This course focuses on teaching you the Packaging and Delivery of Applications branch of the course objectives. This includes a focus on containers and how you can package and deliver optimized applications.
The use of programming concepts in the network engineering space is quickly becoming common and the need for new and existing network engineers to understand these concepts is paramount and the primary focus of Cisco’s Devnet professional certification. In this course, Cisco DEVOPS 300-910: Packaging and Delivering Applications, you will gain the ability to package and deliver solutions using container solutions like Docker. First, you will discover the basics of containers and how they were developed into a popular modern solution. Next, you will learn how to specifically use containers with the Docker solution. Finally, you will explore how to extend on this knowledge of Docker and implement solutions using Docker compose. When you’re finished with this course, you will have the skills and knowledge of containers needed to package and deliver solutions with Docker.
Course Overview Welcome to Pluralsight. My name is Sean Wilkins, and I am a network engineer, author, and technical editor at infoDispersion. I'm excited to welcome you to my course, Cisco DEVOPS 300‑910: Packaging and Delivering Applications. This course is one of many courses that are being placed into the Pluralsight library to cover Cisco DevOps solutions. This course specifically is targeted at the packaging and delivery of applications using Docker containers and Docker Compose. The first module discusses a few different options for setting up a lab environment to be used when learning Docker. The second module reviews what containers are and how they can be used in a modern environment. The third module covers the process of building a Docker application using three of the most common techniques, and the fourth module takes a look at Docker networking and Docker Compose and how it can be used to create a multi‑container solution. By the end of this course, you'll have a firm base of understanding of Docker basics, including how to utilize it to both package and deliver a container solution. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn about containers with the Cisco DEVOPS 300‑910: Packaging and Delivering Applications course, at Pluralsight.
