"I have compared this to other courses at Udemy and Linux Academy. All have the strengths and gaps, so far this is a winner!" -  Thomas Trauss, Student

Learning Kubernetes is essential for any DevOps professional. DevOps engineers are always in demand. Currently, the average Silicon Valley salary for a DevOps engineer is 20% higher than what a software engineer makes. DevOps engineers make an average of $140,000 to $200,000 annually. And One of the most in-demand skills is Kubernetes Administration.

Kubernetes is an open-source system for automating deployment, scaling, and management of containerized applications. It was originally designed by Google and is now maintained by the Cloud Native Computing Foundation.

                                                                                                    Simplify Complex Technology

Kubernetes is at the cutting-edge of application deployment. To elevate your DevOps career, learn how to effectively deploy applications on Kubernetes.

This course helps you gain the knowledge required to design and deploy cloud-native applications on a Kubernetes cluster.  A series of well-designed lectures with animation and illustrations help you understand complex concepts easily.

                                                                                                     Practice! Practice! Practice!

Lectures alone won’t help you clear the certification. The Kubernetes Certification is a practical hands-on exam. You need hands-on experience, you need to get fast and you need practice. That is what our integrated hands-on lab experience gives you. Our coding quizzes can be accessed right in your browser without having to setup any lab environment yourself.

Bonus Lecture: Accessing the Labs
22 November 2021
I couldn't believe this course, seriously. It sounds ridiculous as I write this, but this hands down the best course for any tech subject I've studied (coming from an RHCA hopefully this means something). The labs are AMAZING!!!!!
22 November 2021
shows many tips and ways of doing things efficiently, covers everything needed for SKA exam and even without passing exam itself it is really great source to boost your understanding on kubernetes internals and tools
21 November 2021
it would be better to provide more details in security part. Some command/details required in the practice are not mentioned in your video
21 November 2021
Great course. Well structured, good content and up to date. It helped a lot to understand kubernetes and to pass the CKA certification exam. I totally recommend it.
18 November 2021
I have been develop software for more than 5 years. I took a lot of course and never clearly understand how basic network concept work. That really make me struggle with K8S a lot. This course save my life about networking. Thanks for your hard work
17 November 2021
Just got my CKA. It came true mostly thanks to Mumshad's incredible course. It gets you covered from novice to confident k8s engineer. The material level of details is amazing, sections like Networking, Security, JsonPath are just unique and unmatched. Thank you Mumshad, for your great work and the good times I had preparing for the CKA with your course! Mikhail Bakhmetiev CKA, LF-si40sqz861
16 November 2021
Hasta ahora muy buena la explicacion. Es un curso que no te arrepentiras de obtenerlo, su pronunciacion de ingles es pausada y clara de entender. Ademas las traduccion automatica a español no es mala.
15 November 2021
Course is so so good. It covers a lot of topics and Mumshad's ability to explain things in a clear way is second to none. The only problem I found during this course was that some labs (specially the mock exams) are a bit outdated and the solutions check is failing. And that maybe I miss some more lessons on contexts. But besides that, the content is pure gold.
12 November 2021
This course is the best option to get ready to CKA certification. Mumshad is a great tutor who clarifies everything in a way you'll be able to understand everything. I really recommend to do this course and its practicals tests.
11 November 2021
This training is a MUST if you are planning to take the CKA exam. I recommend to take all the lectures and not skip any lab practice. Mock exams were also really useful. I passed the exam at my first attempt :)
10 November 2021
The course focuses on what is needed to pass the exam. Lots of hands-on labs and the necessary dose of practical knowledge allow you to prepare and pass the exam and get a high score. I managed to pass the exam and get 92 points so I highly recommend it.
9 November 2021
Because you get a pretty good overview about the concepts of Kubernetes and how services interact in a Kubernetes Cluster
7 November 2021
Awesome course, and this feedback is despite of being in starting of the program ! I feel, If one can't learn from this course then can't learn from any course.
5 November 2021
One word. Awesome! Very quality content. It took me 1 hour to make notes of 20 minutes video. Much appreciated work :)
28 October 2021
The presenter is very well articulated and speaks in a clear way. I am not an English native speaker but I had no problem following him. The basic concepts have been easy enough to follow for someone who has experience with Linux and understands containers but never directly worked with kubernetes.
