Getting Started with Kubernetes on AWS

Needs a location

On the 17th, 18th and 21st of October 2019, AWS is hosting a training course for systems administrators and DevOps engineers looking to learn how to get started with Kubernetes on AWS. Over the course of three evenings, we will explore the concepts of containerization and container orchestration, then build and deploy to a Kubernetes cluster in a series of hands-on labs and activities. If you're new to AWS and/or Docker, and you'd like to gain some increasingly-relevant new skills, then join us for this introductory course in our Portland, OR office. Space is limited! Please register here so that we can get you confirmed for the event: https://gettingstartedwithkubernetes5d7163afe949e.splashthat.com/ Some of the topics we will cover include: * Architecting applications for containerization * Introduction to Docker * Container orchestration platforms * Introduction to Kubernetes By the end of the course, you will have gained real world experience in working with Kubernetes clusters, as well as experience in deploying and managing containerized applications on AWS. This will also be a chance to meet our team of support engineers here in Portland, OR over food and drinks and explore the opportunities available as an engineer specializing in deployment technologies. Who should attend? * Systems administrators * DevOps engineers Suited for system administrators and DevOps engineers, the workshops will cover several AWS services, including but not limited to Elastic Container Service for Kubernetes (EKS). Basic knowledge of core AWS services such as EC2 and VPC will be beneficial, as will a basic knowledge of Docker, however these are not required. On the third evening, you will be presented with an exercise to apply the skills presented on the previous evenings, with the potential for interested participants to be directly invited for a face-to-face interview in the following weeks. While the cloud is without limits, food and beer are another story so space is limited and registration is required.
