Docker is a tool that is designed to benefit both developers and system administrators. For developers, it means they can develop applications without worrying about the system it will be running on. For system administrators, it gives them flexibility and reduces the number of systems required.

This video will teach you to leverage advanced-level Docker. It starts by introducing how Docker works the way it does, first scripting a layer in a Docker workflow—Dockerfile. Next, you will explore compose by writing a docker-compose.yml file for a social network app, and look at top-down approaches to building network topologies for our social network’s containers.

Then you will be familiarized with the swarm workflow, Kubernetes, and Google’s tool for setting up a managed cluster. You will learn how to set up Docker’s plugin infrastructure and use the customization options. By the end of this course, you will be able to successfully manage your Docker containers, with the help of minecraft server.

Style and Approach

This video gives you a fair idea in a step by step manner of what is involved in taking a complex application like Diaspora, and containerizing, deploying, scaling, and maintaining in a cloud provider like AWS. All the key concepts are explained details with the help of examples and demonstrations in every section.

  • Explore opportunities with Docker to achieve rapid application deployment, reliability, scalability and portability across machines and clouds
  • Learn to build and manage clusters using Swarm, Mesos, and Kubernetes
  • Customize and secure your Docker according to your business requirements
