Event Details

Who is this course for?

System administrators or developers who wish to progress from a general understanding of Kubernetes, and wish to learn the ins, outs and current best practices for deploying a production grade Kubernetes cluster.


- SSH client installed
- Google Cloud SDK installed
- Knowledge of basic Linux commands
- Basic knowledge of Kubernetes


Kubernetes Advanced Course will dive right into constructing your own microservices as Kubernetes objects; we recommend attendees already have a basic understanding of using Kubernetes, preferably having completed our online or workshop introduction course.

We will go over advanced features of Pods and Replication Controllers and how to modify them in place in a development environment. We will then show how to scale them automatically with workload, and how to expose your microservice to the outside world with an Ingress Controller.

The course continues with current best practices for using a Kubernetes cluster in production, and how to use supporting cluster services effectively.

Finally the course explores a more system administrator angle - how to dig down into your cluster’s performance and examine metrics in greater detail.

We will cover:

  • Creating your own Pods

    • Ready and liveness check

    • Resource limits

    • Secrets

    • Persistent volumes

  • Using labels

    • Replication Controllers

    • Scaling using kubectl

    • Services selecting on labels to expose your app

    • Horizontal Autoscaler

  • In production

    • Namespaces

    • Node selector

    • LimitRanger

    • Services

    • Ingress controller

    • Rolling update for 0 downtime deploys

    • Service accounts and service account secrets

  • Cluster sysadmin

    • Networking solutions

    • Cluster DNS

    • ELK

    • CAdvisor/sysdig/prometheus/influxdb

  • Kube from scratch

    • CoreOS + etcd

    • Podmaster HA

After completion of this course, you will:

  • Know the latest release of Kubernetes inside-out

  • Create your own microservice templates from scratch

  • Scale and update your services with zero downtime
