Comprehensive kubernetes book.

Some context: I do not use kubernetes either at home or at work, but I am very curious about this new technology. Before this, I read a book from Brendan Burns (Designing Distributed Systems) which was a disappointment. I also used docker at work, and some docker-compose, but I'm no expert.

This book is suited for people interested in systems architecture in general, as there's a lot of overlap between this general field and architecture of apps running on kubernete

A nice quick overview of the Kubernetes ecosystem including some external tools. This is not in-depth Kubernetes book or even in-depth DevOps book.

It will not provide enough information to work with Kubernetes fluently, nor it will help understand how this all fits into devops world. But you will be able to use Kubernetes after this book and you will be provided with bunch of nice tips&tricks.

Easy to follow, small enough to have an insight about Kubernetes. I am a programmer and this book fits a lot for me.

I think this is a very good book for software engineers and aspiring DevOps engineers to read. DevOps is part and parcel of software engineering and to be able to deploy an application with availability and scalability is expected of a software engineer. While this book focuses a lot on the tools and techniques used for DevOps, the methodologies used to do DevOps are similar to that of software engineering - when in doubt, Google and StackOverflow ;) Jokes aside, DevOps is not that hard if you h ...more

This book is an introduction on how Kubernetes (k8s) works with an added emphasis on running in production environments and at scale. The beginning pages give a solid baseline on k8s and make a case for it being the "operating system of the cloud".

A few notable chapters stand out, describing tools that interact with k8s. Chapters dedicated to tools, CI/CD, deploying, secrets, observability, metrics and performance are all invaluable pieces of knowledge. The authors clearly has much hands-on expe

Currently I am moving from Software Engineering role to a Site Reliability Engineering role in my company and the foundation is based on Kubernetes.

The book gave a solid background about Kubernetes and the whole ecosystem around it. I felt confident in my day job, because I built a mental model which helped me to reason about the things happening.

One of the main advantages of the book in my opinion is, that it is short and precise. You will learn enough, hear about some things which maybe will b

Great book for introduction to Kubernetes and it's ecosystem. Great example with great resources where to find more information. Loved this line: "Real learning comes from failures, and from trying to figure out what's wrong and fix them." ...more

It's no doubt one of the best books with practical advice and should be used as a standard reference.

As expected some of the commands and programs are outdated and you have to put a bit extra effort to make those run.

Worth every minute you spend in going through it.

This is a good introduction to Kubernetes and the related tools and DevOps environment. Well done for dedicating more than a chapter to security. I recommend it, unlike Kubernetes: Up and Running.

Great intro to Kuberenetes, DevOps and Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS).
It pretty much explains everything you need to know for practical management of deployment for Cloud-Native apps.
The thing I think was missing was an extra deep dive into Kubernetes internals (though this books contains some explanations in high level of what Kubernetes is doing in some situations which is more than enough for most of Kubernetes users)

Просто хороший справочник. Нет такого, чтобы захотелось что-то взять и сделать. Купить стоит, но не нужно ожидать эффекта как от «kubernetes в действии»
