Docker is a great tool for running and orchestrating software. However, in order to effectively use Docker, you need to know how to run an app using Docker. In this learning activity, you will learn how to dockerize an app. You will create a Docker image for an application and run the image as a Docker container. After completing this exercise, you should have a basic knowledge of how to configure an existing application to use Docker.

What are Hands-On Labs?

Hands-On Labs are scenario-based learning environments where learners can practice without consequences. Don't compromise a system or waste money on expensive downloads. Practice real-world skills without the real-world risk, no assembly required.
