Rapid Docker on AWS out now

Michael Wittig – 16 Oct 2019

As a developer or DevOps engineer, you want to focus on shipping great experiences to your customers. Therefore, we have designed a fast and easy way to bundle your application into Docker containers and run them on Amazon’s worldwide infrastructure in a highly available and scalable manner.

Rapid Docker on AWS is available

Today, we launch our new learning experience Rapid Docker on AWS. We created a short video to show you how it works.

We want to thank Andrew Clark for editing and Philipp Garbe for writing a benevolent foreword. Thanks to all the early birds, who bought the eBook long before we completed all chapters and examples. Thanks for spreading the word!

Experience Rapid Docker on AWS in two ways: Get the eBook with examples if you prefer to learn in self-study. Want to learn together with others? Join us for a 4-week Online Seminar.

Why an Online Seminar?

We experienced it ourselves countless times: Learning a new topic is exhausting, and very often, we break off. Our online seminar is different: it won’t let you fall behind.
