"I passed the exam and certified CKAD now. I didn't passed at the first attempt. Second time, I found  this course on official page k8s and did practice all the labs. Honestly, labs are very challenging and great for the CKAD!" Dave, 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 Deployment.

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 illustration help you understand complex concepts easily.

so amazing course, with the hands-on labs save a lot of time setting up the minikube and can practice anywhere!
10 November 2021
Have cleared my CKA after taking Mumshad's CKA course on Udemy & now I am taking the CKAD one. I am sure to crack it.
10 November 2021
The main part of the course is really good. Unfortunately the additions for the new topics lack the quality of the main course. Also several things are outdated and would need updates to the current state of kubectl.
9 November 2021
Well planned concept ordering and easy to understand illustrations. Hands on labs on KodeCloud makes it STAR. One of the best course in Market for Kubernetes CKAD. Totally recommended. I've cleared my CKAD exam even though exam pattern/section changed from Oct 2021. Thank you Mumshad and Team KodeCloud.
8 November 2021
I took the CKAD test and did not clear the test. The test questions are very detailed on pods. I have a retake . please help me and provide any extra material I have to prepare on to pass the test
6 November 2021
Everything important in one place, exactly what I expected. Labs are very important for not forgetting all concepts instantly and this makes this course even more valuable. Sometimes labs UI is slow and prevents from going faster.
3 November 2021
Lectures are good, nice slides, clear language etc.. But labs.. that's a whole new level. Labs are just brilliant.
27 October 2021
resource/slides provided is not matching with actual lecture. Lab exercise could be bit more complicated/hard.
25 October 2021
I am learning new concepts and then I get a chance to practice it in the lab, which helps clear the understanding further.
23 October 2021
The course is very well designed and compare with cloud academy K8s exam preparation course, this one is much more visible and way easier to follow, also each session is followed by a proper lightening labs with another separate session for the solutions, that is really impressive! Just one thing, the lab is not very stable sometimes, hope can be improved. Anyway that doesn't effect the final rate to be a FIVE star
22 October 2021
It's a first step for a beginner to learn what kubernetes is. That's helpful for any candidates who will take a real exam of kubernets.
8 October 2021
This course along with the "Kubernetes for Absolute beginners" got me through the CKAD certification. The kodekloud labs were extremely helpful in practicing the commands. Highly recommended for anyone who is preparing for the CKAD certification!!
6 October 2021
Explanations are given in a simple and clear way. vocabulary is not complex and the whys are explained
5 October 2021
Thank you very much, Mumshad. I just passed the CKAD certification 2 weeks ago. Your course was super helpful. Totally recommended.
11 September 2021
it would be helpful to explain where he figured out the port numbers to put in the config file. video went a little fast
