Lab Info
Before starting LFS256, you should be familiar with:

  • Kubernetes basics: Familiarity with Kubernetes concepts such as Pods, Services, Deployments, and Namespaces is crucial. Understanding how to create and manage these resources will be beneficial.
  • YAML manifests: Since Argo uses YAML for configuration and defining workflows, a good understanding of YAML syntax and how to write Kubernetes manifests in YAML is required.
  • Imperative vs Declarative configuration: Knowledge of these two approaches to configuration management in Kubernetes is important. Argo uses a declarative approach, so understanding the difference between the two will be helpful.
  • GitOps practices: As Argo is a tool that enables GitOps practices in Kubernetes, having an understanding of GitOps principles and practices would be beneficial.
  • Command Line Interface (CLI) usage: Basic skills in using the command line interface are necessary as the course includes hands-on labs that require interaction with Argo’s CLI.
  • Basic programming skills: While not strictly necessary, having basic programming skills can help in understanding some of the more advanced concepts in the course, such as parameterization and conditionals in Argo Workflows.

There are no pre-requisites for the CAPA exam.
