This is a 2-hour long project-based course and the most comprehensive one about Docker Containers. By the end of this project, you will have packaged, built, and deployed a static web application using Docker. Along the way, you will also learn the essential concepts and commands about Docker containers. Apart from demystifying the Docker landscape, it'll prepare you with hands-on experience for building and containerizing your own applications. Even if you have no prior experience with containers, this project should be all you need to: - Get started with Docker containers & related concepts. - Deep-dive to get your hands dirty with Docker command-line. - Emerge as someone who knows how to use Docker and build containerized applications. Note: This course works best for learners who are based in the North America region. We’re currently working on providing the same experience in other regions.
