While free for you, I still have to pay for hosting the site and streaming the videos. If you enjoy the course, you can thank me by clicking the Buy Me A Coffee button and making a small donation. You can also buy one of my courses and learn how to use containers and Kubernetes on DigitalOcean, Linode, Google Cloud, or Azure.
Thanks and have fun learning! 😀
Your trainer, Guy Barrette
Learn how to containerize applications with the Docker CLI and Visual Studio Code. Push and pull container images on Docker Hub, a container registry. Learn how to create multi-container applications using Docker Compose.
Learn about the Kubernetes architecture and how it works. Run it locally and use the Kubernetes CLI and Visual Studio Code to run, debug and troubleshoot applications and services. Learn about pods and the different workloads available. Configure networking, storage and set liveness and readiness probes.
No Cloud account required
This course does not require an account with a Cloud provider. Every lab runs locally using free software.
Better then YouTube videos
Compared to watching YouTube videos, you get a much better learning experience. You can track your progress, take notes, copy/paste commands to run in the terminal.
This technical course covers the core Docker and Kubernetes concepts and guides you to build containers. Developers, DevOps, SREs and I.T. Pros will learn how to use containers locally. You’ll experience several demos and hands-on exercises throughout the course as you learn how to build and deploy containers. No coding experience is required for the hands-on activities but you’ll use the terminal, command prompt and VS Code extensively.
You’ll learn about microservices and their use cases. You’ll then learn about containers and Kubenernetes. You’ll learn how to deploy and manage microservices applications packaged in containers locally. This will provide you the essential foundation that you’ll need before heading to the cloud.
