Course Objectives

The course teaches the usage of Docker and provides technical background for it. On the first day, we cover use cases and basics of containers. The use cases provide insight into situations where containers are useful. The basics will enable participants to use containers confidently. The second day includes the creation of self-created images, as well as a deep insight into debugging with containers. With that, errors that can occur during the creation and operation of containers can be quickly found and fixed. The third day covers more in-depth topics as well as the use of containers in development environments, CI/CD systems and clusters. Thus, the course is explicitly aimed at teams with different experience levels with Docker and containers.
