Training Kubernetes and CI/CD

Learn to work with Kubernetes, GitLab, Helm and CI / CD.

Two day Kubernetes training for developers

Cyso notices that there is a need for scalable cloud solutions and an agile approach. They regularly see that the companies lack the knowledge to make a good start with Kubernetes (K8s): a lot of time is wasted on learning to use the Kubernetes, deployments in particular prove to be a obstacle. This is why Cyso asked DevOn to develop a training specifically for the use of CI/CD and Kubernetes. The training curve is shortened enormously by the training of just two days and afterwards the developers can independently deploy containers/applications on a (managed) Kubernetes platform in a very short time. This provides a huge profit on the payback period of development time.

Course objectives
