Hi,

I am transitioning into the devops role at my workplace (can't wait) and I know for a fact I will be dealing with kubernetes etc.

In principle I know what it's purpose is and the role it plays in the technological stack, just that I never had much (or anything) to do with it so far.

So my question is will a kubernetes-greenhorn such as myself benefit from the lecture?

Thanks,

/SM

Hi SM,

Congrats on your transition to DevOps! It is an excellent decision.

Kubernetes is a cornerstone in DevOps and Cloud world, and you definitely should learn it. I can't give you an exact learning path for DevOps, but Kubernetes should be something that you should learn immediately after public cloud foundations and general CICD knowledge.

As for our book, It is one of few books that were written based on real-life experiences from real projects on productions, and it has very essential knowledge for any DevOps and cloud engineer who will be dealing with production on K8s. However, it is not an introductory book to K8s, and to gain the full benefit from the book (which by the way covers other areas for DevOps like IaC with Terraform) is to go through beginners guide at https://kubernetes.io/ then start reading the book.


Best of Luck!

-Aly

This actually encourages me more to  start working through the book and fill in the blanks as I go along with the help of other online resources. Perhaps not the most obvious way to go about learning a subject but I'm confident having solid foundation in the theoretical concepts I should be able to fill in the voids quite handy. Thanks!
