Course Overview
Docker and Kubernetes. Everyone's talking about them, tons of people are using them, and it is high time we all got our heads around them. And that's the aim of this course, to get you up and running with the most important bits of what are probably the two most important technologies since the cloud itself. Well, my name's Nigel Poulton, and I'm going to be your instructor for the course. I'm a Docker captain, I've got a ton of Docker and Kubernetes courses already here on Pluralsight, and I've written books on the topic. And to say I'm excited about delivering this course would be an understatement. Anyway, it's a no-previous-experience- required course. In fact, it's designed to be your first step into the world of containers and cloud native. So, from the start, we'll cover all the basics of containers. Obviously, we'll be all over Docker and Kubernetes, but we'll also explain microservices and cloud native. Then, as well as the tech, we'll be looking at ways to prepare ourselves and our businesses to thrive in a container world, and we'll discuss the current state of the union. So like, is this stuff ready for your company and your business-critical production environment? Now then, this course is important because Docker and Kubernetes are literally changing the IT world, and if you're involved in IT, which I assume you are, and you want to position yourself as best you can for the future, then you absolutely need to know this stuff. It's just not an option. But you know what? As well as being important, the technologies are a bit special as well. I mean, it's not often a couple of technologies come along and reshape our world like these are. So, two promises from me: One, by the time you're done with the course, you'll be well up to speed, and two, the course is going to be a lot of fun. Sound good? Alright then, let's crack on.
