This three-day instructor-led class introduces participants to deploying and managing containerized applications on Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE) and the other services provided by Google Cloud. Through a combination of presentations, demos, and hands-on labs, participants explore and deploy solution elements, including infrastructure components such as pods, containers, deployments, and services; as well as networks and application services. This course also covers deploying practical solutions including security and access management, resource management, and resource monitoring.

I can only say Thank You for persisting - following up and getting me into this class. Well spent 20-25 hours

We covered a lot of material in three days. This was a real crash course in different AWS Infrastructure.

Our instructor Mohammad Meimandi was a great resource. He helped clarify a lot of concepts. Overall I liked the Quiklabs as they offered a great hands-on experience to drive the concepts.

Great experience with using the online training with Webcam and Zoom. It is as if I was there in the same classroom but in the comfort of my own setting.

Great facility with good selection of drinks and small snacks. Equipment also worked flawlessly.
