BoxBoat Boot Camp for Docker

BoxBoat Boot Camp for Docker

Duration: 2 Days
Location: On-site

This hands-on Docker boot camp training session will introduce both developers and operations to the Docker toolchain, terminology, and ecosystem. Participants will walk away with an introductory knowledge of how Docker can be utilized specifically in their environment for the most common use cases including CI/CD, data center utilization, and application modernization through the microservice architecture. The Docker Quickstart offers a cost-effective and efficient way for companies and government agencies to begin the deployment of Docker in their environment.

We don’t offer your “typical” training package. This session is developer and ops focused, and everything is hands-on from the very beginning. Your staff will execute Docker commands, build images, and deploy distributed microservices starting within the first 30 minutes of the course. Our hands-on approach is the best way to quickly and effectively transition knowledge to your team.

Docker is an open platform for developers and sysadmins to build, ship, and run distributed applications. Docker enables applications to be quickly assembled from components and eliminates the friction between development, QA, and production environments. As a result, IT can ship software faster and run the same application, unchanged, on laptops, data center VMs, and any cloud.
