Docker is a portable container format that allows you to run code anywhere from your desktop to the cloud. Docker’s workflow makes development, testing, and deployment much easier and much faster. Kubernetes has established itself as the standard platform for container management, orchestration, and deployment. To deploy Docker for real-world applications and gain hands-on experience with, deploying and managing market leading cloud platforms, you must be familiar with the basic concepts of Docker.

This comprehensive 2-in-1 course teaches you to deploy and manage applications on leading cloud platforms, such as Docker and Kubernetes. You’ll learn through practical demonstrations, clear explanations, and interesting real-world examples. It will give you a versatile range of Docker and Kubernetes  skills, which you will put to work in your own applications.

This training program includes 2 complete courses, carefully chosen to give you the most comprehensive training possible.

The first course, Learning Kubernetes, starts off with basic installation of Kubernetes and all its dependencies. You will then learn deployment patterns and concepts for making Kubernetes highly-available. You will also learn how to manage a local Kubernetes deployment using MiniKube, Next, you will understand how to use secrets in your applications by creating and decoding secrets. You will learn to deploy your docker applications on Kubernetes.

The second course, Working with Advanced Docker Operations, teaches you how to create pods and multi-container pods. You will then learn how to use services and volumes with pods such as labels and selectors, Kubernetes services, creating secrets and ConfigMaps, and plain and persistent volumes.You will also learn how to install the ELK stack, view logs in Kibana, and  view performance data in Grafana. Next, you will learn how to use continuous integration techniques to automatically build and test Docker images. You will be glanced through some use cases on containers wherein each use case highlights a particular problem and you will find how Docker helps solve it.

By the end of this training program, you’ll be able to use Kubernetes orchestration system, monitor Docker cluster, and automate your applications to build, test, and deploy.
