👋 Hey Gophers! In this micro-course, we are going to be covering everything you need in order to get up and running using Docker.

Topics We’ll Be Covering

My intention for this course is to give you a solid grounding in the fundamentals of Docker. We’ll start off building a lightweight Docker image and then look at topics such as how we can run this image as a container.

We’ll then move on to more complex topics such as running complex applications with docker-compose and covering how the networking works between multiple containers.

By the end of this course, you should understand how Docker works at a high level, and you should be able to take what you’ve learned and be able to build your own Docker images for your own Go applications.
