Course 794:
Essential Kubernetes:
Using Kubernetes for Deployment

(4 days)


Course Description

Kubernetes is an open-source platform for automating deployment, scaling, and operations of application containers across clusters of hosts, providing container-centric infrastructure. Using lecture (25% of time), hands-on class demonstrations/exercises (40% of time), and hands-on student exercises (35% of time), this course shows students how to us Kubernetes in deploying and managing applications.
