Kubernetes Bootcamp


kubernetes bootcamp_MAX technical trainingThis 4-day Kubernetes bootcamp preps students for their CKAD certification.

Kubernetes is a Cloud Orchestration Platform, providing reliability, replication, and stability while minimizing resources for applications and services. This course guides students through the Kubernetes architecture, useful commands, containerization and Kubernetes best practices. Each student has access to their own high availability Kubernetes environment capable of demonstrating the “K8s” features discussed in the lecture portion of the course.

This is a Lab Intensive, hands-on course.

Students will learn:

  • How to deploy services on Kubernetes.
  • You will learn the Kubernetes architecture and functionality of each component.
  • Following a review of containerization, and what it means to the Kubernetes platform you will deep dive into the kubectl command-line utility, learning how to administer services on the Kubernetes Cluster.
  • Troubleshooting and testing are taught as the course progresses.
  • At the end of the class, you will experiment with deployment automation using Helm and Tiller.
  • When completed, you will be able to develop, test, and run new services on a Kubernetes cloud.



Kubernetes is an open-source system for automating deployment, scaling, and management of containerized applications.

It groups containers that make up an application into logical units for easy management and discovery. Kubernetes builds upon 15 years of experience of running production workloads at Google, combined with best-of-breed ideas and practices from the community.


Planet Scale

Designed on the same principles that allow Google to run billions of containers a week, Kubernetes can scale without increasing your ops team.


Never Outgrow

Whether testing locally or running a global enterprise, Kubernetes flexibility grows with you to deliver your applications consistently and easily no matter how complex your need is.


Run Anywhere

Kubernetes is an open-source giving you the freedom to take advantage of on-premises, hybrid, or public cloud infrastructure, letting you effortlessly move workloads to where it matters to you.

Basic Linux skills are helpful but not mandatory. Familiarity with a text editor like vi, vim, or nano is helpful.


Any company or individual who wants to advance their knowledge of the cloud environment, keep up with the most recent changes, and prepare themselves for the future of applications and services in the public or private cloud environment. Networking, General IT, DevOps, systems, and storage folks would be a great fit.
