Kubernetes Application Developer

This course will help you to gain understanding how to deploy, use, and maintain your applications on Kubernetes. If you are into DevOps, this is a technology you need to master.

This course will also allow you to take the Certified Kubernetes Application Developer exam (CKAD). This exam certifies that you can design, build, configure, and expose applications for Kubernetes. It also means that you can define, monitor and troubleshoot scalable applications and tools within Kubernetes.

This course (and also the exam) is very hands-on. We will provide a Kubernetes cluster for you, so you can practice the theory. The exam requires you to be hands-on and you need to be fast, which means you need to practice and apply the knowledge that you learned.

Some basic System Administration knowledge is required, like understanding bash commands and working with a text editor (vim / nano). Knowledge of Docker is not mandatory, but highly recommended, since it would help you to better understand the concepts within Kubernetes.
