Kubernetes Advanced

Kubernetes Advanced

Learn the technology that is revolutionizing DevOps

In this 2-day hands-on workshop we will focus on advanced Kubernetes concepts and features. Next, over the course of multiple exercises we walk you through taking a demo application from a naive deployment to improving it step by step, implementing best practices.

Who should attend?

This workshop is for Software developers, DevOps engineers and Application architects who are already running Kubernetes and want to further develop their knowledge and understand how advanced features can be used to make application development more agile, improve availability and sustainability. This course focuses on the architectural and operational side of running mission critical applications on Kubernetes.

What can I expect from the workshop?

After this workshop you will have an overview of the advanced features of Kubernetes. You will have practiced deploying, updating and exposing an application running on a cluster, and be able to understand the reasons behind and how to implement best practices for production grade apps on Kubernetes.
