Get started quickly with Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL2) today! Learn how to spin up Docker containers on your computer and use the fantastic new Windows Terminal.

Microsoft now ships Windows 10 with a Linux Kernel! Amazing to see how Microsoft have changed in recent years. No longer do they hate Linux, but they have now embraced it. You can learn Linux, Docker and other technologies easily using WSL 2.

WARNING: There are still issues running WSL 2 with VMware Workstation and VirtualBox. Don't use WSL 2 if you needed nested virtualization with those hypervisors. Hopefully this will be resolved soon.

This course focuses on the following:

- WSL 2

- Docker using WSL 2

- Windows Terminal

- VSCode

I don't try to teach you everything about Linux, Docker or Windows. I'm only showing you how you can leverage these technologies to do amazing things. This course consists of practical demonstrations which you can follow - the best way to learn is hands-on learning, so follow me and set this up yourself.
