It is not compulsory to learn Docker before you get started with Kubernetes, although it is highly recommended that you do. Getting an in-depth training in at least one container technology (like Docker) is a good idea because container technologies and Kubernetes work well together.

In early December 2020, the contributors to Kubernetes (K8) announced that version 1.20 has deprecated Docker. They are shifting the focus from Container Runtime Interface (CRI) as the runtime for containers instead of Docker. This means that production support for Docker will stop at some point in the future.

All you need to do is enroll for a docker training and certification program of your choice. Once you satisfy all the course requirements and complete all the modules, you will be a certified professional.

Yes! As per Sysdig's Cloud-Native Security and Usage Report for 2022, Docker has captured 21% of all containers in use. It is also the top container management software for 2022 as per developers.

You need a score of above 70% to pass the docker certification exam.

Both Kubernetes and Docker are different tools. Docker is the leader in terms of containerizing applications while Kubernetes is a platform for managing containerized applications and services. It's better to enroll for the best docker course first and then learn Kubernetes.

There are several online training providers that offer excellent Docker training. Whether they are the best docker training for you depends upon the course curriculum, instructors, affordability, flexibility of schedules, and many other factors.

Some of the best docker books to opt for in 2022 are as follows:

  • The Docker Book by James Turnbull
  • Docker in Action (2nd Edition) by Jeff Nicoloff
  • Learning Docker by Pethuru Raj, Vinod Singh, and Jeeva S. Chelladhurai

However, it's a good idea to pair these books with a docker complete course so that you can learn more efficiently.

The overall docker certification cost must be split into two parts: the cost of a Docker training program and the cost of the docker certified associate exam. While the former varies based on the training provider you choose the cost of the DCA exam is $195.

What Learners Are Saying

Huu Qui NGUYEN QA Automation consultant
The course Introduction to Docker was good, It gives us an overview on how to use Docker in the industry. We had some good examples to create our own images but some other examples that were not working, we lost some time figuring out why it's not working. The slides / examples should be revisited and updated. But overall the course topics were Interesting Docker/ Docker Compose/ Docker swarm...
