"I've followed another course on (Udemy). This one is a million times more in depth." "...when it comes to all the docker stuff, this is the course you're gonna want to take" - 2019 Student Udemy Review
Just updated in November 2019 with sections on:
Docker Security top 10
Docker 19.03 release features
Why should you learn from me? Why trust me to teach you the best ways to use Docker? (Hi, I'm Bret, please allow me to talk about myself for a sec):
I'm A Practitioner. Welcome to the real world: I've got 20 years of sysadmin and developer experience, over 30 certifications, and have been using Docker and the container ecosystem for my consulting clients and my own companies since Docker's early days. Learn from someone who's run hundreds of containers across dozens of projects and organizations.
I'm An Educator. Learn from someone who knows how to make a syllabus: I want to help you. People say I'm good at it. For the last few years I've trained thousands of people on using Docker in workshops, conferences and meetups. See me teach at events like DockerCon, O'Reilly Velocity, GOTO Conf, and Linux Open Source Summit. I hope you'll decide to learn with me, and join the fantastic online Docker community.
I Lead Communities. Also, I'm a Docker Captain, meaning that Docker Inc. thinks I know a thing or two about Docker and that I do well in sharing it with others. In the real-world: I help run two local meetups in our fabulous tech community in Norfolk/Virginia Beach USA. I help online: usually in Slack and Twitter, where I learn from and help others.
"Because of the Docker Mastery course, I landed my first DevOps job. Thank you Captain!" - Student Ronald Alonzo
"There are a lot of Docker courses on Udemy -- but ignore those, Bret is the single most qualified person to teach you." - Kevin Griffin, Microsoft MVP
Giving Back: a portion of my profit on this course will be donated to supporting open source and protecting our freedoms online! This course is only made possible by the amazing people creating open source. I'm standing on the shoulders of (open source) giants! Donations will be split between my favorite charities including the Electronic Frontier Foundation and Free Software Foundation. Look them up. They're awesome!
This is a living course, and will be updated as Docker and Kubernetes features change.
This course is designed to be fast at getting you started but also get you deep into the "why" of things. Simply the fastest and best way to learn the latest container skills. Look at the scope of topics in the Session and see the breadth of skills you will learn.
Also included is a private Slack Chat group with 20k students for getting help with this course and continuing your Docker and DevOps learning with help from myself and other students.
"Bret's course is a level above all of those resources, and if you're struggling to get a handle on Docker, this is the resource you need to invest in." - Austin Tindle, Course Student
Some of the many cool things you'll do in this course:
Edit web code on your machine while it's served up in a container
Lock down your apps in private networks that only expose necessary ports
Create a 3-node Swarm cluster in the cloud
Install Kubernetes and and learn the leading server cluster tools
Use Virtual IP's for built-in load balancing in your cluster

About the DCA (Docker Certificated Associate)
Love this course and keep coming back to it. Cheers by the way, I become fully competent in K8s, and landing work operating it. No matter how long I spend with k8s, its still a pain! I still prefer Docker Swarm. Its simple, Its powerful, and I really dont understand the Fuss over K8s when Docker Swarm is around. Popularity does not = best. Ease of Use + Power + Price = best. My Opinion. Thats why Im using it for my public applications that my company creates. I dont care what everyone says about K8s, I prefer having a life and spending less time on DevOps than spending it battling away just so I can have the (so called industry leader) badge. If my company and products ever reach multi million dollar status, well then... I'll have the resources to go down the K8s road, and frankly it wont be me. To all those reading this. ITs still worth you understanding how K8s runs, and you're going to need to know it. You cannot avoid it. But word of advice, If your setting up an online business or your first product, make life easy on yourself and go Docker Swarm. It will take way less time to learn (and troubleshoot trust me!!!) , and more time to focus on your actual product and your business. You can always upgrade to K8s when/if you hit the big time. Again.. Just my opinion. Thank you Again Bret, for this course, you're the Man!
So well for now! Really happy because i can learn docker and english at same time. I can understand easy!
My company is turning into Docker containers, so it is a good course for me that I will be using a lot
Too old content. Really bad kubernetes coverage. I think the course should be named docker and docker swarm with an overview to kubernetes
It was an amazing experience for me to go through your course and doing hands on all the exercise . Hoping to start the work on live project sooner will seek for your help in case get stuck anywhere through different communication channels such as slack , youtube live
This is the best course about Docker I've ever taken. The teacher explains everything in detail and offers practical assignments and source codes. Besides, he keeps the contents updated, so there is no problem doing the assignments on my own.
Very good match for what I was looking for. Allowed me to enhance my docker knowledge and flow straight into kubernetes
So far, easy to understand explanations of why Docker is important from the big picture point of view.
The training is solid, the trainer have lots of knowledge, but i have one complain the instructor don't indicate from where we can find some files, examples some "yml" with the deployment details to create our own replica and test the commands.
Great instructor. Very informative and most importantly, he keeps it interesting and easy to follow along.
So far I have just completed docker chapters and I am pretty confindent in docker after doing this all
Docker sistemini mevcut işletmemize entegre etmeye karar verdik fakat internet üzerinde aradığımız senaryolarla ilgili fazla detaylı bilgiler bulunmuyor. Fakat bu kursta docker yapıları ile ilgili detaylı bilgiler verilmekte daha 4. bölümü bitirmememe rağmen birçok konuya vakıf haldeyim
It is a very solid course that uses both questions and assignment to solidify your understanding of the material for docker and docker swarm. If you do the assignments, you start getting it into your fingers. For Kubernetes, it is more of an introduction, but that section of the course lacks questions and assignments. At the end of the course, there is some optional material. Some of it was interesting, some of it was annoying for guy that have a need to complete everything, but the DockerFile reviews at the very end was very useful. It is a very good course for docker and docker swarm, which also gives you a starting point for Kubernetes.
Course was complex, until last sections of it. Then it takes only "reading" changis and new ideas, that are not implemented, or only external "non-documented" featured have been listened.
In today’s world learning is easier using Udemy app and technology which they’re using , which’s more than real world class room teaching environment, you can start watching classes / lessons as and when you want and there are large range of courses and teachers / trainers available from all over the world ..
