So you want to learn Kubernetes. But here's the problem: where do you find a good resource on the subject?

After all, there are many video courses that claim to teach Kubernetes. Some are good. Some not so much.

Therefore, I wrote this post to try and help you quickly find the best video course for you.

Caveats

  1. I only included courses that teach you how to be a Kubernetes developer / user, not a Kubernetes cluster administrator.
  2. Note that I did not include courses where Kubernetes was only a minor topic.
  3. I also left off any course that was under 2 hours as being way too lightweight and probably lacking substance.
  4. The following tables only contain premium courses, not MOOCs or free tutorials.
  5. Other technologies, like Docker and Helm, are not considered in this post.
