Kubernetes is one of the hottest topics right now, and engineers with Kubernetes skills are in big demand.

Get those skills with this course! It’s is a great chance to work on a real Kubernetes project, and to get yourself to a high professional standard on real projects.

All the way through the course you’ll be working on realistic requirements – but you don’t need to be a coder or know any particular programming language – I’ve prepared for you a set of Docker images, and your job is to use Kubernetes to get these images running.

The system is a Microservice-based architecture, and along the way, we’ll look at design decisions and trade-offs you need to make when managing these complex systems. Note the course isn’t about how to design Microservices (although we’ll certainly be talking about that); the development work is done and we need to get the system running on a production cluster.

We’ll also discover that the developers have made some bad mistakes in their code, by analyzing the run time performance of the cluster!

You can do the first part of the course on your local development computer (PC/Mac/Laptop). The second part (from Chapter 13 onwards) moves to the cloud. You’ll use a real AWS account, and we go-ahead to set up monitoring with the ELK/Elastic Stack and monitor with Prometheus and Grafana.

The course now supports EKS, the AWS Elastic Kubernetes Service, but we also show how to use the alternative system, called Kops. The pros and cons of each are explained in detail.

I’ve designed this course for a wide audience – whether you’re a DevOps engineer, a developer, or if you’re quite new to the whole field, I’ll explain everything along the way. Just some basic knowledge of working with computers, and maybe a bit of command-line experience will suffice.

You will need an AWS account for a part of the course if you want to work on the system yourself. If you’re new to AWS then don’t worry, I’ve got you covered -but Amazon will charge you for running the system (as with all/most cloud providers). Expect to pay no more than around 10USD for this (this is a safe overestimate), but you are expected to manage this spend yourself and you must delete your Kubernetes cluster at the end of your session. Don’t let that put you off, it’s a great investment.

You can absolutely just watch the AWS videos if you’d prefer not to incur these costs – you will still learn plenty!

As always, I’m here to answer questions and I aim to respond within 48 hours.

Good luck!

Who this course is for:

  • Anyone wanting to use Kubernetes on live production projects
  • We will be using AWS in the later sections of the course (optional); all AWS concepts are explained so this is a great start if you’re new to the cloud, but be aware that AWS do charge for usage.

  1. Donny Phan

    Super practical. Lessons are catered towards anyone looking to find work in this industry. It felt very comprehensive and gave me a broad understanding of the programming spectrum

  2. Madhav raj Verma

    Thanks for your great effort. i am fully satisfied with this course the way you teach and your explanation are very clear ,The content you provide in your course no one can do this at this price.

  3. Sachin Gupta

    I really didn’t want to leave a low rating as Angela is a great teacher. The 1st half of this course was terrific. The 2nd half was terrible. Under the justification of “teaching students how to figure things out on their own”, pretty much all videos and all explanations were dropped. You were just told what to do, given links to documentation and told to figure it out on your own. I understand doing that to some degree, but to revert to that entirely for nearly half the content barely makes this a course. It’s just a list of things for you to learn, then you’re left on your own to learn them. The 2nd half was so bad, especially the data science component, that I didn’t bother finishing the course.

  4. Vincent Beaudet

    Amazing 40 days course.
    Angela is a great teacher.
    The other 60 days are all about web developement, interacting with web pages, on your own with little to no explanations. I did not expect that at all. I wanted to learn more about software and scripting.
    This left me disappointed , confused and i started to doubt myself. Not a fun experience after the amount of effort i’v put in this course.

    Exercices format and explanations for the first 40 days were worth it tho.

  5. Ben K

    Not just an introduction to python, but really helps you learn fundamental aspects of python and coding in general. Some parts may require some knowledge on the subject (data science comes to mind) and there is quite some web development in the course. So, a few areas were not completely to my liking (I would have liked to see it done differently), but this course deserves the 5 stars in my opinion.

  6. Omid Alikhel

    I found the method a bit difficult when a code is written and then changed back to something different, with no enough explanation of how something happened and where it came from or a step by step explanation of why something is happening, i have no doubt in the instructors talent, but we are beginners!

  7. Devang Jain

    The course is not updated and most of the solution codes don’t work and there are no video solutions towards the end

  8. Szymon Kozak

    I think that the course tutor is really good in giving right information to learn at the right time. Thanks to this fact, my understanding of coding in python after 29 days of learning is above my expectations.

  9. Begoña Ruiz Diaz

    Ha sido la mejor elección que podría haber hecho.

  10. Vaibhav Sachdeva

    I want to thank Angela for making such an amazing course. It really helped me explore more things with python.
