Learn Microservices by Doing

with Matthew Pearson

  • 4.5 hours of learning

  • 28 flash cards

Get hands-on experience with installing and administering a complex microservice application in a Kubernetes cluster in this course! Start with an overview of Kubernetes conceptually, and then move on to installing a functioning Kubernetes cluster. Once the cluster has been bootstrapped, you’ll learn how to install a simple microservice, and then install a more complex microservice application you’ll be working with throughout the remainder of the course. Using this microservice application, you’ll work through the various components and features of Kubernetes, like service discovery and autoscaling. Working through this course will give you hands-on experience with the microservice architecture and show you why this method has become one of the most sought after in the IT industry.

Hands-On Labs in This Course

  • Install and Configure a Kubernetes Cluster
  • Installing Microservices on a Kubernetes Cluster
