Kubeflow on GCP Training Course


Kubeflow is a framework for running Machine Learning workloads on Kubernetes. TensorFlow is one of the most popular machine learning libraries. Kubernetes is an orchestration platform for managing containerized applications.

This instructor-led, live training (online or onsite) is aimed at engineers who wish to deploy Machine Learning workloads to Google Cloud Platform (GCP).

By the end of this training, participants will be able to:

  • Install and configure Kubernetes, Kubeflow and other needed software on GCP and GKE.
  • Use GKE (Kubernetes Kubernetes Engine) to simplify the work of initializing a Kubernetes cluster on GCP.
  • Create and deploy a Kubernetes pipeline for automating and managing ML models in production.
  • Train and deploy TensorFlow ML models across multiple GPUs and machines running in parallel.
  • Leverage other GCP services to extend an ML application.

Format of the Course

  • Interactive lecture and discussion.
  • Lots of exercises and practice.
  • Hands-on implementation in a live-lab environment.
