Prerequisite knowledge

  • Experience using the Linux command line
  • A basic understanding of containers (useful but not required)
  • No Kubernetes experience required

Materials or downloads needed in advance

  • A WiFi-enabled laptop or tablet with the ability to use SSH and a web browser installed (You'll be provided IPs and credentials for a cloud instance.)

What you'll learn

  • Learn how to use Kubernetes in production


It is a truth universally acknowledged that a techie in possession of any production code whatsoever must be in want of a container orchestration platform. What’s up for debate, according to noted thought leader Jane Austen, is how many pizzas the team is going to eat.

In this hands-on Kubernetes workshop, Bridget Kromhout guides you through an interactive look at all the moving parts you need to know about to use Kubernetes in production. If you’re into dev or ops or some portmanteau thereof, this is relevant to your interests.

The course uses an Azure variant based on the open source Kubernetes training at—whatever public or private cloud you prefer, you’ll learn something valuable. Join us to level up on Kubernetes (and pizza).
