Docker is a software development container program that provides a fast and low-overhead alternative to traditional methods. Students who are already software developers who know how to write code in a variety of programming environments are introduced to Docker Container technologies. Starting with an introduction to the Linux OS, students are shown how to install Docker. The Docker architecture is discussed, students run containers and build custom images by pulling and pushing images from the Docker registry. Labs and assignments include composing applications using popular open source software like Python, Node.js, GoLang, OpenJDK and .NET Core and running them on Docker containers. Microservices concepts are introduced in the context of Docker and Docker on Windows is discussed and how cloud providers support Docker. Topics also include: DevOps, Orchestration, networking Docker containers, and data persistence using Volumes. Upon successful completion students will be able to create Docker containers, run and build custom Docker images, pull and push images from Docker Hub and automatically deploy software applications.
