Linux basics and Networking basics should be enough.
Absolutely yes. Most of the engineers experienced in containers probably already know what we provide here.
Most of the time, you'll use your own device - We provide installation guidelines for Linux, OSX and Windows. At least 2vCPUs and 8GiBs of RAM recommended. Our labs are also designed to be ran on DigitalOcean droplets, offloading the heavy lifting from your device.
No, unfortunately, this course won't provide you any certificate. You don't need any to become an Docker specialist though ;)
Whenever you wish - learn in your own pace, and on your own rules.
