Introduction to Docker and Containers


You keep hearing about Docker, but never had the opportunity to dive in and see it in action? Now is the time! In this hands-on workshop, you will learn about Docker basic concepts, how to run containers, create your own images, interact with the "Docker Hub", and more.

Course outline:

- What's Docker?

- Running our first container

- Introducing Docker Hub

- Understanding Docker Images

- Different types of containers

- Building Images Interactively

- Building Images with Dockerfile

- Pushing and pulling images

- Development workflow with Docker

No previous knowledge of Docker or containers is required, but you will need some basic UNIX command-line skills.

You won't need to pre-install Docker before the course: each student will be given credentials to connect to an individual virtual machine. So all you need is a computer with a SSH client!
