“I have compared this to other courses at Udemy and Linux Academy. All have the strengths and gaps, so far this is a winner!” –  Thomas Trauss, Student

Learning Kubernetes is essential for any DevOps professional. DevOps engineers are always in demand. Currently the average Silicon Valley salary for a DevOps engineer is 20% higher than what a software engineer makes. DevOps engineers make an average of $140,000 to $200,000 annually. And One  of the most in-demand skills is Kubernetes Administration.

Kubernetes is an open-source system for automating deployment, scaling, and management of containerized applications. It was originally designed by Google and is now maintained by the Cloud Native Computing Foundation.

                                                                                                    Simplify Complex Technology
