Be ready for the Dockerized future with the number ONE Docker + Kubernetes mega-course on Udemy. Welcome to the most complete and up-to-date course for learning and using containers end-to-end, from development and testing to server deployments and production. Taught by an award-winning Docker Captain and DevOps consultant.
Just starting out with Docker? Perfect. This course starts out assuming you're new to containers.
Or: Using Docker now and need to deal with real-world problems? I'm here for you! See my production topics around Swarm, Kubernetes, secrets, logging, rolling upgrades, and more.
Why should you learn from me? Why trust me to teach you the best ways to use Docker?:
I'm A Practitioner. Welcome to the real world: I've got 20 years of sysadmin and developer experience, over 30 certifications, and have been using Docker and the container ecosystem for my consulting clients and my own companies since Docker's early days. Learn from someone who's run hundreds of containers across dozens of projects and organizations.
I'm An Educator. Learn from someone who knows how to make a syllabus: I want to help you. People say I'm good at it. For the last few years, I've trained thousands of people on using Docker in workshops, conferences, and meetups. See me teach at events like DockerCon, O'Reilly Velocity, GOTO Conf, and Linux Open Source Summit. I hope you'll decide to learn with me and join the fantastic online Docker community.
I Lead Communities. Also, I'm a Docker Captain, meaning that Docker Inc. thinks I know a thing or two about Docker and that I do well in sharing it with others. In the real world: I help run two local meetups in our fabulous tech community in Norfolk/Virginia Beach USA. I help online: usually in Slack and Twitter, where I learn from and help others.
This is a living course and will be updated as Docker and Kubernetes features change.
This course is designed to be fast at getting you started but also get you deep into the "why" of things. Simply the fastest and best way to learn the latest container skills. Look at the scope of topics in the Session and see the breadth of skills you will learn.
Also included is a private Slack Chat group with 20k students for getting help with this course and continuing your Docker and DevOps learning with help from myself and other students.
Some of the many cool things you'll do in this course:
Edit web code on your machine while it's served up in a container
Lockdown your apps in private networks that only expose necessary ports
Create a 3-node Swarm cluster in the cloud
Install Kubernetes and learn the leading server cluster tools
Use Virtual IP's for built-in load balancing in your cluster
Optimize your Dockerfiles for faster building and tiny deploys
Build/Publish your own custom application images
Learn the differences between Kubernetes and Swarm
Create your own image registry
Use Swarm Secrets to encrypt your environment configs, even on disk
Deploy container updates in a rolling always-up design
Create the config utopia of a single set of YAML files for local dev, CI testing, and prod cluster deploys
Extra things that come with this course:
Access to the course Slack team, for getting help/advice from me and other students.
Bonus videos I put elsewhere like YouTube, linked to from this course's resources.
Weekly Live Q&A on YouTube Live.
Tons of reference links to supplement this content.
Updates to content as Docker changes their features on these topics.
Bret Fisher, Docker Captain, and DevOps Sysadmin
Hey, I'm Bret. Thanks for learning about me. I'm a freelance DevOps and Docker consultant, trainer, speaker, and Open Source volunteer working from Virginia Beach, USA. I've helped over 250,000 people learn Docker and DevOps tools and techniques.
I've been a cloud and data center ops/sysadmin for more than 20 years. For years I've been exclusive to containers and I help teams Dockerize their apps and systems, and improve their speed of deployment, resiliency, metrics, and awareness. All that DevOps-y stuff.
I'm also a Docker Captain and Code for America Brigade Captain. I run monthly meetups, speak at conferences, and love helping others. I'm obsessed with containerizing any app I see, and I'll likely talk your ear off about it next time we meet. I sometimes develop in Node.js, Bash, and general web, usually for open source.
Docker Captain Program
Courses with this co-author signify that the primary author is a verified Docker Captain with Docker Inc.
Docker Captain is a distinction that Docker awards select members of the community that are both experts in their field and are passionate about sharing their Docker knowledge with others. Captains are Docker ambassadors (not employees) and their commitment to sharing their expertise has a huge impact on the Docker community – whether they are blogging, writing books, speaking, running workshops, creating tutorials and classes, offering support in forums, or organizing and contributing to local events – they help make Docker’s mission of democratizing technology possible.
