Docker and Kubernetes workshops

Don't pay for monotonous, canned training delivered by freshmen hires.

SuperOrbital delivers outstanding results each and every time.

While others use the pre-packaged generic publicly available content, our workshops are lovingly crafted in-house. This lets us refine and polish the content, and allows us to be vendor neutral. We'll tell you where the tools fall down, and what you can do about it.

Oh, and instead of sending in the new trainee, each workshop is delivered in person by the company founder.

"Seriously the best course I've taken all year."

SuperOrbital Student

We have an entire curriculum to choose from, but we'd be delighted to create bespoke content just for you at no charge.

Each workshop is two days long, intensely hands-on, and delivered at your location by SuperOrbital’s founder, Tammer Saleh.

The courses follow a progression from container novice to cloud-native expert. Each course can be customized to match your team’s knowledge and needs, and we’re happy to develop custom chapters to explore topics not covered below.

Docker 101

Novice to Container Pro

This two day workshop covers everything you need to quickly graduate from cloud-native novice to container expert.

"This is the best quality technical training I've ever attended."

Docker 101 Graduate

Start with the Docker basics: the docker command, Dockerfiles, networking, registries and storage. Then quickly advance into subduing the build cache, crafting production images, mastering multi-stage builds, using Docker Compose and more.

We recommend this course for your application delivery and platform operations teams.

Kubernetes 201

Core Kubernetes Proficiency

Learn all of the fundamentals necessary to deploy your production applications to a Kubernetes cluster.

"AWESOME! THANK YOU!"

Kubernetes 201 Graduate

Learn about the core building blocks: Deployments, DaemonSets, CronJobs, StatefulSets, the various Services, and Ingress and more. Walk away with a deep understanding of how all of the parts fit together and how they work under the hood.

We recommend this course for your application delivery and platform operations teams.

Kubernetes 301

Administration, Automation and Extension

Expand on your core cloud-native knowledge by exploring the deeper topics of Kubernetes platform management.

"Would be their student again, 10/10!"

Kubernetes 301 Graduate

Grasp the complex intricacies of Network and Pod security. Learn how to tweak the scheduler for greater Pod performance and stability. Write against the Kubernetes API in NodeJS and Python. Practice extending the platform via CRDs, custom controllers, and even custom schedulers.

We recommend this course for your advanced platform operations teams and for those looking to extend the platform with custom operators.

Kubernetes 401

Leverage The Cloud-Native Ecosystem

Take your knowledge up a layer, beyond the Kubernetes platform and into the cloud-native ecosystem.

"My only complaint is that I didn't get this training a year ago."

Kubernetes 401 Graduate

Achieve packaging and templating nirvana with Helm and Kustomize. Dig into real-world routing problems with an advanced Nginx lesson. Practice continual deployment and GitOps through workflow engines. Get network visibility, resiliency and security for free with Istio. Put all of your knowledge to the test in the Wargames!

We recommend this course for your advanced platform operations teams and for those looking to manage complex microservice applications.

The SuperOrbital Difference

We're infrastructure experts with a reputation for delivering great work. Here’s how we're different:


Bespoke

We tailor each course to your needs.

Most training companies reuse publicly available stock training content, no matter your team's background, skill level, or needs. We’re different. We work with you beforehand to produce a tailored workshop. Each one is densely packed with content that's directly useful to your team.

Intensely Hands-On

Over four hours of hands-on labs per day.

That's not a typo. We don’t believe in static, podium-based training. Instead, SuperOrbital courses immerse your team in an active learning environment where they internalize the lessons through collaboration and hands-on workshops. The end result is knowledge that sticks, and a foundation for true expertise.

Here for you

We help after the training is through.

Unlike other companies, we do more than training. We have a deep engineering practice, and this gives you an advantage. We’re able to help with architectural guidance and engineering after the workshop is done. We can help you apply the knowledge you've gained through the bedrock of practice.

Unbiased

We give the best advice for your situation.

We believe in cloud native solutions, but we aren't beholden to any vendor. Every situation is unique, and every tool has flaws. We help you understand how the available solutions work together to solve your problems. We guide you away from the tools that are hype, and toward those that are battle tested.
