Empower Your Development: Dive into Docker’s Comprehensive Learning Ecosystem

Continuous learning is a necessity for developers in today’s fast-paced development landscape. Docker recognizes the importance of keeping developers at the forefront of innovation, and to do so, we aim to empower the developer community with comprehensive learning resources.

Docker has taken a multifaceted approach to developer education by forging partnerships with renowned platforms like Udemy and LinkedIn Learning, investing in our own documentation and guides, and highlighting the incredible learning content created by the developer community, including Docker Captains.

Commitment to developer learning

At Docker, our goal is to simplify the lives of developers, which begins with empowering devs with understanding how to maximize the power of Docker tools throughout their projects. We also recognize that developers have different learning styles, so we are taking a diversified approach to delivering this material across an array of platforms and formats, which means developers can learn in the format that best suits them. 

Strategic partnerships for developer learning

Recognizing the diverse learning needs of developers, Docker has partnered with leading online learning platforms — Udemy and LinkedIn Learning. These partnerships offer developers access to a wide range of courses tailored to different expertise levels, from beginners looking to get started with Docker to advanced users aiming to deepen their knowledge. 

For teams already utilizing these platforms for other learning needs, this collaboration places Docker learning in a familiar platform next to other coursework.

  • Udemy: Docker’s collaboration with Udemy highlights an array of Endorsed Docker courses, designed by industry experts. Whether getting a handle on containerization or mastering Docker with Kubernetes, Udemy’s platform offers the flexibility and depth developers need to upskill at their own pace. Today, demand remains high for Docker content across the Udemy platform, with more than 350 courses offered and nearly three million enrollments to date.
  • LinkedIn Learning: Through LinkedIn Learning, developers can dive into curated Docker courses to earn a Docker Foundations Professional Certificate once they complete the program. These resources are not just about technical skills; they also cover best practices and practical applications, ensuring learners are job-ready.

Leveraging Docker’s documentation and guides

Although third-party platforms provide comprehensive learning paths, Docker’s own documentation and guides are indispensable tools for developers. Our documentation is continuously updated to serve as both a learning resource and a reference. From installation and configuration to advanced container orchestration and networking, Docker’s guides are designed to help you find your solution with step-by-step walk-throughs.

If it’s been a while since you’ve checked out Docker Docs, you can visit docs.docker.com to find manuals, a getting started guide, along with many new use-case guides to help you with advanced applications including generative AI and security.  

Learners interested in live sessions can register for upcoming live webinars and training on the Docker Training site. There, you will find sessions where you can interact with the Docker support team and discuss best practices for using Docker Scout and Docker Admin.

The role of community in learning

Docker’s community is a vibrant ecosystem of learners, contributors, and innovators. We are thrilled to see the community creating content, hosting workshops, providing mentorship, and enriching the vast array of Docker learning resources. In particular, Docker Captains stand out for their expertise and dedication to sharing knowledge. From James Spurin’s Dive Into Docker course, to Nana Janashia’s Docker Crash Course, to Vladimir Mikhalev’s blog with guided IT solutions using Docker (just to name a few), it’s clear there’s much to learn from within the community.

We encourage developers to join the community and participate in conversations to seek advice, share knowledge, and collaborate on projects. You can also check out the Docker Community forums and join the Slack community to connect with other members of the community.


Docker’s holistic approach to developer learning underscores our commitment to empowering developers with knowledge and skills. By combining our comprehensive documentation and guides with top learning platform partnerships and an active community, we offer developers a robust framework for learning and growth. We encourage you to use all of these resources together to build a solid foundation of knowledge that is enhanced with new perspectives and additional insights as new learning offerings continue to be added.

Whether you’re a novice eager to explore the world of containers or a seasoned pro looking to refine your expertise, Docker’s learning ecosystem is designed to support your journey every step of the way.

Join us in this continuous learning journey, and come learn with Docker.
