Kubernetes Workshops

Master Cloud Native Deployments with Kubernetes.

Trusted by customers from multinational banks to funded startups, SuperOrbital's Kubernetes workshops are just what you need to bring your team up to speed on this powerful but complex platform.

Incubated inside Google as an open source version of Omega, Kubernetes has quickly become the de facto standard in cloud native container orchestration. Kubernetes can be a fundamental building block in more complex microservice architectures, unlocking a DevOps based workflow for your team. But Kubernetes is a complex beast, composed of many interchangeable subsystems, and requiring a significant investment in operational automation and monitoring. That’s where our training comes in.

Turn your team into Kubernetes experts.

SuperOrbital offers two complementary workshops. The first, aimed at your operations team, helps them understand how all of the internal Kubernetes pieces work together, how to deploy and manage them effectively at scale, and how to debug the internals when things go wrong.

The second focuses on your application development team, showing them all of the power Kubernetes unlocks, and how to architect their applications using microservice best practices to make full use of the platform.

We can tailor our training to focus on one of the hosted Kubernetes platforms, or self-deployed on any IaaS or bare-metal.

Topics covered are entirely up to you and your needs.

Common examples include:

Prerequisites

To get the most out of this subject, students should come prepared with an understanding of:

  • Linux and Unix processes, users, and permissions
  • The fundamentals of virtualization and containerization
  • The Bash shell and rudimentary scripting

Intended audiences

We can tailor this subject to focus on the needs of:

  • Application developers deploying to Kubernetes
  • Operations people managing Kubernetes clusters
  • Security teams who need to secure Kubernetes and deployed applications.

SuperOrbital also offers training in Microservices, Cloud Foundry, Agile Engineering, and the Hashicorp tools.

The SuperOrbital Difference

We're dedicated to delivering direct value and to ensuring customer success. Here’s how that makes us 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 immediate 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 you.

Here for you

We help after the training is through.

Unlike other companies, we do more than training. In order to keep our skills sharp we have a deep engineering practice as well. This gives us and 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.

Hands-on

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.

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.
