In Learn Kubernetes in a Month of Lunches you'll go from "what's a Pod?" to automatically scaling clusters of containers and components in just 22 hands-on lessons, each short enough to fit into a lunch break. Every lesson is task-focused and covers an essential skill on the road to Kubernetes mastery. You'll learn how to smooth container management with Kubernetes, including securing your clusters, and upgrades and rollbacks with zero downtime. No development stack, platform, or background is assumed. Author Elton Stoneman describes all patterns generically, so you can easily apply them to your applications and port them to other projects!
about the technology
Create apps that perform identically on your laptop, data center, and cloud! Kubernetes provides a consistent method for deploying applications on any platform, making it easy to grow. By efficiently orchestrating Docker containers, Kubernetes simplifies tasks like rolling upgrades, scaling, and self-healing.
