The Docker and Kubernetes training will empower attendees to bring modern DevOps tooling and automation technologies into their organizations.
This course is designed to jumpstart your Docker and Kubernetes knowledge -- no prerequisite knowledge is required. Activities are lab-focused, with a dedicated online training platform. The course starts with an overview of the Docker technology, and the impacts on modern IT organizations and developer workflows. Strong emphasis is placed on hands-on activities -- attendees will gain a solid understanding of the technical underpinnings of the technology by running distributed applications. The second and third days focus on Developer and Operations workflows, including building Docker applications, debugging, and deploying applications to distributed clusters. The fourth day of training is an introduction to Kubernetes, focusing on architecture and application deployment.
