Course Overview
Hi everyone. My name is Philippe Collignon, and welcome to my course Packaging Applications with Helm for Kubernetes. I have been working as a freelance DevOps for over 20 years. Helm makes it much easier to install applications in Kubernetes and manage versions so it's definitely worth learning. This course teaches you Helm with a lot of explicit sketches, with a focus on understanding the basic concepts. Moreover, you can practice with a set of 11 labs with source code where you'll learn to use Helm step by step, building a Helm chart, customizing it with templates, and finally installing a production-ready release of a real guestbook application or even a WordPress blog. Some of the major topics that we will cover include building a Helm chart, customizing a chart with Helm templates, managing dependencies and versions, and using Helm repositories. By the end of this course you will be able to build your own Helm chart and install an application release in Kubernetes with Helm. Before beginning the course, you should be familiar with Kubernetes basic concepts, but you don't have to be a Kubernetes expert. In fact, you could also learn Kubernetes best practices by first learning Helm and using existing table Helm charts. I hope you will join me on this journey to learn Helm with the Packaging Applications with Helm for Kubernetes course at Pluralsight.
