Docker Advanced

The course is designed for anyone who wants to learn how to run the Docker in an extensive application infrastructure, both within your company, and from outside vendors. You will learn how to properly "dockerize" applications to make them robust and stable. Gradually, we go through the whole process from installing the Docker Server, through the creation of a dockerized version of the application, to deployment on the production infrastructure. And all this while adhering to best practices for creating and running such applications. On practical examples, we will try out all of the advanced techniques that Docker and its ecosystem offer. Thanks to the extensive practical experience of the lecturers, we will also focus on the most common problems and mistakes most commonly made by Docker users.
