Docker Fundamentals Jumpstart

Add to calendar

Docker, a mechanism for low-overhead virtualization, is emerging as a key aspect of DevOps architectures. Interest in Docker—with its lightweight, portable, “build once, configure once, and run anywhere” containers—is growing. If you want to jumpstart your Docker skills, join Ali Hussain to gain first-hand knowledge to help your organization streamline workflows, speed up product releases, and reduce hardware investments. He discusses the basics of Docker: concepts, terminology, commands, must-know features, and real-world examples of Docker projects. Ali presents and demonstrates best practices, pitfalls, and practical advice from real-world case studies using Docker. Focusing on eight common use cases, he explores the advantages containers bring to each. Learn how to create isolated environments in a single machine without imposing a performance overhead. Discover new possibilities for optimizing developer workflows (code delivery) and creating multi-tenant applications—all while improving the quality and speed of software releases and spending less time coding.
