LFS258, developed in conjunction with the Cloud Native Computing Foundation, is geared towards developers and administrators who want to get started with Kubernetes.
The new training course, LFS258 – Kubernetes Fundamentals, teaches students how to use Kubernetes to manage their application infrastructure. Topics covered include Kubernetes architecture, deployment, how to access the cluster, tips and tricks, ConfigMaps and more. This self-paced, online course would provide the fundamentals needed to understand Kubernetes and get quickly up-to-speed, to start building distributed applications that will scale, be fault-tolerant and simple to manage.
Kubernetes Fundamentals would distill key principles, such as pods, deployments, replicasets and services, and give students enough information to start using Kubernetes on their own. The course is designed to work with a wide range of Linux distributions, so students will be able to apply the concepts learned regardless of their distribution of choice.
“Kubernetes is rapidly maturing in development tests and trials and within production settings, where its use has nearly tripled in the last eight months,” said Dan Kohn, executive director, the Cloud Native Computing Foundation. “We are thrilled to partner with The Linux Foundation to provide a program that will train, certify and promote Kubernetes Managed Service Providers (KMSP). This program will ensure enterprises receive the support they’re looking for to get up to speed and roll out new applications more quickly and more efficiently.”
LFS258 also will help prepare those planning to take the Kubernetes certification exam, which will be launching later this year. Updates are planned for the course ahead of the certification exam launch, which will be specifically designed to assist with preparation for the exam.
