Kubernetes Foundations (KF)

 

Course Overview

This two-day course is the first step in learning about Containers and Kubernetes. Through a series of lectures and lab exercises, the fundamental concepts of Kubernetes will be presented and put to practice by containerizing and deploying a two-tier application into Kubernetes.

Who should attend

Anyone involved with using or building a Kubernetes cluster

Prerequisites

  • Linux concepts and command line proficiency
  • General networking proficiency

Course Objectives

By the end of the course, you should be able to meet the following objectives:

  • Build, test, and publish Docker container images
  • Become familiar with authoring YAML files and its syntax
  • Understand Kubernetes core user-facing concepts, including Pods, Services, and Deployments
  • Use kubectl the Kubernetes CLI, and become familiar with its commands and options
  • Understand the architecture of Kubernetes (Control plane and its components, worker nodes, and kubelet)
  • Learn to debug issues with application deployments on Kubernetes
  • Apply resource requests, limits, and probes to deployments
  • Manage dynamic application configuration using ConfigMaps and Secrets
  • Deploy other workloads, including StatefulSets, DaemonSets, Jobs, CronJobs
  • Learn about user-facing security best practices using ServiceAccounts, RBAC, and NetworkPolicies
