What’s Happening?

We’ve joined forces with the Linux Foundation to train 50,000 professionals over the next two years through a new learning path that prepares you for the Certified Kubernetes Administrator (CKA) exam. The curriculum includes three instructor-led courses, the first of which is absolutely free. Here's what you can expect from each course:

  • DevOps Crash Course (enrollment now open for the June 12 cohort! See details below): Get introduced to the core principles of DevOps and learn about key technologies used in modern software development and deployment.
  • Docker and Container Fundamentals: Understand how containers provide a powerful platform for running and managing applications.
  • Kubernetes: Managing Containers at Scale: Learn the ins and outs of Kubernetes and how to deploy a standalone or multi-tier application.

Why Kubernetes?

Kubernetes provides a platform for automating many of the tasks that are critical to DevOps, such as continuous deployment, scaling, and monitoring. “Kubernetes is important for any organization to improve efficiency, reduce downtime, deliver higher quality software, and ultimately provide a better end user experience,” explains Chris Aniszczyk, CTO of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation.

Thanks to the explosive growth of digital and cloud native projects, Kubernetes has seen massive adoption in recent years..DevOps professionals with Kubernetes expertise are in high demand, making this an excellent time for you to upgrade your skills.
