Course Overview

Nowadays, we have different applications to go about our daily life: booking a cab, ordering food, scheduling an appointment, and so on. The companies creating and providing these apps continuously listen to their customers and come up with new features to address their concerns. In such an app-driven world, containers and microservices seem to be the perfect home for an application. With containers, we bundle an application with all its dependencies and deploy it on the platform of our choice, be it Bare-Metal, VM, Cloud, etc.
