Course Overview Hi, everyone. My name is Chris B. Behrens, and welcome to my course, Developing SQL Server Databases with Docker. SQL Server is one of the most widely used database platforms in the world, and the shift to containers is changing the way we work with them. At the root of this is the tension between stateless containers and very much stateful databases, and we'll tackle this paradox head on. Some of the major topics that we will cover include Windows versus Linux as the container host, solving that tricky state question, and a first‑class solution to upgrading your schema and data over time. By the end of this course, you will have the skills and knowledge of how to construct SQL Server instances in Docker, upgrade and maintain the schemas, and you'll learn a few tricks that will make your testing easier. Before beginning the course, you should be comfortable with Docker and SQL Server. From here, you should feel comfortable diving into advanced Docker and SQL Server courses on Big Data and Deploying SQL Containers to Azure. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn how to work with SQL Servers in Docker with the Developing SQL Server Databases with Docker course at Pluralsight.
