Certified Kubernetes Administrator

Hosting distributed systems on Kubernetes.

As a team facilitating other teams in hosting their Docker containers or as a DevOps team that does everything by their selves you’ve decided to go to Kubernetes. Great choice and there are readily available solutions to get started on Kubernetes. Everything runs fine on day 1. But what about day 2? Do you know how the system you’ve just provisioned actually functions?

Queue the ‘Certified Kubernetes Administrator’ class. This is your chance to kickstart your Kubernetes learning experience. This training takes you from zero Kubernetes-know-how to “Certified Kubernetes Administrator (CKA)” in only two days.
