What You Will Learn

  1. Server Deployment and Containerization

    1 month to complete

    Develop an understanding of containerized environments, use Docker to share and store containers, and deploy a Docker container to AWS Elastic Kubernetes Service using the CI/CD pipeline.

    Prerequisite knowledge

    Basic Computer Programming, Basic SQL

    1. Containers

      Describe and explain the benefits and use cases for containerized environments. Install Docker on a local machine and define a container environment using a Dockerfile.Download and launch a Docker container. Store and share a docker container.

      • AWS & Kubernetes

        Introduce AWS and commonly used services: S3, EC2, and IAM. Create AWS resources using both AWS console and AWS command-line interface (CLI). Describe and explain container orchestration—how it works and the general use case. Describe and explain how Kubernetes manages container clusters. Create an EKS Cluster using AWS console and Eksctl (CLI)and manage Kubernetes clusters using the Kubectl (CLI).

        • Deployment Using CI/CD

          Deploy an application to the EKS cluster. Use Cloudformation to create AWS resources using a YAML script. Implement an end-to-end continuous integration (CI) and continuous delivery (CD) pipeline using AWS CodePipeline and AWS CodeBuild services.

          • Course Project: Deploy a Flask App to Kubernetes Using EKS

            Create a container for a Flask web app using Docker and deploy the container to a Kubernetes cluster using Amazon EKS. By the end of the project, you will have deployed your application live to the world, where it should be accessible by IP address. You'll use automated testing to prevent bad code from being deployed and monitor their app’s performance using AWS tools.
