Kubernetes Bootcamp

5 days- Hands on

Course Overview

Kubernetes is a Cloud Orchestration Platform, providing reliability, replication and stability, while minimizing resources for applications and services. This course guides students through the Kubernetes architecture, useful commands, containerization and Kubernetes best practices. Each students has access to their own their own high availability kubernetes environment capable of demonstrating the “K8s” features discussed in the lecture portion of the course. This is a “Lab Intensive” hands-on course.

What You'll Learn

Students will learn how to deploy services on Kubernetes. First you will learn the Kubernetes architecture, and functionality of each component. Following a review of containerization, and what it means to the Kubernetes platform you will deep dive into the kubectl command line utility, learning how to administer services on the Kubernetes Cluster. Students will follow a storyline, beginning with a newly installed K8s cluster, where they will deploy a new microservice from start to finish. The journey will take you through all the steps to deploy stateless and stateful services. You will deploy and test jobs, storage, and deployment services, learning how to manage K8s replication services. Troubleshooting and testing are taught as the course progresses. At the end of the class, you will experiment with deployment automation using Helm and Tiller. When completed, you will be able to develop, test, and run new services on a Kubernetes cloud.
