About this training

With a high level of practical orientation, this training takes you from basic knowledge of containers to advanced topics in everyday use of Docker© – the most frequently used container runtime in the DevOps context.

You will start the training on the first day with a fixed program on the most important basics. For the second day, you can choose from a variety of advanced topics to suit your needs.
