Containers are here and Kubernetes is the de facto platform for running and managing them.
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 get Kubernetes on your laptop as well as a couple of cloud platforms.
Finally, you'll deploy an application to Kubernetes using Pods, Services and Deployments. You'll scale the app, test self-healing, perform a rolling update, and finish with a versioned rollback.
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 Getting Started with Kubernetes. This is going to be one heck of a ride. Well, I'm Nigel Poulton. And if you don't already know me, I am a bit of a container geek, but I've done everything from programming to sysadmin to technical architect in some of the most high pressure and demanding environments in the world. But, these days I am all about cloud and containers. I'm a Docker Captain, author of Docker and Kubernetes books, and, of course, I have got a ton of courses here on Pluralsight. But enough about me. What about the course? Well, whether you've got an immediate pressing need to learn Kubernetes for your job or maybe you're just looking to add a string to your bow and stay ahead of the curve, this is the course for you, and no prior Kubernetes experience necessary. It is fast paced, heavy on the demos, crystal clear on the theory, and a lot of fun. And by the end, you absolutely will have everything you need to take your next steps with confidence and power forward in your career. Honestly, your mind is going to be blown with how much you learn. Speaking of which, we'll deploy an application to Kubernetes, expose it to the internet, scale it up and down, test self healing, and perform a zero‑downtime rolling update and a version rollback. And when you're done, you'll be itching to take your next steps. So, containers are hot, Kubernetes is hot, and I am excited to get cracking with this Getting Started with Kubernetes course, at Pluralsight. Let's do this.
