Docker and containers are a whole new way of developing and delivering applications and IT infrastructure. In this course, you'll learn how this is going to impact you as an individual as well as the teams and organizations you work for. This course will cover Docker and containers, container registries, container orchestration, whether this stuff is for the enterprise, and how to prepare yourself for it.
Course Overview Hi, and welcome to Pluralsight. I'm Nigel Poulton, and I can barely tell you how excited I am to bring you this big picture overview course on Docker and Containers. Because you know what? This stuff really is revolutionizing, not only the way we develop and deliver IT applications, but also the way in which we deliver IT infrastructure. And there really are no prerequisites for this course because we're going to start from the top. So we'll explain what a container actually is, and we'll look at Docker, the company and the technology at the forefront of it all. We'll also get into ways in which this will impact you and your business and your career. And we'll touch on some of the ways in which you can prepare. As well as all of that, we'll look at some of the major concepts and technologies, so things like container registries. What are they, and what difference do they make? And the same for container orchestration. What is it, and why is it important? The goal being by the end of the course you'll be well up to speed on containers, more than able to hold your own when discussing them and when doing your own investigations. Then, once you're done with the course and all up to speed, we've got plenty more courses in the library to take you to the next level.
