What you’ll learn

  • Understand what Docker is and isn’t
  • Install Docker on MacOS, Windows & Linux
  • Understand Docker’s ecosystem
  • Master Docker’s core features
  • Master Docker Compose’s core features
  • Build, run and push your own custom Docker images
  • Manage real world web applications with Docker
  • Skills to “Dockerize” your own web applications no matter what framework you use

Learn the Docker Fundamentals and Then Dockerize Your Own Web Apps

This course is meant for anyone looking to improve the way they build and distribute applications. You could be a web developer, sysadmin, operations manager, or someone who is part of an IT / testing / QA team.

  • Developers use Docker to set up and run applications without the headache of having to install everything manually
  • Operators use Docker to distribute applications across environments consistently and optimize server resources
  • QA teams use Docker to quickly build test environments without having to deal with “but it works for me!” problems

By the time you finish this course you’ll know everything you need to start using Docker / Docker Compose on your own projects.

This course was flawless in explaining every segment in detail while keeping it easy to follow along and learn. — Brian K.

It doesn’t matter if you use Ruby on Rails, NodeJS, Flask, Django, Java, Golang or any other language / framework. At the end of the day, Docker is a toolset that helps you package up and distribute your applications in a portable and repeatable way. You’ll be able to set up entire development environments in a single command and run those same applications exactly the same in production with total confidence that it will work because you’re just moving around special packages that Docker creates for you under the hood.

The days of “well it works for me!” or having to point another developer to a 20 page document on how to set up your web application are long over. Docker fixes those problems and so much more.

No prior Docker knowledge is necessary to take this course. We’ll go all the way from “What is Docker?” to exploring what types of problems Docker solves to completely mastering Docker’s core features (we’ll cover Docker Compose in great depth too). Through out the process we’ll go over Dockerizing simple web apps, complex multi-service web apps and I’ll show you exactly how to Dockerize your own web apps.

I’m a big fan of learning by doing so this course has just enough theory combined with dozens of guided labs and challenges. This way you’ll learn both the “why” and the “how”.

Instead of sifting through 100+ scattered blog posts, this course lays everything out on a silver platter. I’ve done years of research and testing so you don’t have to. All you have to do is sit back, relax and follow along with the videos. You’re only a few short hours away from mastering Docker and applying it to your own applications.

I have been through very few learning experiences that were this thorough. Nick not only teaches you how to use Docker, but also how to troubleshoot Docker problems and research solutions. — Dennis E.

What makes me suitable for teaching a course on Docker?

Hi, I’m Nick.

  • I’ve been a self taught software developer for the last 20 years. I’ve been actively using Docker since 2014. I also help train teams and individuals on how to “Dockerize” their applications.
  • This course is loaded with best practices and tips I’ve learned from years of real world experience and now I want to share everything I’ve learned with you.
  • I’ve answered over 4,000 questions on Docker over the years through my previous Docker courses.
  • I’m also a Docker Captain. Docker Captain is a title that Docker awards to select members of the community. Docker Captains are both experts in their field and are passionate about sharing their Docker knowledge with others.

Nick has always been quick to respond to my questions. I’ve never had a message fall through the cracks with Nick. He has become an invaluable mentor. — Kyle. E

Bonus content:

  • Self contained notes that you can download and reference. It includes every command we run and all websites I visit on camera. No more hunting around videos to quickly find the content you want to review.
  • Over half a dozen code examples on how to Dockerize popular web frameworks.

Who this course is for:

  • Web developers looking to improve how they develop their applications
  • Sysadmins / Operators looking to efficiently distribute their applications
  • IT / QA teams who want to test applications in a more consistent way
  • Anyone who wants to land a job related to using and implementing Docker

  1. Donny Phan

    Super practical. Lessons are catered towards anyone looking to find work in this industry. It felt very comprehensive and gave me a broad understanding of the programming spectrum

  2. Madhav raj Verma

    Thanks for your great effort. i am fully satisfied with this course the way you teach and your explanation are very clear ,The content you provide in your course no one can do this at this price.

  3. Sachin Gupta

    I really didn’t want to leave a low rating as Angela is a great teacher. The 1st half of this course was terrific. The 2nd half was terrible. Under the justification of “teaching students how to figure things out on their own”, pretty much all videos and all explanations were dropped. You were just told what to do, given links to documentation and told to figure it out on your own. I understand doing that to some degree, but to revert to that entirely for nearly half the content barely makes this a course. It’s just a list of things for you to learn, then you’re left on your own to learn them. The 2nd half was so bad, especially the data science component, that I didn’t bother finishing the course.

  4. Vincent Beaudet

    Amazing 40 days course.
    Angela is a great teacher.
    The other 60 days are all about web developement, interacting with web pages, on your own with little to no explanations. I did not expect that at all. I wanted to learn more about software and scripting.
    This left me disappointed , confused and i started to doubt myself. Not a fun experience after the amount of effort i’v put in this course.

    Exercices format and explanations for the first 40 days were worth it tho.

  5. Ben K

    Not just an introduction to python, but really helps you learn fundamental aspects of python and coding in general. Some parts may require some knowledge on the subject (data science comes to mind) and there is quite some web development in the course. So, a few areas were not completely to my liking (I would have liked to see it done differently), but this course deserves the 5 stars in my opinion.

  6. Omid Alikhel

    I found the method a bit difficult when a code is written and then changed back to something different, with no enough explanation of how something happened and where it came from or a step by step explanation of why something is happening, i have no doubt in the instructors talent, but we are beginners!

  7. Devang Jain

    The course is not updated and most of the solution codes don’t work and there are no video solutions towards the end

  8. Szymon Kozak

    I think that the course tutor is really good in giving right information to learn at the right time. Thanks to this fact, my understanding of coding in python after 29 days of learning is above my expectations.

  9. Begoña Ruiz Diaz

    Ha sido la mejor elección que podría haber hecho.

  10. Vaibhav Sachdeva

    I want to thank Angela for making such an amazing course. It really helped me explore more things with python.
