Look inside

In this liveProject, you’ll take an existing application and model it in Kubernetes. You’ll work with a prepackaged application for IoT company Widgetario to explore the core concepts of Kubernetes such as Pods and Deployments, Services, ConfigMaps, and Secrets. You’ll complete common tasks like routing network traffic, performing application updates, and configuring the app to run with high availability and scale. This project will ground you in the best practices of deploying an app to Kubernetes, with a fully working demo that can run with high availability and scale.
