Kubernetes basics.
Next, we will understand why we need a good Container Orchestration Engine and see why Kubernetes is your go-to option
Then, we will build and administer production grade Kubernetes clusters on-the-go, on-cloud and as well as locally on your laptop
After that, you will get in depth understanding of what are Pods, how do they connect and communicate and finally will show you how to write Pod manifest file and deploy it on Kubernetes
Then, we will go through managing application protection and high-availability using ReplicaSet, ReplicationController, and DaemonSet,
Finally, using nodePort Service, I will show you how to expose applications on to the internet using NodePort service.


  • Basic understanding of YAML syntax, Linux Commands, Docker, Containers, Google Cloud is a plus. But, not mandatory


Please kindly consider "before you rate and review" this course :  This is  just a getting started course and more over it is a FREE course. Due to its limitation, I could not accommodate everything in it. All course material (YAML Files and PPTs) are part of main course (Kubernetes Made Easy). This course will help you get start with understanding the basics of Kubernetes at a very high-level.

If you are interested in complete Kubernetes course, then your best option is "Kubernetes Made Easy". I have put 9 months of my effort and time in making it. As a result of it, It is now trending as one of the top Kubernetes course on Udemy.

If there are any improvements/suggestions this course needs, then please kindly email me at srinathchalla@outlook.com. I will take that necessary action as soon as possible.

Finally, a big shout-out to my YouTube subscribers and followers who are my main motivators behind my entry into Udemy. Without you, this wouldn't be possible.

Thank you, guys:

Srinath, you are the best. Your series covers everything. Folks, if you are interested in all nuts and bolts of Kubernetes, watching Srinath series is A MUST !!!! - Mathew K's comment @ Containers video

Mr. Srinath, I really dont know - how to thank you. These are excellent kubernets videos, which i come across so far. Each and every small concepts are cleared in-detail. Sincere and humble request for you to put some videos for G-Cloud and Docker. - Vijay's comment @ Pods video

Gone through various Kubernetes paid courses too. But this series is best so far. It is helping me to understand each and every smaller components and configuration of K8S in a very practical manner. Thanks for your effort and time you have devoted to making this course. :) - Vivek @ NodePort Service

I have no words for your explanation, it's a simply superb... I'm very confused after seen too many videos for Kubernetes architecture,now I'm pretty confident and clear about it... Thanks a lot...  - Anil K @ Kubernetes Architecture

Hi! I'm Srinath Challa. I'm the founder of KubeEd. I've started this company with a passion for teaching Technology, especially Kubernetes. I've helped hundreds of thousands of students learn Kubernetes and change their lives by becoming a DevOps Engineer/SREs with building a solid foundation in Kubernetes. I've been invited by many mid-to-large scale companies to teach their employees Kubernetes.

I've started my professional carrier as a Systems Analyst, then promoted to a Systems Engineer and to a lead Systems Architect over the last decade. I hold a Bachelor's and Master's degree in Computer Science from Purdue. But most importantly, I realized that my greatest passion is teaching.

Very soon, Udemy became my go-to platform to share the knowledge I have gained over the years

I spend most of my time researching how to make complex concepts easy to understand. With that thought in mind, I have created various Kubernetes courses with their unique purpose.

- Getting Started with Kubernetes?

- Preparing for Kubernetes Certifications, CKA/CKAD?

- Need to get expertise in Kubernetes?

Then don't waste your time with random tutorials or incomplete videos. All my courses are easy-to-follow, all-in-one packages that will take your skills to the next level.

These courses are exactly the courses I wish I had when I was first getting into Kubernetes back in 2016.

So see for yourself, enroll in one of my courses (or all of them :D) and join my 50,000+ happy students today.

See you inside the courses!
