Container Adoption Boot Camp for Developers


Course description

Supporting the adoption of container technology through the development of container-native applications

The Container Adoption Boot Camp for Developers (DO720) 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 boot camp 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.

This collection of courses is based on Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform 4.10.
