Welcome to “Hands-on Kubernetes: Mastering the Fundamentals,” your personal guide to the vast and vibrant world of Kubernetes!

This course is tailor-made to walk you through the essentials of managing and deploying applications using one of today’s most influential tools, all presented in a friendly and approachable manner.

Starting from the very beginning, I’ll help you understand what Kubernetes is and why it’s a game-changer for developers and system administrators. You’ll get familiar with its architecture and the key components that power Kubernetes. Whether you’re using Linux, MacOS, or Windows, I’ve prepared step-by-step instructions for setting up Kubernetes with Minikube and Kubectl, ensuring you’re equipped to tackle any environment.

But we won’t just stop at the basics. I’ll guide you through deploying your first application, teaching you how to use YAML manifests to define your app’s needs clearly and concisely. Learn how to scale your applications effortlessly, preparing them to handle growing traffic with ease.

Then, I’ll show you how to make your applications available to your team or the whole world, using different methods to manage access both internally and externally. Through straightforward explanations and hands-on examples, you’ll become proficient in networking, managing external access, and ensuring your services are reachable whenever needed.

Configuring your apps and keeping their secrets safe is crucial. I’ll walk you through managing application settings and protecting sensitive information with configuration and secrets management, all without overwhelming you with complex terminology.

Kubernetes isn’t just a standalone tool; it’s part of a larger ecosystem. You’ll discover how tools like Helm can simplify adding features to your applications, and how GitOps practices with FluxCD and ArgoCD can make application deployment and updates straightforward and secure.

Security is paramount, and I’ll take you through setting up role-based access control (RBAC), securing your applications, and ensuring your network is fortified against threats, all explained in a friendly, understandable way.

By the end of this course, you’ll have a solid understanding of Kubernetes, capable of deploying, managing, and securing your applications confidently. Whether you’re beginning your journey or looking to enhance your existing skills, I’m here to lead you through each step with clarity and a touch of fun, making this comprehensive journey into Kubernetes as enjoyable as it is informative!

Looking forward to seeing you in the course!
