Description

Interested in building, deploying and running containers at enterprise scale?

This Learning Path will get you started with engineering and operating containers in production like environments. First we introduce you to the basic building blocks - Docker containers - and then introduce you to concepts such as Dockerfiles. Within this Learning Path, you'll become familiar with the entire process of container development and deployment - concluding with building, deploying, and testing your own Kubernetes cluster hosted cloud native containerised application.

Learning Objectives

  • 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.

Intended Audience

  • 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
  • DevOps Practitioners

Prerequisites

A basic understanding of web based software development
