SuperOrbital student

Kubernetes provides the API. It's up to you to use it.

Kubernetes provides a massively useful idempotent, declarative and reliable API. It unlocks an incredible amount of developer productivity and an entire industry of tools have been built to help. But like any new industry, the value is drowned in a sea of complexity, ineffectiveness, and vendor lock-in.

We explain the value of GitOps, help you understand the landscape of tools, and show you how to put them to use.

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

This is just one of the many great courses 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 it's 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.
