Kubernetes learning and training
Get guidance on your cloud-native journey. Explore Kubernetes learning and training resources—including videos, articles, books, and technical webinars. Understand the basics and get hands-on experience with various Kubernetes capabilities and solutions, including Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS).
Get an overview of Kubernetes
Begin your Kubernetes training by familiarizing yourself with the software—and its components—at a high level. If you’re completely new to Kubernetes, start by learning what Kubernetes is and then learn how containers work. If you’re already familiar with containers and Docker, an open-source container format, see how Kubernetes and Docker work together.
Begin using containerized applications
Visualize the relationships among Kubernetes components and concepts—including the cluster and the control plane. And, see tips for deploying apps and workloads as well as structuring and securing Kubernetes environments.
Learn Kubernetes the fun way with Phippy
Explore Kubernetes concepts like pods and deployments—presented in the style of an illustrated children’s book. Follow Phippy the giraffe and Zee the zebra in this lighthearted educational adventure.
Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS) core concepts
Learn how infrastructure components, access and identity, security, network, storage, and scaling function in Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS) in these technical articles. AKS is a managed Kubernetes service that further simplifies container-based application deployment and management.
See how infrastructure components such as the control plane, nodes, and node pools work in AKS—along with workload resources such as pods, deployments, and sets. Learn to group resources into namespaces.
Authenticate and assign permissions in AKS using Kubernetes service accounts, Azure Active Directory integration, role-based access control, Roles and ClusterRoles, and RoleBindings and ClusterRoleBindings.
Safeguard your applications in AKS with master components security, node security, cluster upgrades, network security, and Kubernetes secrets.
Scale applications in AKS using manual scale, horizontal pod autoscaler (HPA), cluster autoscaler, and Azure Container Instance (ACI) integration.
Store applications in AKS using volumes, persistent volumes, storage classes, and persistent volume chains.
Kubernetes training webinars
