Understanding Cloud Native
If you are new to Cloud Native concepts and Kubernetes, this Learning Path will introduce you to the history and industry pressures that necessitated the rise of Cloud Native practices. The courses in this learning path provide a broad overview of the Cloud Native landscape, cover Container and Kubernetes concepts, and provide hands-on experience with the technologies.
Introduction to Building Cloud Native Applications
This Learning Path covers the basics for developers that are new to building cloud native applications. The path prepares learners for cloud native application development, starting with setting up a local Kubernetes environment and optimizing developer workflow, followed by approaches to containerizing applications and, finally, gaining observability into applications deployed to Kubernetes.
Kubernetes Core Concepts
Kubernetes is a platform that encompasses many concepts and areas. Learning about it can be difficult because it is so broad. In this path, you'll learn how to containerize and deploy a Kubernetes application, manage application lifecycle and configuration, networking considerations, workload options and security, and more. Each course builds upon the next and includes hands-on exercises to reinforce the material covered in each lesson.
Tanzu for Kubernetes Operations
The material in this learning path aims to help you understand the VMware Tanzu for Kubernetes Operations (TKO) concepts, products and components. It should prepare you to use the TKO reference architecture solutions to build and deploy TKO instances.
Important items to note before starting:
- This material assumes you have a Certified Kubernetes Administrator (CKA) level knowledge/experience of Kubernetes. Ideally you will have passed your CKA certfication before taking this learning path.
- If you are not comfortable or fluent with Kubernetes knowledge and tasks beyond the basics (storage, debugging, networking, etc.) then we recommend taking the Kubernetes Core Concepts learning path here on KubeAcademy.
Tanzu Application Platform for Operators
VMware Tanzu Application Platform is a modular, application-aware platform that provides a rich set of developer tooling and a prepaved path to production to build and deploy software quickly and securely on any compliant public cloud or on-premises Kubernetes cluster.
The material in this Learning Path will help platform operators prepare, set up, configure and use the Tanzu Application Platform. It is based on the core product reference documentation and the Tanzu Application Platform Reference Architecture.
