Whether small startups or large companies - many companies rely on the OpenSource Kubernetes and Container technology. But what about the kind of containers that roll up the virtualization market and change the software development in the long term? With Docker containers you can create reproducible software images easily and accelerate your development.

Kubernetes promises also a quick start and a flexible configuration, but it’s designed to scale in the large. You can operate in the cloud and on premises for production. In this Kubernetes lab we want to pursue this promise.

We start with an overview and introduce the first steps with the basic use of Kubernetes. You will get to know the most important commands, instructions and concepts to run pods and services. With using some concrete examples, you will learn quickly how to implement a microservice application, deploy it with Kubernetes, and integrate it with other services in different environments; from development to staging and production. We also discuss the current Kubernetes ecosystem and clarify opportunities and risks.

This lab provides you with the Kubernetes basics in comprehensible steps and puts you in the position to decide subsequently whether and how Kubernetes is useful in your business and IT context.
