Prerequisites nowhere to be found?

Hi, Samuel here, two things,

  1. Is this course part of a track yet?
  2. Where are the prerequisites? There are nowhere to be found on the "Course page".

Hi Samuel,

I don't think the course is part of any Track yet.

As for the prerequisites, the way I understand it is if you have already completed the course(s) that are recommended as being prerequisites for a course, they will not show up on the course home page. If you have not completed them, they will be listed there.
This has caused confusion in the past, but has been brought to the attention of the staff and will be forwarded to the Devs for further consideration. For now, if you can't see any, you can be fairly confident that you have the prerequisites done already.

Keep Coding! :) :dizzy:

Thanks for your response. I had the same question.

can the prerequisites be shown still with a check mark so people can know what was required?

He also mentioned links for how to install docker in the same sentence. They are nowhere to be found as well.

Hiya there! I dont think there should be any pre-requisites for Docker course, except for how to work with command line. Docker is just one of many Dev Tool which helps Devs to optimize their development process. Docker is simply a Linux like container which is a solution for It works on my machine. It gives everyone the same Dev environment where everyone in the team can work on same project yet on different environment. Of course it ships with more features than that . Its just a tool like Git. But if you're familiar with any Frameworks and have been developing projects on your own., then you might play around this tool. Thats all there is to Docker. (:
