About Kubernetes and Docker
Docker is the world’s leading software containerization platform. It packages your application into one standardised unit, wrapping it into a complete file system that contains everything needed to run on a server. Kubernetes is a system created by Google to automate the deployment, scaling and management of containerized applications (like the ones Docker creates). The two combined make life a breeze for anyone needing to transport, install and maintain complex software applications anywhere.
Cloud computing is growing at an astounding pace and Amazon web services are at the forefront of this technological revolution. They were the first one to launch a publicly available cloud infrastructure and ever since Amazon has been a clear market leader in this space. Whether you are an experienced AWS user or are just getting started with cloud computing. You know it is quite easy to get your infrastructure components deployed in the AWS cloud.
But do you ever wonder what happens behind the scenes:
- When you deploy a new RDS database?
- A new EC2 instance?
- How does AWS manage the complexity of deploying your cloud resources in a secure and isolated environment
- How do the network packets travel within your cloud infrastructure and how can you and your users access those resources?
If so, then we know exactly where you're coming from.
AWS does provide a very robust and mature network management infrastructure which is ever pervasive in all aspects of the AWS infrastructure. Indeed, it is not necessary to understand the intricate details of these networking details. AWS hides most of these complexities very well. You can simply log in to your AWS management console and start using AWS services. AWS will deploy all the necessary networking components for you in the background automatically.
But if you unveil the curtain slightly and take a peek at all sophisticated components that AWS provisions for deploying a secure and robust operating environment – you will get a much deeper understanding of the AWS cloud. You will be able to design, architecture and operationalize your cloud application with more efficiency and confidence.
The AWS management tools work very hard to hide these details from you. But for a cloud architect or a cloud administrator who is responsible for designing and architecting cloud applications – this deeper understanding of the AWS cloud’s inner working is essential knowledge.
To isolate the cloud environment for each of its users, AWS uses a powerful concept called AWS VPC.
AWS VPC stands for Amazon Virtual Private Cloud. It is a virtual private network that enables us to launch AWS resources into a virtual network that we've defined. It is one of the core components of networking infrastructure within the AWS cloud – which allows us to setup our cloud resources security and privately (isolated from all other AWS cloud users).
This course teaches you how to build, configure and manage your own Virtual Private Cloud (VPC). The course will start with basics of Virtual Private cloud and then move deeper into details about AWS VPC like:
- What exactly is AWS VPC and what are its uses
- What are the different types of VPCs supported by AWS
- How to build your own Virtual Private Cloud
- What are the various Components of the AWS VPC
- What are subnets, gateways, route tables, internet gateways etc.
- What are the security mechanisms in the context of AWS VPC
If you are serious about understanding your AWS based cloud infrastructure – then gaining this knowledge about the AWS networking components in conjunction with other tools and frameworks is the only way to go. When any startup or technology company is looking to implement their software solutions in the AWS cloud infrastructure – they are willing to pay big money for cloud engineers and consultants to help them manage their cloud infrastructure. In fact, the hourly rates cloud engineers are easily few hundred dollars an hour. And the demand for these skills is just exploding.

Whether you are an experienced AWS user or are just getting started with cloud computing. You know it is quite easy to get your infrastructure components deployed in the AWS cloud.
But do you ever wonder how you can orchestrate and manage your AWS resources in an easy and efficient manner? How do you automate the deployment and configuration of your EC2 instances, your IAM users, your elastic load balancers and numerous other AWS components services that your applications rely on?
If so, then we know exactly where you're coming from.
AWS does provide a very useful web based management console to deploy and manage all these cloud resources. The AWS management console works nicely if you have to occasionally make some changes to your cloud infrastructure which comprises of a few components.
But for a cloud architect or a cloud administrator who tend to manage tens or hundreds or even thousands of cloud resources – using the AWS management console may be too time-consuming and inefficient.
AWS also provides a powerful command line interface which can be used to manage AWS services known as AWS CLI.
AWS CLI stands for Amazon Web Services Command Line Interface.
It is a comprehensive and essential toolset provided by AWS which helps software engineers, IT and operations teams and DevOps engineers manage their cloud services and resources. It is a command line interface tool which facilitates automation by using scripting to operationalize your AWS resources from the command window or terminal.
If you are serious about automating your AWS based cloud infrastructure – then using the AWS CLI toolset in conjunction with bash scripting is the only way to go. And when any startup or technology company is looking to implement DevOps practices to automate their cloud infrastructure – they are willing to pay big money for cloud engineers and consultants to help them manage their cloud infrastructure. In fact, the hourly rates cloud engineers are easily few hundred dollars an hour. And the demand for these skills is just exploding.

This course will teach you the essential knowledge required to integrate Docker in your everyday development flow. Docker is an easy way for developers to recreate a production-level server cluster locally in their desktop or laptop using very few resources.
A lot of companies and startups are moving to Docker, because it speeds up the development process and reduces the amount of debugging that occurs when they create software against different versions of their operating system and libraries.
The course covers the basic concepts and goes through the setup of different use cases, specifically Flask-related, from a simple web application to MySQL and MongoDB multi-server setups.
At the end of the course students will be able to write solid Dockerfiles and Docker Compose configuration files that will allow them to write software against reliable environments and without the need to install packages like Python, MySQL or MongoDB. Just install the simple Docker client for Windows or Mac and you’re set to go!
If you already know the basics of Flask and you are interested in how to setup Docker containers for their development, this is the course for you.
Docker has taken the development world by storm in recent years, being the first effective tool that wraps up a piece of software in a complete file system package, installs it on a server, and runs it repeatedly. However, until recently it was difficult to do this with micro-architectures composed of numerous containers that all need to work in conjunction with one another. Enter Docker Compose, the handiest tool to hit the tech world since Docker. Here’s everything you need to know...
Learn Docker Compose Inside Out
- Define multi-container application environments
- Create flexible, customisable environments and networks
- Transform an existing application into a fully Docker-ised environment
- Enhance your Docker experience
Make Your Docker Experience Even More Stress-Free
This Docker Compose online course will make you a DC expert, learning the tool from top to bottom. It has been specifically designed for those that already know Docker, so you’ll skip the baby steps and dive straight in. First you’ll cover the basic features using a sample environment, gaining an understanding of restarts, dependencies, and persisting the database with a volume.
After that you’ll progress to networks. You’ll take an in-depth look at isolating containers, aliases and container names, links, using external networks, and how updates affect networking. Then it’s on to the really good stuff; a section each is dedicated to volumes, logging, the Compose CLI, and ‘Composing Compose’ (don’t worry, it won’t be as complicated as it sounds by the time you get there). Finally you’ll learn about Compose in Production.
The course is organised into logical sections so you can progress at your pace and in your own time. By the end, you’ll apply what you’ve learned to create a large environment for a sample legacy system, using all of the features covered in previous sections. You’ll then have the skills and confidence needed to go forth and create your own flexible application environments with Docker Compose.
About Docker Compose
Docker Compose is a useful tool from the people at Docker. It makes defining and running application environments made up of multiple Docker containers even easier and more efficient. Up until now, starting any more than one or two Docker containers was extremely complicated. With Docker Compose, the entire process just got infinitely better.
For much longer than anyone cares to admit, it was easier to ship a physical container of coffee beans halfway around the world than it was to get all of the necessary bits and pieces needed for a software program from one machine to another. Then came Docker, and the problem was finally solved. This very interesting platform is fun and easy to learn, and gives an entirely new perspective on the world of programming. Plus, it’s another pretty bow to add to your CV.
Your Complete Docker Crash Course
- Learn what Docker is and how to use it
- Familiarise yourself with the Linux operating system
- Get to grips with Docker Hub
- Create your own Wordpress site with Docker
No Linux Experience? No Problem!
This course has been designed for anyone who wants to learn Docker regardless of their experience level, but if you’re not familiar with Linux (which Docker uses), never fear; we’ve included an extensive - but not overwhelming - overview.
You’ll start by taking a look at Docker’s infrastructure and – you’ll be glad to know – how to install it on OSX and Windows. Once that’s done, you’ll learn everything you need to know images and containers, creating an image and running a web server. Then it’s into the nitty gritty of Docker Hub, tag, push and pull images, customising an image, and Docker Commands. You’ll finish off by creating a fully functional Wordpress website and running it, using Docker as the catalyst to make it happen.
With over 25 lectures and 2 hours of content, by the end of this course you’ll know exactly what Docker can do and how do it. Plus, you’ll be posed to use it in scenarios where it will most likely save you plenty of work. Not bad!
Basically, Docker allows you to ‘build, ship and run any app, anywhere’. It automates the deployment of apps inside software containers using various features of the Linux operating system (although it can be used on Mac and Windows). Think of it like a shipyard with a big cargo ship – it packages the various pieces of cargo needed for delivery (i.e software), then gets it onto the ship and off to its destination efficiently, safely and in one neat package.
