Reviews
Sep 2022
I liked that not only did it cover the material required for the CKA exam, but also included detailed history and evolution of Kubernetes as well. I did the container fundamentals course right before this one, and they flowed together nicely.

This course provides a good balance between theory and practice; easy to follow for a self-paced module.

I like that it also gives links to more information about other subjects, in case more details/ explanations are needed to understand a chapter.

The combination of theory and hands-on, with a focus on the latter. This helped to understand and manage Kubernetes.
