Kubernetes Microservices Module 1

Production Microservices in the Cloud.

Apart from installing Minikube, the course should take about a day to complete.

  • Use Kubernetes to Orchestrate production workloads.
  • This first Kubernetes training course covers the fundamentals - workloads (Pods, RelicaSets, Deployments) and Services.
  • Some patience is needed installing Minikube!
  • Module 2 (estimate: late June) will be covering microservices, networking, helm, mongodb, AWS deployment with Kops, and (the best bit) monitoring, logging and alerting using ELK (aka ElasticStack).
No specific requirements - anyone interested in managing real production workloads are welcome. Docker knowledge is useful but we will give a working overview. There are hands on exercises throughout but you don't need to do any coding!

Introduction 2m 56s

A brief overview of the course


Welcome to Kubernetes 12m 24s

What is Kubernetes (sometimes known as "K8S") and what can it do for you?


Installing Minikube 24m 16s

Minikube is a local installation of Kubernetes for use in testing and development


Additional Information for Windows 10 Professional 3m 34s

If you want to use the built in hyper-v instead of VirtualBox, follow the guide here.


Docker Overview 28m 52s

In case you haven't used Docker before, a quick overview of how it works


Getting Started with Kubernetes - Pods 24m 45s

We'll focus first on the most basic concept in Kubernetes - Pods


Services 34m 25s

How to access your pods from the "outside world" using Services


Practical Session 10m 4s

A chance to practice - a new pod and service.


ReplicaSets 34m 25s

Pods on their own are not robust. We'll see how to use ReplicaSets to ensure that your pods are always running. Also we can ensure that multiple instances of any given Microservice are always operational.


Deployments 24m 33s

Another step up from ReplicaSets are Deployments - these enable us to perform zero downtime "rolling updates". If things go wrong, we can do a rollback.
