The training environment:

Target audience

All software developers and DevOps engineers with fundamentals of software development and IT systems.


Learning by doing is one of the most important paradigms. More about the training methodology here.


Participants each use a prepared training instance in the cloud. This means that there is no setup effort during the training! An SSH client such as Putty is required.
Prior knowledge of container technologies such as Docker is recommended, e.g. completion of the play-with-docker beginner training

Containers are using existing Linux mechanisms, basic Linux knowledge is needed. Completion of is recommended.
