Introduction to Containers and Kubernetes

In the fast-paced world of software development, containerization has emerged as a game-changer, enabling developers to build, deploy, and scale applications seamlessly.

This one-day training class is designed for programmers and IT professionals who are eager to dive into the world of containers, Docker, and Kubernetes.

Through hands-on exercises and comprehensive discussions, participants will gain a solid understanding of containers, learn how to utilize Docker for packaging applications and explore the power of Kubernetes for orchestrating containerized environments.

Course Delivery

This one-day training class strikes a balance between theoretical concepts and practical hands-on exercises. Participants will engage in instructor-led presentations, group discussions, and interactive lab sessions. Real-world examples and best practices will be shared to provide participants with a fundamental understanding of containers, Docker, and Kubernetes.
Throughout the course, participants will embark on a step-by-step journey of taking an existing application and automating its build and deployment process using containers and GitHub Actions. By the end of this course, attendees will have a solid foundation in containerization technologies, and be proficient in using Docker for application packaging. Armed with these new capabilities, participants will be well-prepared to build efficient CI/CD pipelines and streamline their application deployments using containers and GitHub Actions.

Target audience

This course primarily caters to developers who are keen to learn how to work with containers and build an efficient Continuous Integration/Continuous Deployment (CI/CD) pipeline. Whether you are an aspiring programmer, a software engineer, or an IT professional seeking to enhance your skill set, this course will equip you with the necessary knowledge and practical techniques to leverage containers and streamline application deployment.

Prerequisites

To fully benefit from this training class, participants should possess a fundamental knowledge of programming and be familiar with using the command line in Windows. Additionally, having experience with version control using Git is essential. No prior experience with containers is required.
