Introduction to Serverless on Kubernetes

Linux Foundation via edX

Overview

With the advent of systems like AWS Lambda, the term serverless gained much popularity. However, many people are still unsure what it is for, and how it can help them build applications faster than traditional approaches. Other potential users are turned off by the arbitrary limits and lock-in of cloud-based serverless products.

This course will teach you what “serverless” means and how it can be made portable with open source frameworks. You will get a good overview of the CNCF serverless landscape, and a first-hand experience in building and deploying code, directly to a Kubernetes cluster.

You will build functions using Python and learn how to configure them, manage secrets, add dependencies via pip, learn how to work with binary data, and add authentication. In the second part of the course you will explore the operational side of functions with Kubernetes. This will introduce auto-scaling, metrics, dashboards and how to expose them securely on the Internet with TLS.

If you are a developer or an IT operator interested in exploring new approaches for building software, and prefer to be able to set your own limits when it comes to things like timeouts and choice of programming language, this is the course for you!
