What you'll learn

Learn how to use Docker to streamline all the steps required to get software reliably from a single development workstation into production environments of any size.


In just a few years Docker and the broader ecosystem around containers have had a dramatic impact on how people build, deploy, and manage software at scale. Sean P. Kane, co-author of Docker: Up and Running, and an experienced trainer for O’Reilly will teach students everything that they need to know to start using Docker successfully. This will include teaching students how to install Docker, design and build Docker images, deploy and manage Docker containers. The workshop will also explore many of the conceptual aspects of working with containers and help students understand how Docker can improve the way you work and improve every step of the software pipeline.

The workshop will include hands-on exercises accompanied by supporting instructional materials.

Topics include:

  • History of Containers and Docker
  • Installing Docker: Community Edition
  • Building Docker images
  • Running Docker containers
  • Docker Compose
  • Debugging Docker images & containers
  • Monitoring Docker containers
  • Managing container resources
