exactly what in 11 reviews

The course is exactly what I was looking for.

Exactly what I was looking for.

This tutorial is exactly what I was looking for!

This course is exactly what I was looking for, James is an excellent teacher, each concept is explained thoroughly.

There are a few things that could add a lot of value to the content: 1-how to auto scale a cluster depending on workload (i.e if the API is overwhelmed, spin another container and take over some of the traffic) 2-more in-depth discussion of how the underlying mechanics of Docker work Because this is exactly what I needed in the first week of using Docker at work, though it ended so fast I was a little bit surprised.

I have learned exactly what i have expected.

I found that this course delivered exactly what I needed to develop an understanding and gain familiarity with the concepts.

real life in 9 reviews

When applying in real life, I experienced a lot of questions that is not mentioned in the course.

It was a good experience but need more practical example from real life .

Although I would have like to see more real life use cases where these containers would have been applicable.

Great lectures, give a broad understanding of both docker with real life examples.

The Instructor also covers some best pratices of using Docker in real life scenarios which I have been waiting to learn for a while time.

All docker concepts are explained in details and with real life examples.

These lectures are way more helpful than the ones I've attended in real life.
