This short course provides an initial opportunity to understand what Kubernetes is, how it fits into the world of cloud-native software and offers an opportunity to try out Kubernetes on your own. It is intended as a "first look" at Kubernetes' function as a container orchestration tool and is appropriately followed up, if appropriate for you, with our Kubernetes bundle.
This course will provide you with an understanding of the basic architecture and functionality of Kubernetes, a container orchestrating/scheduling system. More importantly you will be able to follow along on your laptop (or compute environment of your choice) as you instructor shows you how to launch Kubernetes and use it to deploy, manage and troubleshoot Docker containers.
