You: Need to understand how to use Kubernetes to accelerate and automate your application deployment or to advance your career.

We: Will train you on how Kubernetes and Docker work together, and how you can leverage these tools to build and manage a container-based application deployment.

In this class you’ll learn to easily deploy a development-capable environment and walk you through the basic resources and tools needed to deploy a containerized app.


Kubernetes is an Open Source project derived from Google’s container management platform, which has gone from a simple container deployment model to a production grade container management solution in under 2 years, driven by a strong open source community.

You will learn:

  • Kubernetes System Architecture
  • Docker Container Basics
  • Using Pods, Deployments, and Services
  • Networks and Persistent Storage for Applications
  • Monitoring and Logging Applications and Container Infrastructure

Container tech is one of the technologies that has a “skills gap” – more demand than people available to fill positions- and we think there is no good reason it exists. Any company that is dealing with Container management could use someone with the skills you will learn in this course.

Get started on your journey to Container mastery.

Learning this cutting edge technology may well be the thing that sets you apart when applying for your next job or promotion.

After completing this class you will know the basics of how to setup and manage a Kubernetes system.

A few of the topics we’ll cover include:
  Why Kubernetes? How does does Kubernetes make it easy to manage Docker (and rkt) applications at scale?
 Kubernetes Architecture. Understand Pods, Clusters, Replica Sets and Deployments and, more importantly, how to create them and automate their management.
  Understand how Containerized applications are deployed, replicated and rolled forward or back.
  And much more!


Now is your time to become a Container Systems Operator.

Frequently Asked Questions

These are introductory courses and, while familiarity with the Linux command line interface will be helpful, the course is designed for student with no prior experience to be able to complete successfully.
Yes. In fact, you’ll get instructions to set up a fully functioning Docker (DKR-050) or Docker and Kubernetes (KUB-050) environment. These will serve you for initial evaluation and for ongoing development (production often requires a bit more effort).
All our courses are enabled with discussion sections for each module. You can submit comments or questions and expect a response within 24 hrs, and often much less!
Once you have registered, you have permanent access to all course materials. In addition, we are fanatical about keeping our content current. As long as you stay signed up for the Kumulus newsletter (which is optional), you’ll even get notified when your course gets updated.
