Kubernetes Fundamentals and Cluster Operations (KFCO)

 

Course Overview

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

Who should attend

Anyone who is preparing to build and run Kubernetes clusters

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 YAML files that define Kubernetes objects
  • 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 how to troubleshoot issues with deployments on Kubernetes
  • Apply resource requests, limits, and probes to deployments
  • Manage dynamic application configuration using ConfigMaps and Secrets
  • Deploy other workloads, including DaemonSets, Jobs, and CronJobs
  • Learn about user-facing security using SecurityContext, RBAC, and NetworkPolicies
