The skills you will have after you take this course
Modern apps are typically built using containers and microservices, so this course introduces you to both.
- You’ll learn the difference between containers and virtual machines and the benefits of using containers rather than virtual machines for running applications.
- The course describes the role of microservices in improving software development processes.
As organizations begin developing modern apps using containerization, they find it useful to use Kubernetes to automate the deployment and management of those containers.
- You’ll gain hands-on experience using Kubernetes and understanding the basics of Kubernetes architecture.
- You’ll also learn how to use Kubernetes to orchestrate and scale the applications as needed.
The topics you will learn about in this course
To give you a snapshot of everything our new course covers, let’s look at the course modules.
The course is designed as a progression, introducing core concepts in app modernization first and moving in a logical way through the related technologies and skills that will enable you to support modern applications in the real world.
