The Linux Foundationrecently announced the availability of a new training course, LFS244 – Managing Kubernetes Applications with Helm. Developed in conjunction with CNCF, the course is designed for system administrators, DevOps engineers, site reliability engineers, software engineers and others who wish to enhance their operational experience running containerized workloads on the Kubernetes platform.
Helm, an emerging, open source technology, enables packaging and running applications on Kubernetes in a simple, efficient way. Helm is considered a package manager for Kubernetes, similar to “apt” or “yum” on various Linux distributions, or “brew” on macOS. Using Helm, you can package, share, and install applications built and designed to run on Kubernetes.
This course provides a deep dive into Helm and how it’s used in real-world scenarios to manage the lifecycle of applications on Kubernetes. It covers a wide array of topics, including the history of the Helm project and its architecture, how to properly install the Helm client, the various components of a Helm chart and how to create one, the command-line actions used for managing an application’s lifecycle, and much more.
Hands-on labs enable students to do everything from installing Helm to run applications, to creating clusters, managing the lifecycle of a sample Python application and more. The course takes approximately 25-30 hours to complete, including labs.
