*** Updated for latest CKAD (2022) 1.26 version of Exam ***A Kubernetes Certification can take your career to a whole new level. Learn, practice, and get certified on Kubernetes with hands-on labs right in your browser.”I passed the exam and certified CKAD now. I didn’t passed at the first attempt. Second time, I found  this course on official page k8s and did practice all the labs. Honestly, labs are very challenging and great for the CKAD!” – Dave, 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 Deployment.Kubernetes is an open-source system for automating the 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 TechnologyKubernetes is at the cutting edge of application deployment. To elevate your DevOps career, learn how to deploy applications on Kubernetes effectively.This course helps you gain the knowledge required to design and deploy cloud-native applications on a Kubernetes cluster.  A series of well-designed lectures with animation and illustration help you understand complex concepts easily. “Passed with a 70%, next up CKA​. Your teaching style is great​!” – Colin, Student                                                                                                      Practice! Practice! Practice!Lectures alone won’t help you clear the certification. The Kubernetes Certification is a practical hands-on exam. You need hands-on experience, to get fast, and to practice. That is what our integrated hands-on lab experience gives you. Our coding quizzes can be accessed right in your browser without having to set up any lab environment yourself. We validate your work and give you feedback instantly. Preview a few lab exercises for Free!!”I completed my certification 75% on second attempt. Thanks to @Mumshad Mannambeth and others who helped me out.​” – Murali, StudentAfter you have completed the lectures and coding exercises, you will have the opportunity to complete a series of assignments that put your new skills to the test. You will be given the challenge to solve using the Kubernetes skills you have learned.This will give you real-world experience and the chance to work with other students in the community. You will develop a Kubernetes deployment and get feedback for your work.”Finally i passed ckad exam, my hearty thanks to @Mumshad Mannambeth, for his courses and guidance…it was helpful for me in the exam​” – Anish Seelan, Student                                                                                                      Join Our Community!Once you enroll in the course, you will get access to our community of teachers and learners on Slack, where we discuss important topics, tips, and tricks to pass the exam.
