- [Narrator] Containers have been used by programmers in the Linux community for a while now. But for this course, you don't need to be a programmer or a Linux pro. As we look at the operation sides of containers however, there will be a few things that will help you get the most out of this course. For example, an understanding of Windows Server will be useful. In this course, we'll be installing features, configuring networks, using the NETSH command, and we'll be doing a bit of work in PowerShell.
I will demonstrate all of these processes for those less familiar, but a strong foundation would help. I said that you don't need to be a programmer and I stand by that. It would be useful to have a basic understanding of the development process and how network applications are deployed. I will give real world examples and scenarios, but the number of aha moments that await you will increase as you connect these features with practical applications of your own.
All of the demonstrations in this course were created on a single Windows 2016 Server with only two virtual machines. It doesn't take a lot of horsepower to follow along or to create your own containers experiments. So I encourage you, take this technology for a test drive during and after this course.
