As an award-winning Google Cloud Partner, we’ll help show you how to get started with Google Kubernetes Engine on this course, covering everything from understanding container basics through to deploying applications.
The session will start with an introduction to containers, Docker, and the Google Container Registry. You’ll learn how to containerize workloads in Docker containers, deploy them to Kubernetes clusters provided by Google Kubernetes Engine, and scale those workloads to handle increased traffic.
We’ll also cover how to continuously deploy new code in a Kubernetes cluster to provide application updates.
Our Getting Started with Google Kubernetes Engine course is delivered via Virtual Classroom. We also offer it as a private training session that can be delivered virtually or at a location of your choice in the US.
