Containers are here and we need a way to manage them. Kubernetes has emerged as one of the most important and exciting container management platforms. In this course, Getting Started with Kubernetes, you'll learn the fundamentals of Kubernetes and the 'Kubernetes way'. First, you'll dive into Kubernetes architecture, what the main components and services are, and how they come together to build a production-class container infrastructure. Next, you'll learn how to install and deploy Kubernetes on several cloud platforms. Finally, you'll delve into working with pods, deployments, and services. By the end of this course, you'll have a solid understanding of what Kubernetes is and how it works, as well as skills to deploy a Kubernetes cluster and simple applications.

Course Overview
Containers. They've got to be about as hot as it gets in the IT world right now. But containers need managing. Oh my goodness do they need managing! And Kubernetes, well, it's one of, if not the hottest container management technology out there, and it's got a future as bright as anything I've known, so I'm pretty excited to be bringing you this course. So, it's Getting Started with Kubernetes. And whether you've got an immediate and pressing need to learn Kubernetes for your job, or if you're just looking to add a string to your belt and stay ahead of the curve, this is the course for you. It's going to be fast paced, heavy on demos, crystal clear on the theory, and definitely no death by PowerPoint. No chance. By the end, right, you'll know all the theory and practical of what I think are the most fundamental parts of Kubernetes. Now, you're not going to be experts by the end, but you will be in possession of the knowledge and skills necessary to kick‑start your Kubernetes journey. Okay, well, I'm Nigel, and I'm going to be your instructor. And in case you don't know me, I am a container‑holic. I live it large in the container world and have done for some time. I mean, check out my long list of Docker courses. I live and breathe this kind of stuff. But you know what? I've also got a solid enterprise background. I serve my time in some of the most demanding and high‑pressure environments that the likes of finance and government work can offer, and I've got the scars to prove it. So this is not going to be some head‑in‑the‑clouds type of course from a guy who doesn't know the real world. Anyway, look, containers are hot, Kubernetes is hot, and I am excited to get cracking with this course.
