Prerequisites
Before starting this course, you should be familiar with:

Lab Info
For hands-on lab exercises, access to a Linux server or Linux desktop/laptop is required. Access to a public cloud provider, or VirtualBox on your machine is also needed. Lab exercises in this course have been tested in a GCP environment.

If using a cloud provider like GCP or AWS, you should be able to complete the lab exercises using the free tier or credits provided to you. However, you may incur charges if you exceed the credits initially allocated by the cloud provider.

A good mix between content, external links, and especially links to official documentation (as Kubernetes is a fast moving project). Labs are always a must, and are well designed I think.

The content is high quality, distilled, not easy to find in other sources, and makes it straightforward to learn.

The broad number of topics covered, and the fact that most of them have good examples to practice. Including HA and Security was a good decision, as those topics are normally skipped when starting on Kubernetes (hard to implement locally, or simply complex enough to avoid them). THANKS!

Very in depth explanations of a lot of Kubernetes concepts. I normally work with Kubernetes, but it still managed to show me several new tools.

The course was straightforward with good, clear explanations, and great Labs to practice.

Course had a good flow, and the response to questions in the forums was very helpful.

Great mix of theory and labs. The labs built on one another, unlike the content offered by other training providers. I also learned a lot more about the internal of Kubernetes, and got a lot more information about add-ons and other CNCF projects.

I really did enjoy the labs, and felt like I learned a lot by going through them myself. It was a great experience going through the various Kubernetes administrative tasks in a hands-on manner.
