BoxBoat Boot Camp for Docker

Duration: 2 Days
Location: On-site

This hands-on Docker boot camp 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. A client application will be selected for containerization as part of the exercise. The Docker Quickstart offers a cost-effective and efficient way for companies and government agencies to begin the deployment of Docker in their environment.

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.
