"Would be their student again, 10/10!"

"This is the best quality technical training I've ever attended."

"I'm connecting the dots on a lot of things I've had to do over the past year"

"Seriously the best course I've taken all year."

"Some of the best paced instruction I have ever seen."

"The instructors are very knowledgeable fun people :)"

Intended Audience

We recommend this course for your architects, engineers, and platform operations teams.

To get the most out of this subject, students should come prepared with an understanding of the Kubernetes fundamentals, Bash scripting, and the basics of Linux processes, users, and permissions. A good place to start is with our Core Kubernetes course.

I have... Questions?

Why only four hours of training per day?

We believe that sitting in an eight hour lecture is simply mind-numbing. Four hours of intense lecture and hands-on-labs is the perfect amount of time to ingest the information, and gives your brain the downtime it needs to absorb it.

So what's with the Q&A sessions? Are they any good?

Some of our past students think the Q&A sessions were the best part of the workshop. They give you a chance to ask more detailed questions, and dig into how Kubernetes works (or doesn't) in your unique situation.

Where is the course being held?

In your living room! We're passionately 100% remote, and so is our training. Humans learn better when we're comfortable, and when we haven't had to sit in a grueling 45 minute commute.

What happens if I hate the course?

We truly believe our workshops are the best money can buy. If you disagree, we'll happily refund the full ticket cost.

I'm still so full of questions!

Not a problem at all! Just shoot us an email!

I'm sold! How do I sign up?

Why, I'm so glad you asked...

Make the best purchase of your career.

This is just one of the many great workshops in our cloud-native curriculum!

The SuperOrbital Difference

We're infrastructure experts with a reputation for delivering great work. Here’s how we're different:

Battle Hardened

We bring real experience.

We don't just teach: we do. We've wrestled with Kubernetes, Terraform, Istio, Docker and all of the others in real production situations. We've used them in anger. We know where the tools fall down and what the documentation hides.

Unbiased

We give the best advice for your situation.

We believe in cloud native solutions, but we aren't beholden to any vendor. Every situation is unique, and every tool has flaws. We help you understand how the technologies work together to solve your problems. We guide you away from the tools that are hype, and toward those that have proven their worth.

Intensely Hands-On

More than 50% of the time spent in labs.

That's not a typo. We don’t believe in static, podium-based training with some boring instructor talking at you.

Instead, SuperOrbital courses immerse you in an active learning environment where you can internalize the lessons through collaboration and hands-on workshops. The end result is knowledge that sticks, and a foundation for true expertise.

Thorough

You can't understand the big picture without the details.

We dig deep into a topic, when creating our content. We tease apart every aspect, breaking it down into its atomic parts. Then we rearrange them into an order our students can easily digest and remember. Our content goes deep, giving you a foundational understanding of how things work under the hood.

Remote first

We're passionately remote-first, and our training shows it.

The days of hours wasted commuting to work are coming to an end, and good riddance. SuperOrbital has always been a passionately remote-first company, and we bring that to our training.

Why travel out of town to sit in a hot, crowded, uncomfortable room for days at a time? Our workshops are taken from the comfort of your own home, and at a schedule that encourages deep learning.

Each of our workshop days consists of three hours of training and a one-hour Q&A session. This helps keep the training active and inspiring, and gives plenty of time for the knowledge to gel.

It's cliché to say it, but we truly believe our workshops are the best money can buy.

If you disagree, we'll happily refund the full ticket cost. No shit.
