I recently finished reading the book “Kubernetes: Up and Running” by Kelsey Hightower. Kubernetes is a robust container orchestration system by Google. I have started to learn about Kubernetes and how it can be used in large-scale, complex software development.
The book is written for a person who is interested in getting hands-on exposure to anyone interested in Kubernetes and does a great job at it. The authors will help you develop an understanding of Kubernetes from the ground up, with proper examples on how to use it.
Things I liked about the book:
- A proper and a complete introduction to Kubernetes and Docker
- Practical examples
- Well written and working code examples
- Introduction to all the different components in Kubernetes
I plan to use the knowledge I gained from it to use not only at work but also in my side projects. Having gained experience of Kubernetes through this book, I am interested in knowing more about the internals of the system. In the future, I plan to go through the great kubernetes the hard way guide by the same author, and it is a complete guide to setup Kubernetes manually.
