This course will get learners quickly up to speed with the fundamentals of Docker and containers. The course includes major new features introduced in Docker 1.12, including Swarm mode, services, and stacks.
There have been some major changes to Docker that were introduced with Docker 1.12, and this course, Getting Started with Docker, will help get you up to speed. You'll start with installing Docker on the most common development and production platforms - Windows and Mac laptops, Windows Server 2016, and Linux. Next, you'll get to see some fundamental concepts of containers and images, including how to perform common management tasks. You'll also spend a good deal of time covering all the new stuff introduced with Docker 1.12, including Swarm mode, services, scaling, rolling updates, stacks, and distributed application bundles. After this course, you'll be up and running with some of the game-changing improvements announced with Docker 1.12 and have a solid understanding of the fundamentals of Docker.
Course Overview Hi, my name's Nigel Poulton, and I was going to say I'm from England or the UK, but you know what? I spend so much of my time these days inside of containers riding about on clouds that I don't think it matters anymore where I'm from. Anyway, I'm a Docker Captain, and I'm the author of quite a few Docker-related courses here at Pluralsight, but I am telling you this one here is my best yet by a mile, like my magnum opus, if you will, and I'm really excited to be presenting it to you. So, for quite a while now, Docker and containers have been threatening to change the way we do IT, and for some companies, yeah, I totally get it, they've already done that. But I don't know. It's always kind of felt like there's been something missing, sort of not quite there yet when it comes to being ready for prime time, real-world production deployments at scale. Well, I'm here to tell you that stuff has arrived, it is here now, and we are all over it in this course. Things like native orchestration with swarm mode in all of its highly available, default, secure out-of-the-box goodness. We'll cover the new declarative service model. We'll see how to scale surfaces, see how to perform rolling application updates, and just in case that's not enough, we'll cover stacks and bundles, the future of developing and deploying large scale microservice apps. So we'll be covering how to get up and running with Docker, of course, but we'll be throwing in all of the new things that got introduced with Docker 1.12. Now tell me that's not worth a couple of hours of your time. Let's go!
