Course Overview

Containerization has taken the IT world by storm, in the last few years. Large software houses, starting from Google and Amazon, are running significant portions of their production load in containers.  Kubernetes is an open-source system for automating deployment, scaling, and management of containerized applications. Kubernetes groups containers that make up an application into logical units for easy management and discovery. Kubernetes builds upon 15 years of experience of running production workloads at Google, combined with best-of-breed ideas and practices from the community.

Introduction to Kubernetes is a hands-on workshop style course that teaches participants core features and functionality of Kubernetes. Students will exit the course knowing how to build a Kubernetes cluster, and how to deploy and manage applications on that cluster.

Learning Objectives

This course is approximately 50% hands-on lab to lecture ratio, combining engaging expert lessons, demos and group discussions with real-world, skills-focused machine-based labs and exercises.  Working in a hands-on learning environment led by our expert facilitator, students will explore:

  • What a Kubernetes cluster is, and how to deploy and manage them on-premises and in the cloud.
  • How Kubernetes fits into the cloud-native ecosystem, and how it interfaces with other important technologies such as Docker.
  • The major Kubernetes components that let us deploy and manage applications in a modern cloud-native fashion.
  • How to define and manage applications with declarative manifest files that should be version-controlled and treated like code.

Need different skills or topics?  If your team requires different topics or tools, additional skills or custom approach, this course may be further adjusted to accommodate.  Our team can help design the course or learning path that best meets your needs and skills goals.
