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.
Getting Started with 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.
This in an introductory-level class for intermediate skilled team members.
