Do you want to use Docker effectively?
Docker is a leading container technology. Learning with us how to use it effectively will boost your career a great deal.
The goal of this course is to give you practical knowledge about Docker usage and infrastructure. You will learn how to build and run your own Docker servers and images and how to build your own data center with Docker native clustering technology, Swarm.
This course also provides comprehensive knowledge about Docker. We not only show you how to issue commands but we also explain the inner workings of Docker and the logic behind all the parts. You will learn every necessary detail about this container platform.
Furthermore, as long as there is no major upgrade for Docker we will provide updates for the course.
Developers, infrastructure engineers, DevOps
Basic Linux and networking skills
VirtualBox or VMWare Player, internet connection
You will be able to deploy, run and manage Docker containers and build scalable infrastructure on private clouds.

Section 1 - Docker basics and installing Docker
You will learn what Docker is, how it is related to traditional virtualisation, what the elements of the Docker infarstructure are and how to install Docker on your own Linux server.
Section 2 - Working with containers
You will learn how to run and manage containers with Docker. Managing containers includes creating, starting and stopping them, grabbing the logs and watching the processes inside a container.
Section 3 - Managing Docker images
In this section you will learn how to pull images from the configured registry, modify the images and upload the modified image to the registry. The video also covers moving the images to other Docker hosts, backing up and restoring images.
Section 4 - Managing Docker Volumes
The section will cover the usage of persistent data stores in a Docker environment called volumes. You will learn the charasteristics of persistent data stores, such as the difference between internal and external volumes and how and when to use them.
Section 5 - Docker networking
Docker provides networking to the containers. In this section you will learn the basics of Docker networking as well as the multi-host networking of Docker. This covers the default Docker network stack and how it works on a single host. Also, how it works together with containers which provide network services such as a web server, web service or email services. You will also learn how to create a multi-host network and connect two or more containers.
Section 6 - Advanced Docker usage
You will learn how to create custom Docker images and deploy applications based on these images with multiple containers with only one command. Creating your images covers defining all the required parameters of a Dockerfile - which is used to create images - adding your own piece of code into the images, configuring the network connections and persistent data stores. The configuration of Docker Compose to start and stop multiplie containers in one step is covered as well.
Section 7 - Enterprise Docker usage
It is essential to learn the enterprise level features of Docker to successfully run it in a production environment. The enterprise level features include the ability to create a cluster of Docker hosts and manage the containers on them. That means deploying your applications on multiple hosts using Docker Swarm mode even if they consist of more than one container, using advanced networking configurations instead of the basics that are provided by Docker.
Bonus section 1 - Installing Docker on CentOS
You wil learn how to install Docker on CentOS/RedHat systems and to use LVM volumes to store your images and containers. Altough Ubuntu seems to be the most popular distro to run Docker containers nowdays, the CentOS and RHEL systems are quite popular as well.
Bonus section 2 - Docker security
In this section you will learn how to run Docker images in a secure way on Ubuntu and CentOS Linux. We will look at the similarities and differences between the security model of the distributions. We will also cover the standard Linux provided hardenings with capabilities and seccomp profiles. These hardenings will help you to run your containers in a more secure way and defend the different containers from each other and the Docker host itself.
