“It works in my machine” is a common phrase that you hear developers say when their code breaks in production. To overcome this problem, packaging the application code and its dependencies as one single deployable unit are essential, and docker has become the industry's de facto standard to achieve this. In this course, “Developing React.js apps in Docker”, you’ll learn to dockerize a React application and learn the steps to develop, debug and deploy it in production. First, you’ll explore the different components that make up a docker file. Next, you’ll discover how to create an image and run docker container. Then, you will learn how to deploy multiple containers, setup networking between them using docker compose. Finally, you’ll learn how to debug the application inside the container and get the container production ready. When you’re finished with this course, you’ll have the skills and knowledge of developing a react application in docker needed to create a highly agile, portable, and independent microservice component.
Course Overview Hello, everyone. My name is Saravanan Dhandapani, and welcome to my course, Developing React.js Apps with Docker. I am a solution architect working in the financial domain focused on end‑to‑end design and architecture. Docker has become one of the primary components in the world of microservices in achieving agility, portability, availability, and isolation. In this course, you will learn the various components that make up a Dockerfile, create a Docker image, and run a Docker container; discover how to deploy multiple containers and set up networking between them using Docker Compose; learn how to use some of the standard Docker containers like Nginx, Redis, and Postgres; discover some of the common problems faced by developers and learn how to overcome them; and finally, you will learn how to debug the application running inside a container and get the application production‑ready. By the end of this course, you will have the skills and the knowledge of using various Docker components in developing a React application. I hope you will join me on this exciting journey and learn how to develop scalable and portable web apps in my course, Develop React.js Apps with Docker, at Pluralsight
