About this training

This training picks up participants with no prior knowledge of containers and teaches the basics of development with Docker© with many hands-on exercises. Advanced topics, a look under the hood of Docker© as well as an outlook into the future of containers complete the offer. The intensive training provides a deep insight into the topic and thus helps to avoid pitfalls, sensitizes for security and imparts sustainable expertise.

In addition to the contents of the basic training "Docker© & Containers - Foundations" (Day 1-2), this training contains extra background knowledge (Day 3). It provides an extremely comprehensive insight into the topic of containers and its synergy with adjacent topics such as CI/CD, DevOps and Microservices.

In the process, the following questions, among others, are answered

  • What are containers?
  • How do you containerize an existing web and CLI application?
  • How to deploy and distribute images?
  • Can containers only be used for stateless applications?
  • How do you persist data when using containers?
  • How do containers communicate with each other?
  • How do you start an entire system landscape with just one command?
  • What do I need to know about security?
  • How to choose suitable base images?
  • What role do Docker© technologies play in Continuous Delivery and DevOps?
  • What are the options for containers on Windows?
  • What standards exist in the container environment?
  • How do you create images and launch containers without Docker©?
  • What features of the Linux kernel are relevant to containers?
