KD100

Kubernetes and Docker Bootcamp | taught by Devin Parrish

Course Description

UPDATE!  This course now includes one free attempt at the Mirantis Kubernetes Exam (KCM100).

Kubernetes and Docker Bootcamp (KD100) is a training for software developers, architects, deployment engineers, or other IT team members responsible for the automated deployment, scaling, management, and running of applications.

This course requires students to be very familiar with the Linux command line. The course is broken up into two sections: lectures and labs.

The lectures provide an introduction to Docker and Kubernetes. Students will learn how to use Docker for developing, shipping, and running applications. Also, students will learn how to use Kubernetes to automate deployment, scaling, and management of containerized applications.

The labs provide hands-on experience through the installation of a Docker and Kubernetes cluster from scratch. Students will also learn how to run a Docker container, build a new Docker image and configure it. Over the length of the course, students will use Kubernetes to deploy and manage a simple web application.

  • Average required time to pass the course: 2 days
  • Access to labs: 3 days
  • Lab Extensions: 3 maximum
  • Access to lectures: 1 year
  • Includes 1 free KCM100 ($600 value) exam attempt

Docker Kubernetes non-specific flavor

by Matt Lemmo
Good course I liked the lessons and labs very much. Look forward to taking the Exam. Only issue is I am not seeing where the free test option is executed. Suggestion: This should not be difficult to find the free exam once the course is complete.

awesome!

Thank you!

by Evgeny Faddeenkov
Overall, I think it is a good course - thank you! Not so many players offer training & certification on Kubernetes at the moment - great to see Mirantis in this spot. A couple of notes: - Module 3, slide deck, around 19:17 shows an incorrect syntax for docker-compose: "docker-compose up docker-compose.yml" (option -f is missing). - Module 6, slides talk about the volume for MySQL but it is not reflected in the deployment configuration. I understand that it is included into the image definition but maybe an additional note can help. - I find the "Introduction to Kubernetes" module quite overloaded. Maybe splitting it into two modules will help. - The "OpenStack - Kubernetes" module looks optional. I understand that OpenStack is a major focus of Mirantis. Maybe, marking it as "optional" would help? These are just minor things & suggestions - thank you again! Evgeny

Feedback on KD100

by Randolph Hill
I think the class is pretty good. I am on the last module. Here are some suggestions: 1. Three days to do the lab is fast. I have a heavy work schedule. Thus, I cannot dedicate three full days. Maybe have each lab module one has three days to complete. 2. Should have a note that student can use their on system to do the lab. Worked best for me. 3. Supplemental material to read would be good. 4. Offer web conferencing sessions. 5. Major Issue for Me: No training in Asia Pacific. Pricing needs to be adjusted for country based pricing. Note: I am from the U.S. I have lived in Asia Pacific for close to 23+ years doing IT business. Very good overall.

Very interesting topics, useful examples, I'm waiting for more advanced KD200.

Review of Kubernetes KD100 course

by Liam McEntee
A very nice course, which steadily built the students knowledge of docker & kubernetes and was re-enforced with the lab sessions throughout
