Overview Overview

Docker is a platform for developers and sysadmins to maintain distributed applications. It consists of a runtime to run containers and a service for sharing containers.

With docker the same app can run unchanged on laptops, dedicated servers and virtual servers.

This course teaches the basic usage of Docker, useful both for developers and system administrators. The course includes a lot of hands on exercises and the participants will practice in their own Docker environment and build their own Docker images during the 2 days.
