What you'll will learn

What you’ll learn in this course

This course is intended for system administrators and application developers who are interested in deploying and orchestrating container applications at scale and have a basic understanding of containers, mainly docker, and want to understand the basic concepts of Kubernetes and it is internal processes.
The course starts with a small refresher on what containers are and afterwards it goes and presents the kubernetes architecture and it is main components.

Next, each student will create it is own Kubernetes cluster and also submit workloads under a common cluster across all students simulating a more production like environment. Kubernetes resources like pod, deployment, services, volumes, and many more are presented alongside with their major features and each student will have the chance to create and use them in the hands-on laboratories which are at the end of each chapter.


Course Objectives

After completing this course, students will have a firm understating of the main components of a kubernetes cluster

and also on some kubernetes resources like pod, deployment, services, volumes.
