Building Microservices with Spring Cloud and Docker Training Course


Spring Cloud is an open-source lightweight microservices framework for building Java applications for the cloud.

Docker is an open-source platform for building, shipping and running applications inside containers. Docker lends itself well to the creation of microservice applications.

In this instructor-led, live training, participants will learn the fundamentals of building microservices using Spring Cloud and Docker. Participant knowledge is put to the test through exercises and the step-by-step development of sample microservices.

By the end of this training, participants will be able to:

  • Understand the fundamentals of microservices.
  • Use Docker to build containers for microservice applications.
  • Build and deploy containerized microservices using Spring Cloud and Docker.
  • Integrate microservices with discovery services and the Spring Cloud API Gateway.
  • Use Docker Compose for end-to-end integration testing.

Format of the course
