anyone interested in containerisation
- Anyone interested in learning Kubernetes

Learning Path Steps
Learn how to implement software development, testing, and delivery using Docker with this Cloud Academy Lab.
Get started with Docker on Linux for AWS: Go from 0 to 60 in this lab from installing Docker to running your first app inside a container.
Use this glossary to overcome the initial Kubernetes jargon hurdle to review terms as they are encountered.
Create a Kubernetes cluster from scratch using kubeadm and perform several cluster management tasks including backups, restores, and upgrades in this Lab.
Detect, diagnose, and remedy a variety of Kubernetes failures at the network, node, control-plane, and application levels in this Lab.
