Course description

Supporting the adoption of container technology and container-native applications

The Container Adoption Boot Camp (DO700) immerses you in intensive, hands-on development of container-native applications deployed on Red Hat's implementation of Kubernetes, Red Hat® OpenShift® Container Platform. As part of enrollment, you will receive one year of Red Hat Learning Subscription Standard, which gives you unlimited access to all of our courses online, plus up to five certification exams and two retakes.

This collection of courses is based on Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform 3.9 and Red Hat® Enterprise Linux® 7.5.

The Container Adoption Boot Camp (DO700) is for those seeking to make a quantum leap in their journey toward digital transformation. Making this shift involves developing software in tight iterations so that business value can be realized sooner. In order to accomplish this goal, this offering can facilitate the adoption of container-native applications, including microservices.

Course content summary

  • Introduction to Containers, Kubernetes, and Red Hat OpenShift
  • Configuring a Red Hat OpenShift cluster
  • Describing advanced features of Red Hat OpenShift
  • Containerizing software applications
  • Developing microservices with MicroProfile
  • Developing microservices with Red Hat® OpenShift Application Runtimes

Audience for this course

This collection of courses is designed for application developers and software architects interested in adopting container technology and container-native applications.

Prerequisites for this curriculum

  • Complete Red Hat Application Development I: Programming in Java EE (JB183) or demonstrate equivalent Java EE experience
  • Be proficient in using an integrated development environment such as Red Hat Developer Studio or Eclipse
  • Experience with Maven is recommended, but not required
  • Be able to use a Linux terminal session and issue operating system commands
  • Become a Red Hat Certified System Administrator (RHCSA), or demonstrate equivalent experience
  • Have experience with web application architectures and their corresponding technologies
  • Have a comfort level with the Red Hat Enterprise Linux command-line interface and bash scripting

To be fully prepared for this boot camp, you will be required to complete the following chapters from DO180: Introduction to Containers, Kubernetes, and Red Hat Openshift

  • Chapter 1: Getting started with container technology
  • Chapter 2: Creating containerized services
  • Chapter 3: Managing containers
  • Chapter 4: Managing container images

This prerequisite work will be completed in Red Hat Learning Subscription, which will be available to you two (2) weeks prior to the course start date. More information on the prerequisite work requirements for this boot camp, as well as post-class work requirements, will be supplied to you after enrollment.

Impact on the organization

Microservices are a new alternative to designing modern applications, focused on working with less hardware resources and, therefore, reducing infrastructure costs. Many organizations are struggling with how to make the move from monolithic applications to applications based on microservices, as well as how to reorganize their development paradigm to reap the benefits of microservice development in a DevOps economy. In particular, many organizations are invested in Java programming frameworks and OpenShift.

This curriculum is intended to develop the skills needed to create microservices architectures using Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform, a cloud solution that leverages the usage of microservices running on containers. The curriculum develops the skills needed to install, configure, and manage OpenShift to deploy containerized applications that are highly available, resilient, and scalable. You will learn to containerize software applications and efficiently deploy them to an OpenShift cluster, allowing you to take advantage of a platform and architecture that fosters DevOps principles in your organization.

Red Hat has created this course in a way intended to benefit our customers, but each company and infrastructure is unique, and actual results or benefits may vary.

Impact on the individual
