Container Orchestration with Kubernetes - Level 3

AVG Duration2h


Kubernetes is built and managed in layers and nodes, wherein each component functions independently, while still running the same base system. A good grasp of these disparate elements, how to upgrade them individually and how to coordinate services across a cluster are all operational tasks that need to be performed regularly by cloud operations and devops teams.

The content in this learning path will teach you Container Orchestration with Kubernetes to a level 3 standard. 

Learning Objectives

  • Be able to patch and upgrade a Kubernetes cluster control plane and worker nodes
