About this training

In this Kubernetes basic training, participants learn the building blocks of Kubernetes clusters hands-on and assemble them into a fail-safe cluster. All the skills are taught to run a Kubernetes cluster. In addition, systems required for DevOps will be set up. Finally, there will be an outlook on everyday operations in software development.

For the training, we provide all participants with a uniform training environment so that a smooth start into the Kubernetes world is possible without complicated preparation. As part of our onboarding process we provide you with a download for a Virtual Box VM to run locally.

In the process, the following questions, among others, are answered

  • What infrastructure components make up a Kubernetes cluster?
  • How do you set these up?
  • How do you set up a cluster automatically?
  • What systems do you need beyond that?
  • What should be considered when operating the cluster?
