Kubernetes 101: Labs designed to help you achieve an understanding of Kubernetes

Have you ever wanted to learn about Kubernetes, but you’re completely overwhelmed with the amount of articles and blogs about the topic? You’ve heard about it and seen it in others’ code, but what does it actually do? How does it help your containers? Is Kubernetes a type of container? This set of labs clears up confusion and helps you get comfortable with Kubernetes.

We’ve built a set of labs that are designed with you, the developer, in mind.

When you complete the labs, you gain the following achievements:

  • A full understanding of Kubernetes core concepts
  • Knowledge on how to build a Docker image and deploy an application on Kubernetes in the IBM Cloud Kubernetes Service
  • Controlled application deployments, while minimizing your time with infrastructure management
  • The skills to add AI services to extend your app
  • More secure clusters and apps as well as an understanding of how to monitor them

Completing all the exercises in these labs takes approximately 3 hours. Try a few exercises to get started.
