Advanced Kubernetes

Building out a multi-cloud Kubernetes architecture is a great way to achieve independence from one vendor, assign workloads to clouds with cheaper resources, and achieve a higher SLA for your workloads. There isn't a Cloud Provider which doesn't have outages, technical issues and resource limitations. By deploying a multi-cloud solution you can mitigate these risks and provide a rock solid compute platform for your business needs.

This course is a comprehensive experience designed to teach you how to create, manage, and maintain highly available Kubernetes clusters and applications using managed Kubernetes services such as Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS), Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE), and Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS). Throughout this course, you will explore the core components and best practices for ensuring high availability within the context of multi-AZ, multi-region, and multi-cloud strategies.

Learner success stories
Our students love our courses.

Best online course I've taken!

Zachary KneupperSoftware Engineer at

This was by far the best training course I have attended. The way it was structured and the support available from the instructor and TAs really made the learning valuable and lasting. I am looking forward to other courses in the near future!

TJ PolakSenior Manager of Business Intelligence, Embark Veterinary

Shoutout to the course team for helping me (and others) keep pushing along to make sure we get through the finish line, even when things are hard. I can't tell you how much I appreciate the accountability and extra help!

Michael GaglianoAnalytics Engineer, Collectors Universe

I love it - just enough content and guidance that can be covered between work, kids, and life but still learn and be challenged

Mike WilliamsProgram Manager, Salesforce

Completing this course has given me the foundation and confidence needed to make the full jump from Finance to Analytics Engineering. I've always felt like I needed a "credential" to make the full leap. Having gone through the course and learning with this community has made me feel like less of an "imposter" and like I have the skills/knowledge to do this as my profession (or at least know where to go to find the answers!). Really appreciative of the entire staff, TAs, cohort, pod, etc.

Brad SilfanFinance/Data Systems, Wonder

Thanks for the awesome course! Really helped me to improve my skillset.

Aditya DeshpandeSr. Applied Scientist, Amazon

This course has been an amazing learning experience - no only because of the content of the course but also the way in which is taught! It has the perfect mix of online - individual work - community time and resources. The teaching materials are very high quality and the whole team are super attentive and responsive.

It's a great way to learn hands-on experience with dbt, get exposed to real life problems, industry experts and also networking! I highly recommend it!

Sara GasparSenior BI Analyst, Lyst

I would recommend this to anyone looking to get their feet wet in dbt that needs a structured course and accountability to learn a new tool/skill

Mer ManahanData Analyst

Absolutely stoked to share this! Over the last month I had the pleasure of learning from some of the great minds coming out of Facebook, Google, and other enterprises doing bleeding edge work in Machine Learning and Natural Language Processing. Being part of a select cohort spanning three continents I was able to hear about initiatives and research from AI/ML professionals around the globe. NLP is a fast emerging sector that is changing the landscape of software everywhere you look. I'm so honored to be part of this experience and am taking away so many great connections and insights in a field that I really love.

Erik JakubowskiSoftware Engineer, Financial Tech

I’ve taken lots of online courses before. The track was a much better experience than any of the other courses.

Scott MillslagleData Engineer, Handshake

The Uplimit NLP course has been the most efficient way I've ever learned new skills. Having access to talented instructors and peers made the learning process both quicker and richer.

Jason EllicotData Scientist III, J.B. Hunt

I got to learn and directly interact with world class practitioners of NLP which no other course in the market offers.

Yudhiesh RavindranathData Scientist, MoneyLion

I really enjoyed the course and the community around it. I think it was a great way to not only learn about NLP, but also connect with other engineers in the field.
