High level abstract, yet it has the right amount of hands-on detail.

I think it's a good starting point on my journey to cloud technologies.

The sections about architecture (control plane, scheduler, kubelet, etc) are very useful.

It's simple, with practical exercises, and not too much text. Easy to study and understand.

This course gave a complete overview of basic Cloud Native and Kubernetes topics, as well as the many links to external extra content to get on-demand, deep-dive content.

The breadth of the topics covered, and the right depth to take the KCNA, not too technical, manu metaphors, very easy language, perfect for non-tech rookies like me.

Content is presented well in brief and easily understandable language.

Easy to use and follow, further information links are provided. Completely self-paced, if one is faster this is fine, if one needs more time, this is also fine.

I liked the facility of explaining very complex technology in an easy way, so everyone can understand it.
May 2022
The course was concise and well written. I really liked the Kubernetes networking chapter, as it explained the different types of services, and how they work. I also liked the videos in which Kubeview was used, they explained clearly what happens in different scenarios, and how certain Kubernetes objects behave.

The content is gently introduced, the explanations are great, and the links to other materials are helpful and responsible. The knowledge from "The Linux Foundation" that is inherent to the course is remarkable.

The training is detailed enough to teach you the basics, without getting into too much detail. I think the folks who put this together did a great job of explaining the key concepts, but not overwhelming the newbie student.
