The course begins with an overview of Kubernetes primitives and DevOps concepts. You'll understand how Kubernetes can assist you with overcoming a wide range of real-world operation challenges. You will get to grips with creating and upgrading a cluster, and then learn how to deploy, update, and scale an application on Kubernetes. As you advance through the chapters, you’ll be able to monitor an application by setting up a pod failure alert on Prometheus. The course will also guide you in configuring Alert manager to send alerts to the Slack channel and trace down a problem on the application using kubectl commands. By the end of this course, you’ll be able to manage the lifecycle of simple to complex applications on Kubernetes with confidence.

Duration: 3 Days


Introduction to DevOps with Kubernetes focuses on leading you with engaging projects that have a direct correlation to how DevOps developers work on Kubernetes in the real world. You’ll not only learn concepts, but you’ll also build out example portfolio pieces and tackle intellectual challenges that prepare you for technical screenings and complex software lifecycle problems.
