Docker Advanced

Course Code



2 Days

Docker Foundation or equivalent experience. Each attendee will be required to run a 64 bit virtual machine (provided with the course)
This course will provide working developers, DevOps staff and other technology professionals with an in depth look at the advanced aspects of Docker. Attendees will leave with a detailed understanding of container networking internals and multi-host networking, security, cgroups and namespaces, as well as experience with Docker API operations and distributed Docker configuration. Discussion includes a look at the evolving microservice-based ecosystem and the relationship between Docker and the Open Container Initiative (OCI) standards. The architecture of Docker is examined at the runC, containerd and engine levels. Each module concludes with a lab challenging attendees to experiment and explore, developing a deeper understanding of the way Docker works. The skills and knowledge developed in this course will be particularly useful to system designers and architects interested in leveraging the best features of containers and avoiding the pitfalls. Participants will also be introduced to both the Docker Machine tool used to provision Docker hosts and the Swarm orchestration system built into the Docker Engine. Upon completion of the course attendees will have the skills and information necessary to effectively integrate Docker and containers into sophisticated enterprise environments, integrating Docker at every step of the CI/CD pipeline as appropriate.
