Kubernetes Advanced

Take your DevOps to the next level


This two-day workshop will focus on advanced Kubernetes concepts and features. You will be invited to get hands-on with a series of step-by-step exercises to take you through the process of developing an application from first deployment and implementing best practices to improve and enhance it.
