About the course

The Kubernetes API and the API server control access to all resources within your Kubernetes Cluster – even for other cluster resources. As a RESTful HTTP API, the Kubernetes API is responsible for handling all valid client requests, whether from an internal or external source, and returning the appropriate response. In this course, I’ll give you the full picture on this critical interface: what it is, what it does, and how to use it effectively. You’ll even learn valuable techniques that allow you to engineer the API to troubleshoot manifests as well as generate syntactically correct ones in YAML. Best of all, this course contains numerous hands-on labs to give you the experience you’ll need to not only fully grasp the Kubernetes API concepts, but efficiently put them to use.

What are Hands-on Labs

What's the difference between theoretical knowledge and real skills? Practical real-world experience. That's where Hands-on Labs come in! Hands-on Labs are guided, interactive experiences that help you learn and practice real-world scenarios in real cloud environments. Hands-on Labs are seamlessly integrated in courses, so you can learn by doing.
