What you will need

  • There are no specific pre-requisites for this course, however, having some knowledge of Kubernetes such as running through the Kubernetes Quickstart would be beneficial. This course uses the command line a great deal so you should be comfortable connecting to a cloud playground server and working in the command line.

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.
