In this hands-on lab, you are a DevOps engineer working for ABC Solutions. For the last month, your team has been working to complete a dev project for a customer. They are ready to deploy the app to AWS, but the client has come back with a last-minute request. They would like to have the app Dockerized.

You have been given the login info for their Docker server. You will use Packer to build the Docker image and then create a container using the image.

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.
