As businesses move more applications to Kubernetes, developers and platform operators need to secure those applications and platforms. This course demonstrates concepts and tools your teams can use to secure Kubernetes for applications.
7 Lessons 1:05:16
This course helps you understand the capabilities required to build an application platform with Kubernetes. You’ll see an overview of Kubernetes’ architecture and extensibility, and learn about common tooling options and trade-offs that are necessary when taking your application to production with Kubernetes.
10 Lessons 1:23:55
Get up to speed on the first principles of a cloud native infrastructure, then learn how to containerize and deploy a Kubernetes application in our lab environment.
Getting your application successfully deployed and working in Kubernetes is the first step. Deploying updated versions and handling configuration changes between environments are next steps that need to be addressed. In this course we teach you the standardized features and approaches for handling deployment lifecycle and application configuration in Kubernetes.
Running a single application in a single Kubernetes cluster is uncommon. Typically there will be many applications running in the same cluster and also many different clusters in your organization. This course teaches you the networking considerations for getting traffic to your different applications in the same cluster. We also share advice and considerations
Applications have various complexity and typically, when first learning and using Kubernetes, simple applications, like web servers, are deployed and used. Applications that need persistent storage and are configured differently per environment have additional requirements. In this course we cover the features of Kubernetes that satisfy these requirements.
Most applications people first deploy to Kubernetes are servers that run until they crash or are intentionally shut down. In this course, you’ll learn the other types of workloads that Kubernetes is capable of running and security related concerns to apply to each.
Understanding how Kubernetes works is important, but equally important is understanding how to interact with Kubernetes. This course provides an overview on Kubectl and ingress, two necessary components for interacting with Kubernetes.
2 Lessons 15:57
The CKA/D certification is the globally recognized IT certification for the industry’s fastest-growing technology—Kubernetes. This course lays out a learning path for exam preparation. We'll cover the exam format, how the exam is scored, and study resources.
9 Lessons 2:00:12
This course dives into the usage of a Kubernetes cloud provider to interact with underlying infrastructure components such as storage devices and load balancers.
6 Lessons 36:01
In this course, you'll learn how to bootstrap Kubernetes clusters using various community tools. We'll also dive into topics like authentication, role-based access control, and backing up and restoring Kubernetes objects and clusters.
6 Lessons 52:56
This course covers different approaches for building images. By the end of this course, you'll be well positioned to start building images easily and maintain them over time.
8 Lessons 1:03:13
When developing applications for Kubernetes, a distributed system, Developers and Platform Engineers need to know how to monitor these applications and know how their services impact their business. This course walks through several options for getting observability into your applications and systems, including short demonstrations of how these systems work in a Kubernetes cluster.
8 Lessons 38:51
This course covers operational considerations tailored for virtual infrastructure administrators who want to build a Kubernetes stack for development teams.

The Helm 101 is the perfect starting point for understanding, creating and managing Kubernetes workloads using Helm. Create, deploy and update your own Helm chart with this course!
10 Lessons 1:44:19
Pods running in a Kubernetes cluster have to be able to communicate among themselves as well as with the outside world. In this advanced-level course, we will look at the Kubernetes network model and how pods are connected to the network to satisfy it. We'll also touch on what the Container Network Interface (CNI) is and how different CNI providers deal with implementing it.
