Docker Training

Why not simply watch a YouTube tutorial? Because they often leave out how to automatically get from Dockerfile to the finished container image in the registry. Participants of our Docker training learn how to deal with containers and, above all, which tools make their work easier. By the end of the course, they will be able to create pipelines with GitLab, Jenkins, and other tools to build container images using Docker or alternatives like Buildah and kaniko. Participants build the necessary infrastructure in the course as container services.

This course is intended for students who have little or no experience with Docker. It starts with an introduction to containers to ensure a common level of knowledge. After that, participants will set up GitLab as a containerized application. With this infrastructure, they learn to build images: first entirely by hand, eventually fully automatically. Finally, participants learn about Docker alternatives and build their images with Buildah or kaniko, for example.

The training consists of a combination of lecture and practical exercises from everyday operations. Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to use containers productively.

    • Navigating on the command line

What our participants say

“It had been clear for a long time that we wanted to use Docker. Only how tot do so was still a little uncertain. Fortunately, ATIX AG was there to help us with their expertise. Together, we were able to work out how we could package our software via pipeline as a Docker image and make it available to our customers—directly or in the cloud. That way, we not only deepened our understanding of containers, but we also went home with automation that works. ATIX’s expert and tailored support helped us get there quickly, and we’d get help here again anytime.”
