Containers are here and we need a way to manage them. Kubernetes has emerged as one of the most important and exciting container management platforms. In this course, Getting Started with Kubernetes, you'll learn the fundamentals of Kubernetes and the 'Kubernetes way'. First, you'll dive into Kubernetes architecture, what the main components and services are, and how they come together to build a production-class container infrastructure. Next, you'll learn how to install and deploy Kubernetes on several cloud platforms. Finally, you'll delve into working with pods, deployments, and services. By the end of this course, you'll have a solid understanding of what Kubernetes is and how it works, as well as skills to deploy a Kubernetes cluster and simple applications.

Containers. They’ve gotta be about as hot as it gets in the IT world right now. But containers need managing – oh my goodness do they need managing. And Kubernetes....... Well it’s one of..... if not the hottest container management technology out there. And it’s got a future as bright as anything I’ve known. So I’m pretty exited to be bringing you this course.

So it’s Getting Started with Kubernetes. And whether you’ve got an immediate and pressing need to learn Kubernetes for your job..... or if you’re just looking to add a string to your bow and stay ahead of the curve.... This is the course for you.

So it’s gonna be fast-paced – heavy on demos, crystal clear on the theory..... and definitely no death by Powerpoint – no chance!. By the end right..... you’ll know the theory and the practical of what I think are the most fundamental parts of Kubernetes. Now you won’t be an expert. But you will be in possession of the knowledge and skills necessary to kickstart your Kubernetes journey.

Anyway..... I’m Nigel. And I’m gonna be your instructor. And in case you don’t know me.... I’m a container-holic. I live it large in the container world. And have done for some time. I mean check out my long list of Docker courses.... I live and breathe this kinda stuff.

But you know what..... I’ve got a solid enterprise background.I served my time in some of the most demanding and high pressure environments the likes of finance, government work can offer.... And I’ve got the scars to prove it. So this isn’t gonna be some head in the clouds type course from a guy who doesn’t know the real world.

Anyway, look. Containers are hot. Kubernetes is hot. And I’m excited to get cracking with this course!
