Course description

Guided Project: Create and Deploy Your First Kubernetes Pod

Kubernetes, maintained by the Cloud Native Computing Foundation , is a leading open source system for containerized workloads. Companies worldwide use Kubernetes to automate deployment, management, and scaling of container-based applications. With companies continuing to adopt containerization, Kubernetes skills are highly in demand.

This project is ideal for new and seasoned application developers and DevOps professionals. By the end of this hands-on guided project, you will have gained practical Kubernetes experience that employers value. You’ll know how to create and deploy a container pod, be able to describe Kubernetes container management, and will have learned how Kubernetes handles load balancing. You will have developed a foundation in Database-as-a-Service (DBaaS) management and be familiar with common Kubernetes features and tools, such as the kubectl command line interface and imperative object configuration.

To complete the project, you will be provided with a Cloud-based IDE that already has many technologies, such as Kubernetes and Docker, preinstalled. Also, note that this platform works best with current versions of Chrome, Edge, Firefox, Internet Explorer, or Safari.
