Introduction to Docker
Use Docker to build a web site

For much longer than anyone cares to admit, it was easier to ship a physical container of coffee beans halfway around the world than it was to get all of the necessary bits and pieces needed for a software program from one machine to another. Then came Docker, and the problem was finally solved. This very interesting platform is fun and easy to learn, and gives an entirely new perspective on the world of programming. Plus, it’s another pretty bow to add to your CV.

Your Complete Docker Crash Course

  • Familiarise yourself with the Linux operating system
  • Get to grips with Docker Hub
  • Create your own Wordpress site with Docker

No Linux Experience? No Problem!

This course has been designed for anyone who wants to learn Docker regardless of their experience level, but if you’re not familiar with Linux (which Docker uses), never fear; we’ve included an extensive - but not overwhelming - overview.

You’ll start by taking a look at Docker’s infrastructure and – you’ll be glad to know – how to install it on OSX and Windows. Once that’s done, you’ll learn everything you need to know images and containers, creating an image and running a web server. Then it’s into the nitty gritty of Docker Hub, tag, push and pull images, customising an image, and Docker Commands. You’ll finish off by creating a fully functional Wordpress website and running it, using Docker as the catalyst to make it happen.

With over 25 lectures and 2 hours of content, by the end of this course you’ll know exactly what Docker can do and how do it. Plus, you’ll be posed to use it in scenarios where it will most likely save you plenty of work. Not bad!

About Docker

Basically, Docker allows you to ‘build, ship and run any app, anywhere’. It automates the deployment of apps inside software containers using various features of the Linux operating system (although it can be used on Mac and Windows). Think of it like a shipyard with a big cargo ship – it packages the various pieces of cargo needed for delivery (i.e software), then gets it onto the ship and off to its destination efficiently, safely and in one neat package.

Although only officially released in 2012, AngularJS has taken the world by storm thanks to official support from Google, a community of developers constantly improving it, and some of the internet's biggest websites making use of it. One of its best features is its data binding; dynamic views are automatically updated whenever a model changes, and vice versa. Furthermore, it combines the benefits of deep linking with desktop app-like behaviors, allows you to invent new HTML syntax and is designed to be testable. The result is simplified development and testing of applications and, ultimately, faultless single page and hybrid applications.

Course Overview

This AngularJS crash course is aimed at those who already have a basic understanding of HTML, CSS and Javascript, but who may have limited experience of AngularJS projects. With 3 hours of content and over 50 lectures, it's a fast and efficient way to get yourself up to speed with this framework and start using it in the real world.

This course will allow you to grasp the basic concepts of AngularJS and its main features. You'll be provided with functional examples throughout to compound your learning, giving you the opportunity to put it to practical use.

After an overview of environment setup and MVC architecture, you'll get to grips with the more complex attributes of AngularJS, including modules and dependency injection, controllers, expressions, directives, scopes, filter, routing, and two-way data binding.

From Section 4 onwards, you'll build up a framework for your own dynamic app using bootstrap layouts, filters, list routing and setting parameters. You'll learn how to add useful functions like adding, updating and deleting elements, form validation and more. You'll even tackle debugging with Chrome console and add custom directives to make your HTML as readable as it can be.

By the end of the course, you will be confident enough to begin your own AngularJS projects, using the framework for creating web and hybrid applications of your own. You will have solidified your understanding of the AngularJS language and will be more than capable of putting to real world use with immediate effect.
