Course Details

Docker can revolutionise the development and deployment of your software projects.

Despite the benefits, Docker is often shunned by developers. It looks complex. Terminology can be impenetrable. Tutorials never explain how to use Docker during development.

It doesn’t need to be this way. This course demonstrates the core concepts and explains how to integrate Docker into new or existing development projects. You will quickly learn what Docker can do, how it works, and best-practice techniques for your team.

This course is ideal for Developers, DevOps professionals, and IT managers who want to improve their application development and deployment processes. The course specifically refers to web technologies, but the concepts can be applied to any stack.
