Architecting Microservices With Kubernetes, Docker, And Continuous Integration Training

This two-day DevOps training class is loaded with practical real-world information. From the foremost Service-Oriented-Architecture/DevOps/Agile development training company, comes a course to move the dial on your organizations’ journey with this workshop. You will leave this course loaded with knowledge on the usage of this stack for Microservices. This class combines instructor-led and hands-on lab exercises.






  • Microservices
  • CI/CD
  • Kubernetes
  • Docker

After completing this course, the student should be able to:

  • Confidently use the stack outlined in the course.
  • Understand the various key components.
  • Apply the knowledge to migrate applications to microservice architected solutions on Docker, Kubernetes, and Jenkins with OpenShift
  • Understand the various components in an OpenShift environment for CI/CD 


Architecting Microservices | Building a CI/CD pipeline for microservices on Kubernetes 

It can be challenging to create a reliable CI/CD process for a microservices architecture. Individual teams must be able to release services quickly and reliably, without disrupting other teams or destabilizing the application as a whole.

An example is CI/CD pipeline for deploying microservices to Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS). Every team and project is different, 

Some goals of the pipeline can be summarized as follows:

  • Teams can build and deploy their services independently.
  • Code changes that pass the CI process are automatically deployed to a production-like environment.
  • Quality gates are enforced at each stage of the pipeline.
  • A new version of a service can be deployed side by side with the previous version.

Architecting Microservices | Build process

When possible, package your build process into a Docker container. That allows you to build your code artifacts using Docker, without needing to configure the build environment on each build machine. A containerized build process makes it easy to scale out the CI pipeline by adding new build agents.

Also, any developer on the team can build the code simply by running the build container.
