This webinar will show you how to containerize a web application from scratch. We’ll take a sample web application written in PHP and deploy it inside a Docker container, using a step-by-step approach that developers of all levels can follow.

First, we’ll use a Dockerfile to create a custom Docker image capable of running the PHP application. Using docker-compose, we’ll configure and deploy the container either locally or on a cloud server.

Finally, we’ll explore orchestrating large-scale deployment on a production-grade container platform. We’ll use Docker Swarm to manage a cluster of containers running the application and keep them available, scalable and fault tolerant.

Attending this webinar, you’ll gain hands-on experience building, deploying and managing containers. You’ll learn how to package applications in containers, boost portability across environments, and leverage container orchestration for simplified devops. Join us as we dive into containerizing a web app from the ground up.
