Is Kubernetes Certification Necessary?

While being a Certified Kubernetes Administrator (CKA) is definitely a plus, there are
plenty of people who learn how to run a Kubernetes cluster the old-fashioned way with
hard-earned experience and the scars to prove it. In fact, we believe that experience
executing specific tasks is more useful than a CKA credential. The reason for this is twofold:

  • Kubernetes is far more complex than any certification course can capture.
  • Invariably, any Kubernetes deployment is a bit of a snowflake once all the services are
    built, networking is configured, and security is set up.

The best of both worlds, of course, is experience and a certification. Pursuing a CKA after
having spent time hands-on with Kubernetes is a great strategy.

Will a Kubernetes certification help you land a new role ?

A Kubernetes certification is most often pursued as a means to professional
development, whether that is landing your first role in tech or pivoting into a cloudnative role.

What is Docker and why it is used?

Docker is an open source containerization platform. It enables developers to package applications into containers—standardized executable components combining application source code with the operating system (OS) libraries and dependencies required to run that code in any environment.

What is Kubernetes?

Kubernetes is a portable, extensible, open source platform for managing containerized workloads and services, that facilitates both declarative configuration and automation. It has a large, rapidly growing ecosystem. Kubernetes services, support, and tools are widely available.
