Kubernetes Design Patterns Training Course


The evolution of microservices and containers in recent years has significantly changed how we design, develop, deploy and run software. Modern applications must be optimized for scalability, elasticity, failure, and change. Driven by these new demands, modern architectures require a different set of patterns and practices. In this training, we examine ways to identify, understand and adjust to these new requirements.

This training is intended for people who are somewhat familiar with container technology and with Kubernetes concepts but are perhaps lacking the real world experience. It is based on use cases, and lessons learnt from real life projects with the intention of making people inspired to create and manage even better cloud native applications.
