Content that is freely accessible is the cornerstone for growing a community and bringing equal opportunity to everyone. Only some have the means to buy these courses, but simultaneously, as a content creator, you must keep your lights on as well. So how do we balance that? With sponsors! Providing free learning resources is necessary, especially for students and beginners who need a place to learn. Free learning resources were my lifeline in school, especially audio-visual ones. 🎥
We decided to sponsor Sid’s DevOps Directive Docker course because we saw his effectiveness as a fantastic teacher. His previous course clearly and concisely explains the steps to leverage Terraform to automate your AWS infrastructure and compliments that with his extensive GitHub repo and website for extra resources. His new Docker course is designed to take you from beginner to pro (or at least as much as possible in only 5 hours! 🤯).
Here are just some of the many topics that he covers:
- The history and motivation behind containers and why Docker has been so successful
- Understanding container data and Docker volumes
- Building container images
- A deep dive into container security
- Development workflow of making setup easier and using Docker Compose
- And, of course, using ephemeral environments for testing, validation and QA 😉
Sid is passionate about this, and I know the hundreds of hours that went into it.
This is an excellent resource for anyone learning more about Docker. The course is easy to follow, making it an excellent resource for beginners. But the content is also relevant to experienced users looking to improve their skills and stay up-to-date with the latest trends in DevOps with a sprinkling of Kubernetes! Simply put, it’s a great way to learn about these topics and improve your skills. 🧑🏫
We hope our sponsorship of Sid’s course will encourage more individuals and developers to grow their skills in this area. By providing free access to high-quality learning resources, we can help level the playing field and allow everyone to succeed in this field.
Check out Sid’s course and follow him on social media to learn more. We’re excited to see what the future holds for DevOps and Docker and are proud to support it!
