Level: 
TBD

When:

1:00pm - 4:00pm

Key takeaways

  • Basic understanding of what a container is, and what it can be used for
  • How to build and distribute Docker images

Prerequisites

A WiFi-enabled laptop with access to SSH. A basic knowledge of Linux would be advantage.

This course will get attendees jump-started with containers. The course will explain what containers are and the major use cases, with a focus on microservices. After an introductory talk, the majority of the course will be a series of instructor-led exercises designed to guide attendees through the basics of developing and deploying a container-based application.

Topics covered will include:

  • An overview of what containers are
  • The major use-cases for containers
  • How to run containers
  • How to build your own images
  • Working with Docker registries
  • Deploying a complete system
  • Data persistence (handling state with containers)
