The importance of monitoring cannot be overstated, if we want our businesses to succeed, we need to have as much visibility as possible to the state of our systems. Prometheus is the optimal choice for a monitoring system in 2020, it's open source, feature rich and integrates easily with Kubernetes.
The Ultimate Prometheus course takes you all the way from learning why you should monitor your system to getting Prometheus deployed on Kubernetes. It's meant to save you precious time reading through documentation, googling and experimenting manually with Prometheus to understand how things work. It is actually my own experience of doing these things that inspired me to create this course from the first place. :)
In this course we'll be covering a wide range of topics, including but not limited to:
Why we should monitor our systems and what exactly is it we should be monitoring
Prometheus and monitoring terms, such as Sample, Time Series, TSDB, Label, etc.
How Prometheus works
Prometheus features and architecture (e.g. Service Discovery, Push Gateway, etc)
How to install Prometheus and how to use its web UI
The 4 metric types we have in Prometheus - Counter, Gauge, Histogram and Summary
Exposing metrics with a Go client
Configuring Prometheus and the Alert Manager
Setting up alerts and notifications
Deploying Prometheus on Kubernetes using the Prometheus Operator and CRDs
and so much more!
Enroll to the Ultimate Prometheus course and become a Prometheus expert,
being able to professionally deploy Prometheus and use it to monitor all the different parts of your system.

My name is Eldan, I'm a passionate and versatile software architect with over a decade of experience working on all parts of the stack. While I'm not as obsessed with clean code as I used to be, I'm still one of the "big crazy" refactors guys. I also really like to dig into the internals of different programming languages and writing anything that leverages parallelism.
