Course Description

Fundamentals of Containers, Kubernetes, and Red Hat OpenShift In the world of software development, the use of containers has revolutionized the way applications are built, tested, and deployed. Containers offer a lightweight and efficient way to package software and its dependencies, making it easier to deploy and scale applications across different environments. Kubernetes, on the other hand, is a powerful container orchestration system that automates the deployment, scaling, and management of containerized applications. This course on the Fundamentals of Containers, Kubernetes, and Red Hat OpenShift is designed to provide you with a comprehensive understanding of these technologies and their applications in modern software development. The course will take you through the basics of containerization, including container images, Docker, and container runtimes. You will also learn about Kubernetes and its architecture, including how it manages containerized applications, and how to deploy, scale, and manage Kubernetes clusters. The course will also cover the basics of Red Hat OpenShift, a powerful platform for developing and deploying containerized applications. You will learn about the OpenShift architecture and how it builds on top of Kubernetes to provide additional features and capabilities. You will also learn how to deploy applications on OpenShift, including how to create and manage projects, build and deploy images, and manage application lifecycle. Throughout the course, you will gain hands-on experience with these technologies through a series of labs and exercises. You will use tools like Minikube, kubectl, and OpenShift to create and manage containers, Kubernetes clusters, and OpenShift projects. You will also learn best practices for working with containers and Kubernetes, including how to secure containers and how to optimize containerized applications for performance and scalability. By the end of the course, you will have a solid understanding of containers, Kubernetes, and Red Hat OpenShift, and how they can be used to develop and deploy modern applications. You will be equipped with the skills and knowledge needed to work with these technologies in real-world scenarios, and you will be ready to take the next steps in your journey to becoming a containerization and Kubernetes expert.
