About the course

Kubernetes is a powerful tool. It can help you manage complex applications and provides you with the ability to easily automate tasks involved in managing them.

In this course, we will explore Kubernetes from a beginner’s standpoint. We will discuss what Kubernetes is and what it does and work with some of the basic functionality of Kubernetes hands-on. We will build a simple Kubernetes cluster. We will also deploy a sample microservice application to the cluster in order to explore how Kubernetes can help easily manage such applications.

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.
