The pre-work for this course was to have “a laptop with a browser installed”, and the prerequisite was “basic knowledge of linux containers”. Both of these are WAY off, IMO. I spent 45 minutes just trying to get BASH installed on my windows laptop (the browser shell didn’t work because of my laptops proxy settings, I think, and Windows Subsystem for Linux involves way more than the instructore realized). I could have (and certainly would have) done a LOT of this work ahead of time. I’m very frustrated. I came to this conference looking forward to learning more about Kubernetes, and instead, I missed the boat entirely, and was completely lost the entire time.

- Have better and more extensive prework instructions (for instance, install BASH, and run these 5-10 commands)
- Change “basic knowledge of linux containers” to something a little more realistic.
- Include an “intro to Kubernetes” section so people have some context.
