There are a few online training resources I’ve had a play with while learning Kubernetes, so I figure that’s worth a quick write up. This is a follow on from my post about Kubernetes podcasts I’ve tried. I’ve tried three training providers so far:
- The Linux Foundation Kubernetes course (LFS258 Kubernetes Fundamentals) is probably the “go to” resource for many people, and is often sold bundled with the certification exams. Unfortunately, it is really terrible. It is by far the worst course I’ve seen so far.
- On the other hand, the Linux Academy Kubernetes course is really good. It is flaw is that you have to sign up to Linux Academy, which provides you with all you can eat courses for a rather steep annual fee.
- Finally, I discovered Mumshad Mannambeth’s Udemy courses, and frankly they’re excellent. He’s put a huge amount of effort into them and it really shows. Even better, with Udemy’s regular sales you can pick up his three Kubernetes courses (intro, admin certification, and developer certification) for under $50 AUD. There are even plenty of online quizzes.
If I was going to pick a course to try, I’d definitely go with Mumshad.
