Because the course focuses on using PKS, no particular programming language expertise is required, though experience with at least one programming language is beneficial. Experience with container technology is also beneficial but not strictly required. All participants will need to be able to run the 64 bit lab VM and have access to the Internet.
This three day hands-on course is designed to provide participants with a comprehensive introduction to the Pivotal Container Service (PKS). Participants will leave with a clear understanding of the PKS enterprise-grade Kubernetes environment and practical experience deploying a range of applications and services. Each day is organized into four modules including a hands-on lab exploring the key topics covered in lecture. Day one of the course covers the PKS platform architecture and foundational components such as Bosh, Kubernetes and Harbor. Day two focuses on application deployment and service interaction. The course concludes with a look at key platform services such as security, state management and a range of other minor topics necessary to round out the PKS overview. Upon completion of the course participants will have the skills and information necessary to begin working with the Pivotal Container Service in a production setting.
This course is designed for Software engineers, technical managers, DevOps, and test and build personnel.
