Student Reviews

  • Andrew (5.0/5) “Thank you very much, for such a great course. All the information is explained in an amazing manner. The last two sections from docker con and Q&A were also amazing due to the staff which was explained in them. I will recommend this course to everyone who wants to get hands-on docker. Thank you very much))))”
  • Patryk B. (5.0/5) “Bret is a very good speaker. He is this type of teacher that you listen to because the speech and content is interesting, and not because you have to. Apart from that, the content is thoroughly thought through and gives a true “hands on” experience. Lastly, the assignments are awesome! I recommend this course big time!”
  • Alvaro Moises G. (5.0/5) “ Thank you, Bret, I look forward to taking your Kubernetes course once it is at an affordable price to me. I come from the VMware world so it was easy to pick up these docker-engine concepts, commands, and use cases, however, I know that Orchestration is a must, and in this opportunity, I will go for Kubernetes.”
  • Andrew C. (5.0/5) “Great course to get anyone started. Full of information and good building blocks to get yourself started with Dev-Ops. I have already got the Kubernetes course and cannot wait to finish that either! Well worth the money, and good as a reference point when I need to look back on topics.”
  • Dominik R. (5.0/5) “Bret is excellent at teaching even complicated topics in a way that is easy to follow and still very precise. Thank you Bret! I had an awesome time going through all your great content.”
  • Cristian Alfredo Ramireaz P. (4.0/5) “It has great content but some lectures are outdated, and probably you have to find solutions outside the course or look for un-deprecated commands in some cases, even though, you can learn a lot from the course and search more into documentation and other resources that Bret brought for us.”
  • Alejo B. (4.0/5) “Even though it is a bit outdated, every breaking change is either covered by Bret or detailed in current lecture questions. Assignments stop halfway through the course which disappoints me. Other than that the course is full of valuable information.”
  • Matipa M. (4.0/5) “Great course that gives a good explanation to docker and kubernetes, however I think the course requires video updates, there is a lot of things that have changed and that require trouble shooting so would be nice to those changes in video format instead of having them in the form of notes before lectures. Besides that I really appreciate the effort you put in to the course thanks!”
  • Adrian H. (3.0/5) “It seems like at the start there is much to learn, but afterwards there is not so much training and such and it becomes boring and not so useful.”
  • Nicolas P. (3.0/5) “The teacher is pretty good, the material is fair enough but the examples and its code part is a bit confusing. So many examples, in the beginning, include details that get you far from the real concept of docker.”

Docker and Kubernetes: The Complete Guide: FAQs

Ques. How long does it take to learn Docker and Kubernetes?

Ans. It usually takes a week to ten days to master the basics of Docker and experiment with the examples. Advanced topics will take a little longer to cover. You must experiment with Docker’s detailed concepts and learn them gradually. Ubuntu or the Windows 10 operating system can be used.

Ques. Which course is best for Docker and Kubernetes?

Ans. The best Docker and Kubernetes courses are,

  • Docker and Kubernetes: The Complete Guide
  • Docker Crash Course for Busy Developers and DevOps
  • Getting Started with Docker (Pluralsight)
  • Docker for Developers (Educative)
  • A Practical Guide to Kubernetes (Educative)
  • Docker Deep Dive (Pluralsight)

Ques. How can I learn Docker and Kubernetes from scratch?

Ans. The following ways should be implemented to learn Docker and Kubernetes from scratch,

  • No prior knowledge of Docker is required to learn it from the ground up.
  • To inspect and debug running containers, master the Docker CLI.
  • Build a CI + CD pipeline from scratch with Github, Travis CI, and AWS.
  • Understand the purpose and theory of Kubernetes by building a complex app.

Ques. Should I learn Docker in 2023?

Ans. Docker helps with DevOps because it simplifies deployment and scaling, and that’s why Every DevOps engineer should learn Docker in 2023.

Ques. How many days will it take to learn Kubernetes?

Ans. Usually, it takes 13 hours to learn Kubernetes

Ques. What should I learn before Kubernetes?

Ans. Container technologies such as Docker, Podman, and Crio-O are available. So, before getting started with Kubernetes, you should have a thorough understanding of container technologies. It will help you to connect the concepts properly. I would like to suggest you to go through one container technology training like Docker.

Ques. Is Docker easy to learn?

Ans. Yes, it is an easy course.

Ques. Can I learn Kubernetes without Docker?

Ans. As Kubernetes is a container orchestrator, it needs a container runtime in order to orchestrate

Ques. Should I learn Docker swarm or Kubernetes?

Ans. Kubernetes is a complex system. It provides strong cluster state guarantees and unified APIs at the cluster level, making it more difficult to manage scaling behavior. Docker Swarm, at least for inexperienced operators, can be used to deploy and scale containers much faster and easier.
