There’s no denying that Kubernetes has now become the de-facto industry standard for container orchestration - and Amazon EKS continues to rise in popularity as the most adopted managed Kubernetes service in the cloud .
Welcome to this course on Amazon EKS - the only course you need to learn in order to provision your managed Kubernetes cluster, run your containerized applications on it, and tap into the eco-system of allied tools and technologies supporting it.
I have distilled my professional experience of using Amazon EKS in a real-world large-scale enterprise-grade project for over 1 year into this particular course so that you can benefit from it without having to spend countless hours going through the hoops. I am also a Certified Kubernetes Administrator (CKA) & a Certified Kubernetes Application Developer (CKAD) as of Dec 2019.
