What you'll learn

  • Learn how to build and deploy applications and services to Docker-based production environments via scripting and automation


Docker, a container-based method of application packaging and lightweight virtualization, has taken the DevOps world by storm and is the deployment platform of choice for applications targeting cloud-based and microservices architectures. Whether you are migrating existing applications or starting afresh with microservices, Clarence Bakirtzidis helps you get started on your journey to Docker-based production environments, focusing on an infrastructure-as-code approach via scripting and automation from the command-line interface.

Topics include:

  • A history of containers
  • Why Docker is a good platform for microservices
  • An overview of Docker core concepts (images, registry, containers, command-line usage, etc.)
  • Deploying and scaling applications in multihost Docker environments
  • Application configuration and service discovery
  • Stateful applications
  • Operational concerns (monitoring and metrics, analyzing logs, security considerations, etc.)
  • Docker platform choices
