Summary of the course

Length of the course: 4 days

The course can be perfect choice for professionals who have been using Kubernetes for testing purposes for some time and already have general knowledge about it.

During the training, we will discuss in detail Kubernetes-specific topics, which usually come up once we put the Kubernetes into operation as a production system. This is usually the point where the focus is shifted from testing towards more strict requirements and supporting wide range of development and operation requests. We also take a look at open-source solutions and projects that can work in synergy with Kubernetes and can cover critical tasks.

The Instructors

Dávid Szabó, PhD
