Docker is a platform for running applications in lightweight units of compute called containers. You can run new and old apps in containers, and get increased portability, security and efficiency for your software. The platform supports the full development and deployment lifecycle - with Docker you can build, ship and run any app anywhere.
Docker has production support for containers since Windows Server 2016, and Windows containers don’t need separate licensing. Migrating your apps to Docker is a great way to increase utilization in your datacenter, or to prepare for a move to the cloud. When your app is running in Docker, it’s easy to break features out and run them in separate containers, so you can deploy updates to your app without a full regression test.
In this half-day workshop you’ll use Docker EE on Windows Server 2019 and learn:
- How Docker containers work on Windows
- How to package existing .NET apps using Docker
- How to add monitoring to your containers
- How Docker supports resilience and scale on a single server
- How Docker swarm mode provides production-grade orchestration.
You don’t need your own Windows Server machine, you’ll be provided with a VM in the cloud.
You just need a Notebook, with a Chrome Browser and Remote Desktop client so you can connect.
