Updated Pluralsight Course – Kubernetes Installation and Configuration Fundamentals

My updated course “Kubernetes Installation and Configuration Fundamentals” is now available on Pluralsight here! If you want to learn about the course, check out the trailer here or if you want to dive right in check it out here

This course targets IT professionals that design and maintain Kubernetes and container based solutions. The course can be used by both the IT pro learning new skills and the system administrator or developer preparing for using Kubernetes both on premises and in the Cloud.

Let’s take your Kubernetes administration and configuration skills to the next level and get you started now!

Key updates to the course include:

  • Using containerd as a container runtime

  • Building clusters with kubeadm and Cluster Configuration Files

  • Using kubectl command options to create workloads and build YAML manifest templates fast such as --dry-run

The modules of the course are:

  • Exploring the Kubernetes Architecture – In this module we introduce Kubernetes, deep dive into each component and its responsibility in a cluster. We also look at higher level abstractions such as Services, Controllers, and Deployments and how they can be used to ensure the desired state of an application deployed in Kubernetes

  • Installing and Configuring Kubernetes – In this module, we learn several ways to install a Kubernetes cluster. We start off simple with an installation using kubeadm using containerd. Then we head off to the Cloud, we look at the current state of the cloud managed Kubernetes services and installation methods for each of the major cloud providers (Google, AWS, and Azure) and perform a cluster deployment using Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS).

  • Working with Your Kubernetes Cluster – In this module, we learn how to interact with our cluster. We learn how to use and configure the primary tool for communicating with Kubernetes clusters, kubectl. We then learn how to perform a simple application Deployment both imperatively and declaratively in our Kubernetes cluster. And also learn how to use kubectl to generated YAML manifests for cluster resources quickly and correctly
