Learning Kubernetes in a 2-day crash course

Why should your technology team learn Kubernetes?

Learning Kubernetes is highly beneficial if you are involved in software development, DevOps, or system administration. Learning Kubernetes equips you with the skills to effectively manage containerized applications. This is increasingly important as microservices and containerization become standard practices in software development.

How to learn Kubernetes fast and easy?

The Structure of the Kubernetes Workshop

First we have an initial meeting where we plan together (normally with a CTO, CEO or Tech Lead) what areas should be covered and how could we tailor the workshop for best effect.

First day usually focuses on theory and light hands-on exercises. Second day, in turn, is usually more hands-on and tailored to support daily development activity.

More tactical additional sessions can be agreed upon if needed. We are also available for support after the workshop too.

Feedback

We've always gotten super positive feedback of the workshop.

Especially the pragmatic hands-on approach - often on the actual cluster the developers will continue to work on - has received praise.

Also the fact that we continue to support their path towards Kubernetes enlightenment after the workshop brings comfort as the learning curve can seem pretty steep at first.

2-day workshop has a price tag of 2 500 euros. Contact my colleague if you are interested in making your team Kubernetes connoisseurs in just two days.
