About this course

Docker is a very handy tool that allows us to create multiple virtual environments that make software development and deployment very easy, however there is a learning curve when using docker and it takes time to understand all of the tricks, tips and a set of best practices that everyone follows. Any one can start using docker but to be good at using it one needs to be aware of what the optimisations are in Docker and how to make the best use of them.

In this course we will be taking the concepts we learned in previous Docker Courses and try to implement them but with all the tips, tricks and best practices in our mind. We will also be diving deep in understanding what Docker Images are and how they are formed as it will help us gain a better understanding.
