This video course will walk you through a basic deployment-pipeline setup in Jenkins. You will then learn how to create two minimal Docker environments: one for development and one for production. You will then set up Jenkins inside a Docker container to support and automate your deployment pipeline. Next^ you will learn how to provide reliability and scalability to your application by setting up a cluster of Docker hosts using Docker s Swarm mode^ and then automate the deployment of Docker hosts using Chef. Finally^ you will monitor^ log^ and manage your Docker containers. Towards the end of this video course^ you will work with the various components required to run Docker in production.
