Run Containers at Scale with Docker and Docker Swarm
TetraNoodle is building one of the most comprehensive course on Docker and Docker Swarm from scratch
This project will only be funded if it reaches its goal by Fri, February 22 2019 5:41 PM UTC +00:00.
We now live in a world that is unchained, where we are not bound to a desk to fulfil our tasks. We are a community of people who are constantly on the go and because of that we have now learnt how to work on the go. This is why technologies that are in tandem with this lifestyle are becoming insanely popular.
Docker is one such technology for developers and system architects! The days of depending on heavy-duty desktop systems or lugging power draining virtual systems are long gone! Now, we can depend on containerization to help us not only to build our apps, but also to manage and deploy them!
This is exactly why we are striving to build this course – a step-by-step manual to help you not only to learn Docker but to master it. We have designed a practical syllabus that breaks down Docker from the very beginning. It will help you learn what Docker is, the important aspects of Docker such as Swarm and also how to get the most out of your Docker containers.
Before we delve any deeper into the course, let’s first take a look at what Docker and Docker Swarm actually are!
What is Docker & Docker Swarm?
Docker is an open source containerization system that works similar to a virtual system but without the hassles of having to build an entire virtual system from scratch. This amazing tool allows developers to use the same configuration settings of the Linux kernel on which they are working on with any other Linux system. It is completely compatible with any and all Linux systems.
Docker also allows developers to wrap their application along with everything it needs to run, such as libraries and other dependencies, into a neat little package that they can then ship and run on any other Linux system, regardless of that system’s kernel, version or configuration settings. This makes it easier for them to build, run and deploy their apps.
Docker Swarm, on the other hand, is a tool that is helpful after you have already built your containers. It helps maintain and schedule the different Docker containers so that developers can manage a cluster of Docker containers as one virtual system. So, instead of having to work on multiple different containers, developers can treat a group of containers as one easy unit.
Benefits of Docker
- Open Source – Docker is an open source software which means that in addition to being free, it also allows developers to add features to the technology depending on their needs.
- Containers vs. Virtual Machine – Where virtual machines take a greater toll on the system, containers make it easier to simply wrap the applications and all of its files to make it easily deployable on any other Linux system.
- Fast Adoption – Docker is one of the technologies that is being adopted at an extremely fast rate. The adoption rate is similar on both personal as well as enterprise levels.
- Faster & Less Load on RAM – Since containers already pack everything they need to run the application, they don’t add a lot of load on the system and are extremely fast when it comes to setup and running.
- Easier Deployment – Containers also make it easier to deploy apps as well as maintain them.
Features of This Course
Now that you know what Docker and Docker Swarm really is, let’s take a look at what you’ll get in this particular course!
Our Mastering Docker and Docker Swarm course has been designed for all, developers and enthusiasts alike; starting at the very beginning with what is Docker, best uses of Docker and what type of people will benefit from this course. From there it delves deeper into everything you need to know about Docker, containers and how to work with them.
The course has been broken down into 7 different modules that cover everything you need to know about Docker.
Module 1 – Introduction & Overview
The first module will focus on the basics of the course and Docker covering topics such as what you are going to learn, why we need Docker, who uses Docker, resources, etc.
Module 2 – Getting Started with Docker
The second module will focus more in detail on the Docker Platform, including how to download it, basic commands, creating and modifying containers, how to create Docker images and much more.
Module 3 – Docker: Networking & Compose
The third module will focus on building Docker networks and will include topics such as what is networking, Docker networking basics, how to create user-defined networks, how to add containers to networks, etc.
Module 4 – Jenkins & Docker Plugins
The fourth module includes topics on Continuous Integration, Continuous Delivery, Jenkins, as well as Deploying containers on networks such as AWS and Jenkins. It will cover a wide range of information on working with Docker plugins and deploying them through different technologies.
Module 5 – Docker Swarm: Architecture & Setup
The fifth module will focus mostly on Docker Swarm and everything you need to know about Swarm such as what Docker Swarm is, what is container orchestration, swarm nodes, architectures, creating replicas, modifying and services and so much more.
Module 6 – Docker Swarm: Nodes & Services
The sixth module will help you learn about the nodes and services, getting a greater insight into all that you can do with Docker Swarm.
Module 7 – Docker Swarm: Strategies & Advanced Commands
The last and final module will focus on more advanced topics. It will help prepare you for more advanced tasks using Docker and Swarm. It will also help you learn different strategies that you can use and build for maintaining and deploying your Docker containers.
If you are still wondering why learning Docker is one of the best things you can do, here are a few statistics to help jolt you to reality!
- According to Datadog, by April 2018, Docker adoption had increased by 23.4% among its customers, up 20% from the year before.
- There are over 2 million Dockerized Apps in the Docker Hub
- Docker deployment size has increased over 75% in one year
- 77,000 growth in Docker job listings in 2017

Risks and challenges
This is just our second attempt at building a course and with this big of a scope, we definitely run the risk of not being able to finish the project on time. However, we have taken preventive measures and work has already started on this project in full force.
We are confident that we will not only make the project delivery on time, but we will also be able to provide you with sneak peaks into the course very soon. We can’t wait to get this project out for you guys.
