Kubernetes is a powerful tool for container orchestration. There are many different ways to bootstrap a Kubernetes cluster, many of which make the process easier by abstracting some of the details. Kelsey Hightower's open source guide, Kubernetes the Hard Way, goes through how to bootstrap a Kubernetes cluster without the use of installers or scripts. While there is nothing wrong with using installers or scripts, this approach gives you a deeper understanding of the details of Kubernetes. This course is an adaptation of the Kubernetes the Hard Way guide. It is intended to walk you through it and provide some additional explanation of each step along the way.
In this course, you will develop the skills that you need to write effective and powerful scripts and tools using Python. We will go through the necessary features of the Python language to be able to leverage its additional benefits in writing scripts and creating command line tools (data types, loops, conditionals, functions, error handling, and more). Beyond the language itself, you will go through the full development process including project set up, planning, and automated testing to build two different command line tools.
"Container" is the new buzzword, but it doesn’t just mean Docker! This course will dive into LXC (LinuX Containers) and its container manager, LXD. Students will explore how containers work, how they compare with virtual machines and Docker containers, and how they handle application isolation. Students will get hands-on by installing and configuring containers and thoughtfully selecting a persistent storage strategy. The course also covers the intricacies of container networking including inter-container communication, managing container networks, and exposing container ports on the host. For advanced students, several use cases are explored and implemented using this exciting technology.
This course will prepare the prospective student to successfully pass the Docker Certified Associate exam. In addition, you will find that the the subjects and materials covered within this course will also equip the successful candidate with the knowledge and experience needed to run Docker clusters and workloads in a complex production environment.

In this course, you will learn how to combine the power of OpenStack, the premier Infrastructure-as-a-Service platform that provides the administrator with a beautifully simplified way to manage virtual machines, software-defined networks, block storage, object storage, and more, with OpenShift Platform-as-a-Service software.
Kubernetes, the open-source system for deploying, managing, and scaling containerized apps, is at the heart of Google Kubernetes Engine. This integration is totally natural. Google developed Kubernetes in-house, and uses it to run its own most popular, global apps. Gmail, YouTube, and even Search run in Kubernetes Engine. It is a fully-managed service and, in this course, you’ll learn it from the ground up.
During this course, I’ll explain the concepts behind Kubernetes and explain its architecture in detail. You’ll learn what comprises a cluster, how to spin one up, deploy an application on one, and then scale out as needed. Such power needs to be handled properly. We’ll cover multiple levels of access control, from integration with Cloud IAM to Kubernetes-specific Role-Based Access Control. With any cloud computing system, networking is key. I’ll show you how Kubernetes Engine works with load balancers (both internal and external), as well as how to set up a private cluster, and declare a network policy.
Throughout the course, a fictitious company, LA Containers, is used to provide real-world scenarios in an interactive chart, which can be viewed here: https://interactive.linuxacademy.com/diagrams/LAContainers.html.
Additionally, the course describes how to convert the normally stateless Kubernetes Engine so that it handles stateful applications, with the addition of a persistent disk. We’ll also explore the techniques used for integrating Kubernetes Engine with other services on the Google Cloud platform, such as Cloud Pub/Sub, Cloud Storage, and Cloud SQL.
Kubernetes is the de facto standard for orchestrating containerized apps, and Google Kubernetes Engine is its most fully-realized implementation. Join me in the comprehensive exploration of this much in-demand technology in Google Kubernetes Engine Deep Dive.
